Rory McIlroy won the PGA Championship by playing nearly perfect golf for the past 48 hours. He was amazing. His putt on 18 with nothing on the line just proved to me that he was in the zone. If he lined it up, the punt would go in. Great performance.
Maybe, just maybe, Rory McIlroy is finally ready for the throne.
There isn’t another major championship on the horizon for the next eight months, so there is plenty of time for debate, but the Age of McIlroy may have finally begun. Sorry, Tiger, you knew this day coming.
Northern Ireland’s McIlroy, 23, is the winner of the 94th PGA Championship here at the Ocean Course on Kiawah Island. He won in a rout, shooting 13-under 275 to beat runner-up David Lynn by a record eight shots in a victory reminiscent of McIlroy’s first major championship, an eight-shot win at the 2011 U.S. Open.
