Grand Slam of Golf to go to Bermuda again in 2008

The end-of-season PGA Grand Slam of Golf will return to the island of Bermuda in 2008 for the second successive year, organizers said on Monday.

The 36-hole stroke-play event, which brings together the winners of the year's four majors, will be held at The Mid Ocean Club in Tucker's Town from October 14 to 15.

"Bermuda is not only one of the more beautiful places in the world but it displayed unmatched hospitality as the first site outside North America to host the PGA Grand Slam of Golf," PGA of America president Brian Whitcomb said in a statement.

"The combination of a classic venue that challenged major champions, a large gallery and the outstanding support from the island's corporate community produced one of our all-time best PGA of Grand Slam of Golf events.

"We look forward with great excitement to bringing golf's major champions back next fall to Bermuda."

U.S. Open champion Angel Cabrera of Argentina won this year's title at The Mid Ocean Club, beating British Open winner Padraig Harrington of Ireland in a playoff.

The elite four-man tournament, billed as "the most exclusive tournament in golf," was held in Hawaii from 1991 to 2006.
