Rory McIlroy Wins PGA Championship: PGA Golf Tournament Update

Well after an eventful weekend, I am sure everyone saw the PGA Championship that was held at the Valhalla Golf Club, Louisville, Kentucky.  It was definetly worth watching,  and to see Rory McIlroy start with the lead, lose the lead, and finish off taking the win with another major at only the age 25.  He is only one of four players in the last century to achieve this along side, Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, and Bobby Jones. Neck and neck, during the heat of the tournament were Phil Mickelson, Rickie Fowler, and Henrik Stenson who all took part in the lead on the back nine.  Rory really had to work for his win, which made it all worth it in the end when he stole the lead and won by 2 under Phil Mickleson. “It is the most satisfying,” McIlroy said. “To win it in this fashion and this style, it means a lot. It means that I know that I can do it. I know that I can come from behind. I know that I can mix it up with the best players in the world down the stretch in a major and come out on top.”(Mercurynews.Com) (img src BostonGlobe.Com) News Notes from MercuryNews.Com: “The final par — the easiest shot he faced all day — gave McIlroy a 3-under 68 to outlast Mickelson by a stroke and beat the darkness that threatened to spoil this show. He became only the fourth player in the last century to win four majors at 25 or younger. The others were Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Bobby Jones, three of the game’s greatest players. Boy Wonder appears on his way to belonging in that group. “I didn’t think in my wildest dreams I’d have a summer like this,” said McIlroy, only the seventh player to win the last two majors of the year. “I played the best golf of my life. I really gutted it out today.” He finished at 16-under 268, the lowest score to win the PGA in 13 years. But one of the greatest shows on soggy turf came with a most peculiar ending. Three shots behind as he stood in the 10th fairway, McIlroy got back in the game with a 3-wood from 281 yards into 7 feet for eagle. He took the outright lead when all three of his challengers eventually made bogey, and finally gave himself some breathing room. With a 9-iron from a fairway bunker to 10 feet for birdie on the 17th, he took a two-shot lead going to the par-5 closing hole. Because of a two-hour rain delay earlier, darkness was falling...
