Padraig Harrington survives a late challenge from Webb Simpson to win the Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda.

Padraig Harrington has won the Grand Slam of Golf by one shot from Webb Simpson in Bermuda.

The Irishman was not scheduled to compete in the tournament but replacing the injured Ernie Els gave him the opportunity to lift the trophy at the third time of asking.

A run of three consecutive birdies on the back nine saw Harrington pull away from the field and despite a late rally from Simpson, the three-time major champion held firm to emerge victorious.

Keegan Bradley hit a 67 on Thursday but his disappointing display on the first day means he finished tied for third place with Bubba Watson.

Harrington: -9
Simpson: -8
Bradley: -3
Watson: -3
