Padraig Harrington will get a chance to defend his title at the PGA Grand Slam of Golf after Phil Mickelson withdrew from the event on Tuesday.

It will mark the fourth appearance by Harrington in the four-man tournament, which matches the year's four major champions. Harrington, who won last year after runner-up finishes in 2007 and '08, will be joined in the field by Masters champion Adam Scott, U.S. Open winner Justin Rose and PGA champion Jason Dufner. Harrington won the 2007 and '08 Open Championships and the 2008 PGA.

Mickelson, who won the Open Championship last month at Muirfield, Scotland, cited an "end-of-season scheduling conflict" for pulling out of the Grand Slam, according to the PGA of America.

The event is set for Oct. 14-16 at Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton, Bermuda.
