Rory McIlroy Wins the PGA Championship on Sunday

Rory McIlroy was able to overcome a front nine score of a 1-over-par, 36 and shoot an impressive 3-under-par 68 in the final round of the PGA Championship on Sunday to earn his fourth major championship of his career.  McIlroy began his round with a 1-shot lead but fell two shots back after bogeys on 3 and 6.  A birdie on the 7th, however, was his first and put some pop in his step.  After his eagle on the 10th, he punched the air with a clenched fist after a birdie on the 13th from nine feet gave him a share of the lead.  The birdie on the 17th gave him a 2-shot cushion going into eighteen.  He would have to hold off a field of notable names, with Phil Mickelson and Ricky Fowler being the closest of those names.

McIlroy two-putted from 35 feet on the final hole in near darkness to win his second Wanamaker Trophy.  Since breaking off his engagement with tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, he’s won four tournaments in eight starts.  And at 25 years, 3 months and 6 days, McIlroy became the third youngest to win four majors in the modern era, trailing just Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus.  Now only the green jacket remains for McIlroy to become the sixth player to win the career Grand Slam.
