Palm Beach Gardens, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Jim Furyk will be the final competitor in the PGA Grand Slam of Golf.

Furyk will join this year's three major champions -- Bubba Watson, Martin Kaymer and Rory McIlroy -- in the foursome that will compete in the 36-hole event to be held Oct. 13-15 at Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton, Bermuda.

Since McIlroy won both the British Open and PGA Championship, Adam Scott was initially invited to round out the field as the defending champion of the event. Scott, though, was unable to compete due to a scheduling conflict.

Furyk, the 2003 U.S. Open champion, was runner-up in this year's Major Champions Points List, which charts the performance throughout the year of active major champions.

"It's exciting to cap a great year in golf by matching a foursome of the game's premier performers over 36 holes," said PGA of America president Ted Bishop in a statement Wednesday. "The PGA Grand Slam of Golf is a reward for achieving a milestone in a golfer's career."

Furyk won the Grand Slam of Golf in 2003 and again in 2008.
