Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo octopus, Chelsea, has predicted
Adam Scott will win the 2013 PGA Grand Slam.

Adam Scott is to be the big winner of this year’s PGA Grand Slam - or so says Chelsea the octopus.

The Bermuda Aquarium Museum and Zoo resident selected him as the winner over Jason Dufner, Justin Rose and Padraig Harrington in the event now underway at Port Royal Golf Course.

“Chelsea, who resides at the Bermuda Aquarium Museum and Zoo, 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 spokeswoman.

“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.”
