Rory McIlroy celebrates his PGA Championship victory

Yahoo SportsAugust 11, 2014

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Rory McIlroy won this soggy SqueeGA Championship in the dark, dropping his final putt at 8:43 p.m. – one minute past sunset on a very long Sunday. He won his second consecutive major by playing hurry-up golf, joining the group in front of him off the 18th tee in one of the oddest endings to a major anyone has ever seen. He won his fourth career major with a lucky laser of a 3-wood on the 10th hole – a mishit that worked out and might have been the only shot all weekend to roll an appreciable distance at waterlogged Valhalla Golf Club.
