Pink Is the New Green
By Stephanie Wei under General

You may have missed it, but the PGA Grand Slam of Golf took place this week — where the champions from this year’s majors vie for the distinguished Pink Jacket and a million bucks in Bermuda. So, you know, it’s a post-season exhibition match that also gives them some extra cash.

While playing with a brand new set of irons at this very serious, very prestigious tournament, US Open champion Lucas Glover collected the Pink Jacket and $600,000. Next came Masters winner Angel Cabrera, who was awarded $300,000. British Open winner Stewart Cink earned $250,000 and PGA Champion Y.E. Yang, who played half-asleep, won a measly $200,000.

Q. Do you think you’ll wear that pink jacket very much?
LUCAS GLOVER: Tonight, for sure, and if y’all will send me some of those socks, make [sic] Easter next year. [ASAP Sports]
