Not all the action was at Mid Ocean Club on Wednesday, John Byrwa discovered. At a special event called "Turn Bermuda On," hundreds of golfers and non-golfers alike gathered to partake in all kinds of PGA Grand Slam-related fun and activities.
Angel Cabrera started his Wednesday with a triple bogey, made up for it with his second back-nine eagle to tie Padraig Harrington and then won the $600,000 first prize with a birdie on the third extra hole in a fantastic finish no one saw coming.
John Byrwa went to the PGA Grand Slam of Golf for the major champion shootout, of course. But from the pop-star premier to an eye-opening new libation, he keeps finding more to like everywhere he looks at the Grand Slam's new home.
Grinding just like he did in the British Open, Padraig Harrington countered three bogeys with six birdies Tuesday to grab a narrow margin over U.S. Open champion Angel Cabrera at Mid Ocean Club. Jim Furyk and Zach Johnson are four back.
Bermuda's golfers and its business community are rightly enthused about the PGA Grand Slam of Golf's staging this week. On Monday, though, the real excitement was seen in the wide-eyed faces of all the youngsters at the Champions Clinic.
The PGA Grand Slam of Golf has a new home, but some things never change. The venue is an island paradise, the perks are fantastic, the field is amazing. And, oh yes, each of the major champions really wants to win, especially with the purse raised this year.
