Cabrera fights back to win PGA Grand Slam title

MIAMI, Oct 18 (Reuters) US Open champion Angel Cabrera won the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda, rallying to beat British Open winner Padraig Harrington in a playoff despite making a dreadful start to the second and final round.

The 38-year-old Argentine carded a triple-bogey seven on the first hole but fought his way back. An eagle on the par-five 18th gave him a two-under 68 and took the event into extra holes with the two players tied on four-under-par 136 yesterday.

In the three-hole playoff, the duo parred the first two holes before Cabrera produced a birdie to secure victory at the 18th.

Irishman Harrington (69), who led Cabrera by one stroke overnight, did his title hopes no good with a double-bogey six at the ninth.

The tournament, held at the Mid Ocean Club in Tuckers Town, brought together the winners of the year's four majors, apart from US PGA Championship winner Tiger Woods.

Jim Furyk (67), runner-up to Woods in this event last year, finished on 138 while US Masters champion Zach Johnson (69) was on 139.
