- American Jim Furyk will complete the field for the 32nd PGA Grand Slam of Golf, the annual 36-hole showdown between the year's major tournament winners after he was named as the fourth player on Wednesday.

Furyk will join Masters champion Bubba Watson of the United States, US Open winner Martin Kaymer of Germany and Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy, the British Open and PGA Championship winner, in the elite field October 14-15 at Port Royal Golf Course in Bermuda.

McIlroy's back-to-back major wins, the first by one player since Irishman Padraig Harrington in 2008, opened a spot in the field for the top player among past major champions based upon results in this year's majors.

Australian Adam Scott, last year's Grand Slam winner after capturing his first major title at the 2013 Masters, topped that list but turned down the invitation due to a schedule conflict.
