Price top alternate
on Grand Slam list

Two of the four spots for the 2002 PGA Grand Slam of Golf are set and the next two will be decided this weekend.

The $1 million tournament is scheduled for Nov. 26-27 at the Poipu Bay Resort Golf Course on Kauai.

Tiger Woods and Ernie Els qualified earlier this year by winning major tournaments. Woods won the Masters and the U.S. Open, while Els took the British Open.

The winner of this week's PGA Championship, the final major of the year, will also qualify.

Because Woods won two majors in 2002, the fourth qualifier will be chosen from an alternate list made up of former major winners. Those on the list are ranked in order of their combined finishes in this year's majors.

Nick Price tops the list heading into the PGA Championship, followed in order by Justin Leonard, Davis Love III, Retief Goosen, Nick Faldo, Bernhard Langer, Vijay Singh, Jose Maria Olazabal, Greg Norman and Mark O'Meara.
