In the Pink in Bermuda

By shooting 64 (a new course record) at Port Royal Golf Course yesterday in the second round of the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, Adam Scott won $600,000 (a nice paycheck for 36 holes), honorary membership at the course, and a pink jacket to go with the green one he earned at Augusta last April. Despite inclement weather, TV viewers were treated to an eyeful of this gorgeous public-access facility. While not long at 6,842 yards, the rolling, windswept design gave this year’s major champions (with Padraig Harrington subbing for Phil Mickelson) plenty of tussle, notably at the par-three 16th, Port Royal’s postcard hole (above). Recently stretched to 235 yards from the tips in the wake of a recent $14.5 million refurbishment, the target here is a narrow, well-bunkered peninsular green that clings to a shelf above the turquoise-blue sea. Scott parred 16 and eagled the par-five 17th to close the door on runner-up Justin Rose. The smart money says that Scott, if he keeps draining putts with his broomstick, will be back to defend his title in 2014.
