: After reading your discription for grand slam, I have more to add. In the U.S. it is a term used in baseball. It means to clear the loaded bases with a home run hit.

: It's also a tasty breakfast at Denny's(TM)

The Grand Slam of Golf consists of the Masters, the U.S. Open, the British Open, and the PGA Championship and they must all be won in the same season to be considered a Grand Slam. I don't know much about golf, but I had heard that Tiger was somewhat miffed upon being told by Jack Nicklaus that winning 4 consecutive major tournaments do not count as a Grand Slam if they are not all won in the same season!
