PGA Grand Slam Of Golf 2011: Keegan Bradley Wins Tournament By One Strike

Keegan Bradley only needed an even-par 71 on Wednesday to win the PGA Grand Slam of Golf by a single stroke at Port Royal Golf Course.

Bradley finished at four-under 138 for the victory at the championship with the most elite field in golf.

This two-day tournament was reserved for the four major winners of 2011.

Bradley, the PGA Champion, defeated Masters winner Charl Schwartzel by a shot after the South African fired a six-under 65 on Wednesday.

Bradley struggled early with bogeys at one, five and six. He atoned for the error with a birdie at the par-five seventh, but, despite the front-nine woes, he still found himself tied for the lead.

U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy shared the first-round lead with Bradley, but a four-over 75 in the final round dropped the Northern Irishman to third place at even-par 142.

Open Champion Darren Clarke finished a distant fourth after a three-over 74 on Wednesday left him at plus-nine.

PGA Grand Slam Of Golf 2011: Leaderboard Shows Charl Schwartzel Gaining On Keegan Bradley

The 2011 PGA Grand Slam of Golf will wrap up later Wednesday and the results from the early Day 2 action seem to indicate that golf fans might be in for an exciting finish. Rory McIlroy and Keegan Bradley shared the lead after the opening day's action, but Charl Schwartzel seems poised to put himself atop the leaderboard by the time the tournament is complete.

Through 11 holes on the second day of tournament play, Bradley has maintained his lead with a three-under for the tournament despite shooting one-over on Wedneday. Schwartzel, the South African native, is currently on pace to shoot two below par in the tournament after salvaging a disappointing first day of play with a five-under round through the first eleven holes of Day 2.

McIlroy is struggling in his second day of play, however, as he's three-over par on Wednesday to drop him from four-under to just one below par and a current third place spot in the standings. Rounding out the four-man leaderboard is Darren Clarke -- and he'll probably stay there as he's five-over with just seven holes left in the tournament. For the full leaderboard, visit the PGA's official site.

The Grand Slam of Golf is 36 holes, played over two days, featuring the winners of the year's four grand slams. If Bradley is able to hold on for the lead, it'll be quite a prestigious honor as he began this year as a rookie on the PGA Tour.
