TUCKER'S TOWN, Bermuda, Oct. 16 (UPI) --
British Open champion Padraig Harrington
carded a 3-under 67 Tuesday to take a one-stroke lead after the first round of the PGA Grand Slam
U.S. Open champ Angel Cabrera is one shot back at 68, and Masters champ Zach Johnson and 2003 U.S. Open champ Jim Furyk are tied for third at 71.
PGA champion Tiger Woods declined his invitation and was replaced by Furyk, who led the Major Championship Points list. Furyk won this event the same year he won the U.S. Open.
"I was struggling with my game, so my head was very much down," Harrington said. "Every shot I was a bit worried. It was a tough day out there for me, and luckily, the putts were dropping and it kept me right in there."
