Grand Slam field to be decided following PGA Championship

POIPU – The 2002 PGA Grand Slam of Golf has just two competitors – Masters and U.S. Open Champion Tiger Woods and British Open Champ Earnie Els – on its list with just three months until the competition tees off at Poipu Bay.

Not to worry, the other two will be decided at the end of this weekend.

The PGA Championship, currently in its practice rounds at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota, will take place from Thursday through Sunday. The winner of the fourth major tournament will be invited to the Grand Slam, which will take place November 26 and 27.

An alternate will be selected August 18 for the tourney, since Woods already won two of the four majors this year.

Currently, Nick Price, Justin Leonard and Davis Love III top the alternate list.
