Masters Tournament Champion Adam Scott, US Open Champion Justin Rose, US PGA Champion Jason Dufner and defending PGA Grand Slam of Golf Champion Padraig Harrington form the elite foursome who will compete in the 31st PGA Grand Slam of Golf from October 14-16 at Port Royal Golf Course in Bermuda.
 
Scott, Rose and Dufner will make their first appearance in the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, while Harrington is making is fourth visit to the island.  Harrington won last year’s event and finished runner-up in 2007 and 2008.
 
Harrington, whose one-stroke triumph in 2012 made him just the second European-born winner in the event's history, replaces Open Champion Phil Mickelson, who will be unable to compete due to an end-of-season scheduling conflict.
 
The defending champion of the PGA Grand Slam of Golf receives the initial invitation if a current Major champion is unable to compete; then the Major Champions Points list – which charts the performance throughout the year of active Major champions – is used to complete the field.
