2012 PGA Championship Winner: Rory McIlroy Cruises To Victory

Rory McIlroy cruised to victory on Sunday in the 2012 PGA Championship at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina. McIlroy finished 6-under-par on Sunday and 13-under for the tournament.

David Lynn was a distant second at 5-under for the tournament. Tiger Woods finished 2-under, tied for 11th place. Defending PGA Championship winner and Vermont native Keegan Bradley finished 4-under for the tournament and was among four players tied for third with that score.

The win was McIlroy's second in a major championship. He also won the 2011 U.S. Open. McIlroy's best finish in the PGA Championship before this year was third in 2009 and 2010. Like the 2011 U.S. Open win, McIlroy grew stronger as the tournament wore on and his dominating performance on the weekend gave him an undramatic victory.
