The PGA Tour leaderboard from the 2014 Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda has U.S. Open champion Martin Kaymer in the early lead and things pick up live from Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton on Tuesday and Wednesday as Rory McIlroy, Kaymer, Jim Furyk and Bubba Watson all are in action and they are looking to split over $1 million with a win and live stream TV coverage is from TNT.
McIlroy comes in after a very strong year and the Euros come in after winning the Ryder Cup again. McIlroy has been the best player in the world this year and he comes in after winning two majors and he has the chance to add another line to his resume from this season. Adam Scott is not playing after winning last year, but the field is filled with big names and while Woods and others are not there, McIlroy has the star power as the top golfer in the world right now.
The players will compete in a 36-hole stroke play contest for the win and the lowest score over the two rounds will be the winner. Watson has played in a ton of big tournaments over the past few years, winning the Masters this year and he comes in after tying for third in 2012 and he has the chance to win it. Watson played in the Ryder Cup for the Us and while the team is dealing with some turmoil, they are looking to improve and come out of it better.
Watson made it in after winning the Masters and while he did not play all that well in the other majors, he has the chance to come in and do something special. Watson played against Kaymer in the Ryder Cup and he has been off to a good start, taking the early lead in the tournament. Kaymer was strong with an eagles and a drive to the green on the 10th hole to take a two shot lead over Watson.
Kaymer set a 6-under 65 and McIlroy came in after starting off well and he had two bad putt shots later and ended up at 69. Furyk was seven shots back and he comes in as the alternate and the final round will be on Wednesday. Kaymer came in with a two shot lead at the turn over McIlroy and the star fell back with the bogeys and Kaymer was able to finish out.
