Adam Scott clinched the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda after breaking the course record at Port Royal Golf Course to edge out overnight-leader Justin Rose by two shots.

The Masters champion bagged $600,000 after producing a tournament-winning shot at the par-5 17th, hitting his approach to within a few inches of the hole to register an eagle, and with it move above Rose to take the lead.

Scott beat the course record by one shot after hitting a seven-under 64, and finished on eight-under with Rose managing a two-under 69, and the US Open champion being unable to match or better his first-round 67 in leading the competition.

Padraig Harrington, the man who relinquishes his crown, finished on three-over, while US PGA winner Jason Dufner was on three-under after rounds of 69 and 70 across the two days.
