Lucas Glover leads PGA Grand Slam of Golf at end of Day One

Recap of day one at the Port Royal golf course for the PGA Grand Slam of Golf.

Oct. 21, 2009 - PRLog -- With two key long distance putts on the 4th and 17th holes, six birdies and an eagle, Lucas Glover finished six under par and holds a two stroke lead in Tuesday’s opening round of the PGA Grand Slam of Golf 2009, hosted in Bermuda’s Port Royal Golf Course, a recently renovated course with some of the most scenic holes in the world – on what was albeit a breezy and semi-cloudy day.

Stewart Cink opened up with a four under par 65, two strokes behind Glover – while Angel Cabrera ended up with a 1 under par 70 – after being level with Glover and Cink for most of the first 9 holes, while Y.E. Yang came in fourth place after day one with a 71, leaving him even.

The four golfers, winners of the Majors golf tournaments in 2009, will face off again on Wednesday for the second round.  This was the first time all the pros got to play on the newly renovated course (with exception of some limited practice the day before which saw torrential downpours) and Glover contributes that to his success.  “I think, truthfully, seeing the course might have helped, because we might not have known where some of the trouble was,” he added, but it doesn’t look to be a strategy he’d always use.  

The PGA Grand Slam of Golf will continue Wednesday, Oct. 21, from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. ET (10:00 to 2:00 a.m. GMT) on various channels globally (please check local listings for more detail).

Viewers can compete with the four golf pros online, and compete for prizes of their own.  A golfing holiday to Bermuda is available to the winner of the Slam Dunk golf game at Imagine golf Club.  Players can visit on Tuesday and Wednesday, competing for the best score, upon which several prizes are available.   Runners-up receive top brand golf equipment from brands including Nike, Cleveland and Srixon.

To get acquainted with the scenic course, view pictures at the official Port Royal Golf website at – who will also be hosting the 2010 PGA Grand Slam of Golf.  Live scores and updates for the PGA Grand Slam of Golf will also be available throughout the tournament on the Imagine Golf Club website at
