The first all-international cast since 1994 – U.S. Open Champion Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland, Open Champion Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa, PGA Champion Martin Kaymer of Germany and three-time major champion Ernie Els of South Africa – form the elite foursome for the 28th PGA Grand Slam of Golf, Oct. 18-20, at Port Royal Golf Course in Bermuda.

Els, who won the 1997 PGA Grand Slam of Golf, replaces Masters Champion Phil Mickelson, who will not be able to compete due to his diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis. Mickelson elected to rest and spend time with his family for a month after a busy late season schedule that includes the Ryder Cup.

Season tickets for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be available for $50. Daily tickets for individual attendance will be available for $20 on Monday for the Champions Clinic and Pro-Am and $20 each day for the Tuesday and Wednesday competition days.

In an effort to encourage more youths to become involved in the game of golf, juniors age 17 and younger will be admitted free when accompanied by a ticket-bearing adult.

Tickets for the 28th PGA Grand Slam of Golf may be purchased, via telephone by dialing 1-800-PGA-GOLF (800-742-4653), or 561-624-7601, or by visiting www.pgagrandslamofgolf.com.
