Spot on: Chelsea, the octopus at the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo,
correctly predicts Adam Scott's victory in the PGA Grand Slam of Golf.

Chelsea the Octopus correctly predicted Adam Scott as the winner of the PGA Grand Slam yesterday morning.

The octopus also pinpointed Justin Rose as finishing second, according to the Bermuda Aquarium Museum and Zoo.

“Chelsea was presented with four boxes, each featuring the name and photo of the four champions playing in the 2013 PGA Grand Slam, which is being played at Port Royal Golf Course, as well as a single shrimp,” said a BAMZ spokesperson.

“When the box, which is typically used as an enrichment tool, was presented, Chelsea quickly crawled over, put a tentacle in and grabbed a shrimp. The first one she reached for was that of Adam Scott, followed by Justin Rose, Padraig Harrington and then Jason Dufner, all in quick succession.”
