2012 PGA Championship Winner: Rory McIlroy Wins By Eight Strokes

Rory McIlroy captured his second ever major title, winning the 2012 PGA Championship by eight strokes.

McIlroy entered the final round with a three shot lead at seven-under and then exploded with a stellar Sunday, finishing the tourney at 13-under-par after a six-under round on Sunday.

He faced some stiff opposition from Ian Poulter, who began the final round at one-under but after birding the first five holes, had pulled within two strokes of the lead.

On the back nine however, McIlroy would pull away and end up winning by a large margin, much like his U.S. Open victory in 2011.

Tiger Woods finished the day well out of contention at two-under-par, 11 strokes behind McIlroy. Woods failed to shoot under par in both of his rounds on the weekend.

PGA Championship 2012 Leaderboard: Rory McIlroy Leads By Two Strokes

Rory McIlroy continues to remain steady, as he remains at the top of the leaderboard of the 2012 PGA Championship as his round approaches the halfway mark.

McIlroy currently sits at 10-under-par through his first nine holes, as he is shooting three-under during his final round. Ian Poulter continues to be hot on his heels, as he is now at eight-under after beginning his day at one-under. He is currently through 12 holes, so there is still time to improve on his incredible final round.

As for Tiger Woods, he is shooting two-under through 10 holes, but he has not been able to catch fire like those atop the leaderboard. He is still six strokes off of the lead and will need a miracle to bring home the title.

PGA Championship 2012 Leaderboard: Rory McIlroy Still Leads As Ian Poulter And Tiger Woods Chase Leader

The final round of the 2012 PGA Championship is underway, and Rory McIlroy still has the lead at nine-under through three holes, although the gap between him and the field has closed.

Rory has birdies two of his first three holes and looks to be picking up where he left off following a five-under round three.

Ian Poulter birdied the first five holes during his final round to bring his score for the tournament to six-under. Given how McIlroy has been playing, Poulter is most likely going to need some help to pull out the win.

Tiger Woods was able to birdie hole two, but he hasn't been able to make up much more ground, as he sits at three-under through four holes.

Coverage of the tournament is currently airing on CBS.

PGA Championship 2012: Storm Halts Play, Third Round To Resume Sunday

Third-round play at the 94th PGA Championship on Saturday was suspended due to rain, which hit The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, S.C. just as overnight leader Tiger Woods began sliding.

Though sharing the 36-hole lead on Friday, Woods found himself five shots behind the leader and facing a 6-foot par putt on the eighth hole just as sirens ran, halting play.

The leader now becomes Rory McIlroy and Vijay Singh, who are at 6-under-par through nine and seven holes respectively. McIlroy was amid a steady climb Saturday, at 4-under, before the stoppage.

Third-round play will resume on Sunday at 7:45 a.m. The fourth and final round of the tournament is scheduled to begin at 11:44 a.m. with the last group of the day to tee off at about 1:45 p.m. Twenty-six players didn't finish the round and all will be returning Sunday.

PGA Championship Leaderboard: Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh Share Lead As Cut Is Made At Kiawah

The second round of the 2012 PGA Championship is in the books, with the afternoon wave finishing up their rounds just as the sun set over picturesque Kiawah Island on the Carolina coast. At the halfway point, some familiar names are atop the leaderboard, with former Wanamaker winners Vijay Singh and Tiger Woods at 4-under. Matching them at 4-under is Carl Pettersson, the American Tour veteran who's looking capture his first major in what could be the swan song for his belly putter.

The wind was up on Friday at Kiawah, creating dramatically different scoring conditions from the gettable track on Thursday. Tiger took advantage of the high numbers, holding the line and firing a 71 to move up the board amid the surrounding carnage. Woods, who struggled with his putter last week at Firestone, was hitting all his putts at Pete Dye's paspalum masterpiece. The game's most famous player has become fairly reliant on his cut shot, almost exclusively playing the ball left to right but he managed to work it through the wind to fire one of the rare rounds under par. Woods bogeyed the last to drop a shot and fall back into the three-way tie.

Singh, the game's ultimate grinder and workhorse, carded a remarkable 69 in the blustery conditions. His 3-under mark was the low round of the day and positioned him perfectly for the weekend. As is typically the case with Singh, he'll need to come through with the flatstick to stay around.

Among the notables to miss the cut were U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson, Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III, Sergio Garcia, and Lee Westwood, who continued his disappointing season at the majors. Matt Kuchar, Rickie Fowler, and Hunter Mahan were three Americans who all came into the week looking to improve their Ryder Cup position. All three are going home after just two rounds. Kuchar is just inside the top eight, with Mahan remarkably just outside the automatic points qualifying list.

PGA Championship Leaderboard Update: Second Round Brutal To D.C. Golfers

To say the second round of the PGA Championship at Kiawah Island Resort in South Carolina has not been kind to golfers from the Washington, D.C. area would be an understatement. The best second round score by a golfer from the D.C. area is from Virginia Beach, Va. resident Marc Leishman, who is currently even through 13 holes in the second round and is shooting two-over for the tournament.

Brandon de Jong, who graduated from Virginia Tech, entered the second round at one-under. He collapsed with a six-over, putting his tournament score at five-over. John Rollins, born in Richmond, Va. and went to Virginia Commonwealth University, entered the day even on the tournament, but imploded with a 10-over 82. Other D.C. area golfers, including Daniel Balin of Rockville, Md. and Virginia Tech graduate Johnson Wagner are both over for the tournament by double digit strokes.

The leaders of the tournament, including current leader Carl Pettersson of Sweden, will tee off after 1:40 p.m. later on Friday.

2012 PGA Championship Update: Carl Pettersson Leads At 6-Under, Tiger Woods Trails By 3

The 2012 PGA Championship is well underway at the Kiawah Island Resort in South Carolina on Thursday afternoon. At the top of the leaderboard is a surprising name. Carl Pettersson from Sweden is on top of the leaderboard at the PGA Championship after shooting a six-under 66.

Pettersson came off the first tee on fire, birdying three of the first four holes. Though he only shot two more birdies the rest of the round, it was enough to give him a one stroke lead over Gary Woodland of the United States and Rory McIlroy of England who both shot five-under 67s.

Tiger Woods had a very up and down first round. After trading birdies and bogeys over four holes, Woods birdied four holes, three on the front-nine despite another bogey and finished with a three-under 69, three strokes behind Pettersson.

Other golfers from the D.C. area include Brandon de Jonge, out of Zimbabwe but went to college at Virginia Tech, standing at one-under through nine holes. Rockville, Md.'s Daniel Balin is currently two-over through nine holes.

PGA Championship 2012: TV Schedule, Live Streaming For Thursday

Golf returns on Thursday when the 2012 PGA Championship gets underway on the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island in South Carolina. This is the last major golf tournament of the year, and promises to provide at least as much excitement as this season's other major tournaments.

This time around, he will have to hold off Tiger Woods, who enters the weekend as the favorite of odds makers to win. The two players are grouped together for the first round of play on Thursday.

Play starts at 7:20 a.m. Eastern on Thursday when the first group tees off. Bradley, Woods and Martin Kaymer tee off at 8:30 a.m.

The TNT Network will carry first round action from 1-7 p.m. ET on Thursday. You can also watch online via PGA.com.

PGA Championship Odds 2012: Tiger Woods Once Again Installed As The Favorite

The season's final major gets underway in two days from scenic Kiawah Island, and the world's No. 2 ranked player will look to end his majors drought at "glory's last shot." Tiger Woods enters the week at The Ocean Course after a pedestrian showing at Firestone last week, but he caught fire on Sunday by throwing darts at a soft course. His shot-shaping ability will truly be tested on this Pete Dye classic, with the wind constantly changing and impacting shots on nine holes that go eastward and nine holes that run westward.

Tiger has settled into hitting a cut shot, something that could get dicey when the wind blows left to right. But Woods is in much better form entering the PGA Championship than he has been the previous two years. He had just started working with Sean Foley at Whistling Straits in 2010 and last year he was coming off an injury that kept him out most of the summer. This year he enters atop the FedEx Cup Standings and the money list with three wins under his belt. That form makes him the clear favorite entering the week:

Tiger Woods 8/1
Rory McIlroy 18/1
Luke Donald 18/1
Lee Westwood 20/1
Adam Scott 28/1
Jason Dufner 28/1
Justin Rose 28/1
