Grand Slam moves to fit in with players

The Grand Slam of Golf was supposed to be played Dec. 3-4 at Poipu Bay on Kauai until a small problem came up -- two of the major champions had other plans.

PGA champion Vijay Singh decided to play in the Father-Son Challenge with son Qass in Orlando, Fla., that same weekend. U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen already was committed to play an event in his native South Africa.

The easiest solution was to move the 36-hole tournament to Nov. 23-24, and make sure it wasn't a problem for Masters champion Phil Mickelson and British Open champion Todd Hamilton.

Moving the Grand Slam of Golf up a week now makes for a full week of golf in a never-ending season. It will be played the Tuesday-Wednesday before Thanksgiving, followed by the Merrill Lynch Skins Game that weekend.
