PGA Championship 2012 Winner: Rory McIlroy Smokes Field To Win By 8 Strokes

No one has had a bigger win at the PGA Championship than Rory McIlroy who broke Jack Nicklaus' record for largest margin of victory in a PGA Championship event, defeating the field by eight strokes and a final score of 13-under-par.

The only person who came close to challenging McIlroy was Ian Poulter who birdied the first five holes, but then faded down the stretch while McIlroy exploded ahead of the pack.

McIlroy only needed 24 putts to complete the final 18 holes, a telling stat of how dominant he was on Sunday.

Tiger Woods couldn't come close to matching McIlroy on Sunday, as his score for the tournament ended up being two-under-par, 11 strokes off of the lead.

This is McIlroy's second-career major, as he also has won the 2011 U.S. Open.

2012 PGA Championship Leaderboard: Tiger Woods In Tournament Top 10

After 10 holes, tournament favorite Tiger Woods has earned himself a spot in the top 10 at two strokes under par. After a pair of bogeys early in his round on Thursday that dropped him to one over par, a pair of birdies have got Woods back on track.

In his grouping is the defending champion of the PGA Championship, Keegan Bradley, who is coming off a win in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in the weekend prior. Bradley started with a birdie and an eagle in his first two holes of the tournament, but has since slowed at one under par through 10 holes.

Leading the tournament early is Joost Luiten of Netherlands, who is five under par through his first seven holes of the tournament.
