Rory McIlroy is once again the World No. 1, running away with his second major title at only 23 years old with a 8-stroke margin of victory in the PGA Championship.
Rory McIlroy won the 2012 PGA Championship at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina on Sunday.
McIlroy finished 13-under-par for the tournament and was 6-under on Sunday. Defending PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley finished his tournament at 4-under-par and was tied for third. David Lynn finished second at 5-under-par for the tournament. Tiger Woods was a distant finisher in a tie for 11th place, at 2-under-par.
McIlroy's win was his second major championship victory. McIlroy also won the 2011 U.S. Open. McIlroy secured a large victory in both tournaments by playing his best golf on the weekend. His eight-stroke victory in a PGA Championship is a new record, breaking that of Jack Nicklaus (7) in 1980.

Rory McIlroy took sole control of the lead at the PGA Championship when third round action resumed on Sunday. By contrast, Vijay Singh, who was tied with McIlroy for the lead when play was suspended on Saturday, fell down to sixth on the leaderboard due to a rough finish to the third round. He's currently tied for sixth place with a 2-under par score of 214.
And while on the subject of falling down, Tiger Woods had his worst round yet in the third round with a score of 74. He's actually regressed each day, so if that's any indication of what's to come on Sunday (what used to be his best day), then it doesn't look good for Woods finally winning that elusive 15th major.
Saturday's rain delay prevented the completion of the third round of the 2012 PGA Championships for many of tournament's competitors, including Rory McIlroy, Vijay Singh, and Tiger Woods. As a result, players who have not yet completed their round of golf will take to the course at 7:45 a.m. Eastern Time. Afterwards, the fourth and final round of play will begin at 11:44 a.m. and tee times will continue through 1:45, according to an official statement from the PGA of America Rules Committee. The golfers will be placed into groups of three for round four.
McIlroy and Singh are tied atop the leaderboard following strong starts to their third rounds. McIlroy is four-under through nine, while Singh is two-under through seven holes.
Tiger Woods, meanwhile, stumbled after a strong start, shooting a +3 through seven holes in round three. He fell from atop the leaderboard to an eight-way tie for 11th place.
TV coverage begins on TNT at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time and continues on CBS Sports at 2:00 p.m.
Jim Furykis recovering nicely from his second round 77 as he is 2-under par through 12 holes and 3-over par overall in the third round of the 2012 PGA Championship at The Ocean Course on Kiawah Island, SC.
Furyk was a bit inconsistent to start his round as he went birdie-bogey-birdie-bogey on holes two through six, but the West Chester, PA native finally moved to under par on the round when he birdied the 579 yard Par 5 seventh hole and made the turn with a 1-under 35.
Furyk moved to 2-under on the day with a birdie on the Par 5 11th and that's where he currently stands after recording a par on the 12th.
While Furyk still remains seven strokes behind co-leaders Carl Pettersson, Tiger Woods and Vigay Singh who all sit at 4-under par before they begin their third rounds, Furyk has quietly moved up 14 positions on the leaderboard and can set himself up for a Top 20 finish on Sunday.

Round 2 of the 2012 PGA Championship concluded Friday with Tiger Woods in a three way tie for first place, sitting at the top of the leaderboard with Vijay Singh and Carl Pettersson. West Chester, Penn. native Jim Furyk was 5-over on the day and slid 12 places in the rankings to settle in a tie for 57th.
Singh shot the low round of the day, moving in to first with a 3-under 69. Woods failed to improve on Thursday's 3-under, shooting just 1-under par.

Pettersson was 6-under after Thursday's 64, but a 2-over 74 left him sharing the lead with Woods and Singh.
Furyk is likely to make the cut, so he'll have a chance to improve his standing as the weekend continues. For a live leaderboard, head over to Golf.com.

Ken Duke and Carl Pettersson are tied for the lead at 4-under, having completed 12 and eight holes respectively.
Furyk started off with a birdie on the tenth hole, and hit par on the next three before two birdies. He ran into trouble on the 16th when he double bogeyed. He was two strokes over on the 18th hole as well, and needs a strong showing on the front nine to climb the leadboard on the first day.
Tiger Woods is 1-under after nine holes. Ditto Keegan Bradley, the defending champion.

On Thursday, the Ocean Course on Kiawah Island is the setting for the 94th PGA Championship. If the fourth and final major of the year is anything like the first three, sit back and enjoy the show.
Here are a few men to watch closely as favorites this week to earn glory.
Tiger Woods is usually a prime candidate to win. Big surprise, he is once again. Woods is the favorite of many fans and experts to win despite not having come through in recent majors.
Farrell Evans of ESPN.com feels Woods' time has come to break out of his majors funk.
Jim Furyk is a man who has been so close, yet so far in recent times. Unfortunately, nobody can forget the meltdown he suffered in the U.S. Open earlier this summer. Although, being so close shows that the West Chester, PA native is in the hunt and still someone to be reckoned with. Bob Harig of ESPN thinks Furyk will break through this weekend.
Rory McIlroy is a top talent, but that goes without saying. He hasn't enjoyed the massive success some expected this year, but he's put together a fine year. He's expected to be in the fray, listed as a 10/3 favorite by multiple books.
Jason Dufner is perhaps the most underrated player in the field by the general public. He's been a top-performer this campaign and could make waves this weekend. He's a bold prediction of many including Chris Dunham, Ryan Smithson and Brian Wacker of PGATour.com.
The 2012 PGA Championship will begin in a few day, and already oddsmakers at Bovada have released its favorite to win the final major of the year. Not shocking to anybody, Tiger Woods, a four-time winner of the event, has the best betting odds at 7-4.
Right behind Woods is Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy and England's Luke Donald, who each have 10-3 odds to win at the he Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina.
Not far behind the favorites, is West Chester, Pa., native Jim Furyk who has line of 10-1 to earn his first PGA Championship crown. Furyk is coming off a runner-up finish to defending champion Keegan Bradley (8-1) at the Firestone CC.
Another local player with decent odds is West Chester, Pa. resident Sean O'Hair, who's a 25-1 favorite. Meanwhile, Penn State alum Daniel Balin has 150-1 odds.
Here's a rundown of the tournament's top favorites.
Tiger Woods - 7/4
