Padraig Harrington didn’t know he would be playing in the PGA Grand Slam of Golf until Saturday. On Wednesday, he won the event.
After playoff losses in 2007 and 2008, the Irishman shot a 4-under 67 on Wednesday to win by a single stroke at Port Royal Golf Course.
Harrington, who replaced Open Champion Ernie Els, finished at 9-under 133 and won by a single stroke over U.S. Open winner Webb Simpson, who fired a 6-under 65 in the second and final round.
