Anytime major championship winners gather on a golf course, fireworks are sure to follow. 

That's exactly the setting for the 2013 PGA Grand Slam of Golf, where Justin Rose has the lead following the first round in Bermuda after shooting a four-under 67 at Port Royal. 

The 2013 U.S. Open champion was in rare form Tuesday, but 2013 Masters champion Adam Scott, 2013 PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner and Padraig Harrington—the replacement for reigning British Open victor Phil Mickelson—all have a chance to add the trophy to their collection.

Harrington admitted to PGA.com's Josh Ball on Tuesday that he played "tired golf" on Day 1, and his three-over 74 was the most representative aspect of that admission. 

You could easily say that a lack of intensity doomed the defending champion on Day 1. As noted by the PGA.com Twitter account, Harrington knew coming into the tournament that he couldn't take any holes off:

Harrington is at the bottom of the pack and seven strokes off the pace set by the leader, so oddsmakers won't be excited about his chances of coming back to win the event after 36 holes. 

That being said, I think Harrington will make a run. 

Looking to just have fun on Wednesday will likely be his ultimate goal, and we all know how playing loose and free on the golf course can turn out. He won't win the tournament, but he will dazzle a few fans and not fret about his game in the process. 

 

Jason Dufner Gains More Fans

There's just something about Jason Dufner. 

With tweets like this from CBS Sports' Kyle Porter, maybe it's more obvious than some might think:

Whether or not you're a fan of Young Weezy, Dufner is a golfer you should be paying attention to right now. Sure, he's 36, but he'll be a Ryder Cup staple in the next two events, and he has a great chance of winning another major or two in that stretch. 

Oh, and there's that whole "Dufnering" thing.

It might not be bold, but those watching Dufner on Wednesday will either fall in love with his calm demeanor and smooth game or marvel at how he hits the golf ball with ease despite not having the typical "athletic" body. 

Either way, there's a good chance the American will gain a few more fans Wednesday afternoon. 

 

Justin Rose Wins It All

Justin Rose has had an outstanding 2013 season, finishing inside the top 10 at a number of marquee tournaments and winning the 2013 U.S. Open. 

He'll add a Grand Slam of Golf trophy to his mantle Thursday morning. 

Rose was far and away the best player on the course Tuesday, hitting a four-under 67 and leading Dufner by two strokes in the process. It might not be the grandest of stages, but Rose has certainly proved he can handle a moment like the one to follow on Wednesday. 

It's always nice to see all four major championship winners gather, and although Mickelson isn't around, this collection of talent is a treat to end the 2013 season and remind us of just how difficult the sport can be. 

Expect a fun, relaxed conclusion in the Bermudas and Rose to walk away with bragging rights over a star-studded field.
