VIDEO EXCLUSIVE: PGA Grand Slam Champions Clinic

The big story from yesterday’s pro-am round at the PGA Grand Slam of Golf was the weather: Thick sheets of rain blanketed Port Royal golf course for the majority of the day making the informal, pre-tourney tournament all but impossible to complete. The good news is the rain held off long enough to capture all four champions demonstrating the shots that won them major titles in 2009 on Port Royal's 17th green. PGA champion Y.E. Yang recreated his chip-in from the fringe at the 14th hole in Hazeltine, where he upset Tiger Woods to become the first Asian golfer to win a major. Next, although he didn't find many bunkers while competing at Bethpage Black in June, U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover swung from the sand, a shot he’s remembered for holing at the Disney Classic where he won his first PGA Tour title in 2005. British Open champion Stewark Cink drained a fifteen-foot putt, reminiscent of his birdie on the 72nd hole at Turnberry, where he eventually won the Claret Jug in a playoff against golf legend Tom Watson. And finally, Masters Champion Angel Cabrera set up 95 yards from the pin demonstrating how to spin the pitching wedge, a precision short game he gave much credit to for winning him the green jacket in April.
