    Southampton, Bermuda (SportsNetwork.com) - Propelled by an eagle at the par-5 17th, Masters champion Adam Scott rallied to overtake Justin Rose on Wednesday and win the PGA Grand Slam of Golf by two strokes.

    In addition to his go-ahead eagle on No. 17, Scott carded five birdies during his bogey-free, 7-under 64 at Port Royal Golf Course to overcome a 3-shot overnight deficit. The Australian finished 36 holes at 8-under-par 134 in his first appearance at the event, which brings together the year's four major champions.

    Rose held a 4-stroke lead through seven second-round holes, but the U.S. Open winner managed a pair of bogeys and nine pars the rest of the way en route to a 69 and a runner-up result at 6-under.

    PGA Champion Jason Dufner shot 70 and placed third at 3-under, while defending champion Padraig Harrington (71) finished last at 3-over 145. Harrington replaced Phil Mickelson in the field after the British Open champion withdrew due to a scheduling conflict.
