(Newser) – U.S. Open champion Angel Cabrera defeated British Open champion Padraig Harrington on the third playoff hole to capture the PGA Grand Slam of Golf. The final day of the two-day event began poorly for Cabrera when he triple bogeyed the first and then bogeyed the second, but the Argentinean ended strong, finishing birdie-eagle to force a playoff, reports the AP.

The Grand Slam of Golf, held this year in Bermuda, pits the four major champions against one another. Cabrera and Harrington were followed by Jim Furyk, who replaced the absent PGA champion Tiger Woods, and Masters champion Zach Johnson. Cabrera was pleased with the win, even though it was an exhibition. “I wouldn't have liked to be second here,” he said. (Read more PGA stories.)
