PGA-Grand-Slam-of-Golf

 

Proceeding the defunct format of  World Series of Golf , the PGA Grand Slam of Golf was created in 1979.  This is stroke play tournament showcasing the four major champions of the current year.  Although it is a PGA Sanctioned event, it is considered an off-season event so the purse does not count towards the PGA Tour Money List.

Since it’s inception in 1979, this tournament has gone through a variety of changes including format and venue.  Should a player win more than one major in a calendar year or if a player declines the invitation to play, the organization will invite former major champions with the best overall finish for that major.

In 2009, the tournament has moved from the Mid Ocean Club to the Port Royal Golf Course (both located in Bermuda) where it is now annually played.

The current purse for the event is $1.35 million with $600,000 going towards the champion of the event.
