2012 PGA Championship Purse: Rory McIlroy's Seven-Figure Payday

Rory McIlroy closed out the 2012 PGA Championship in stunning fashion on Sunday. He finished the tournament at 13-under par and eight strokes ahead of David Lynn, who took second place, finishing at 5-under par. McIlroy shot a bogey-free round of golf to win on the tournament's final day, taking home the Wanamaker Trophy.
