Scott pips Rose

First published in Sport

ADAM SCOTT fired a courserecord 64 to storm past Justin Rose and claim victory at the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda.

Rose had led by a single stroke with three holes to play but he had no answer for Scott in the closing stages as the Australian won the 36-hole tournament – which gathers the season’s four major champions – by two shots on eight under.

The Masters winner took control on the penultimate hole when his six-iron landed within inches to allow him a tap-in eagle three.

US Open champion Rose had given up his single-shot lead at the previous hole, forced to take a drop after a wayward tee shot, before par on the 17th left him two shots adrift as Scott accelerated.

Scott’s win means that he was able to add the winner’s pink jacket to the green one he dramatically secured following a play-off against Angel Cabrera at Augusta in April.

Jason Dufner finished third on three under while Padraig Harrington, who replaced Open champion Phil Mickelson, was well off the pace on three over following a 71 on Wednesday.
