What Happened at the 2014 PGA Championship

Rory McIlroy started the final round with a one-stroke lead, but bogeys on two of his first six holes dropped him behind charging Rickie Fowler, Phil Mickelson and Henrik Stenson. McIlroy climbed back with an eagle on the 10th hole and added birdies on 13 and 17, after which he was back in front by two strokes.

Then he had to rush to beat darkness. The final round ended in near total darkness after a lengthy rain delay earlier in the round. McIlroy, playing in the final pairing, he hit his tee shot on the final hole while the pairing ahead, Mickelson and Fowler, was still in the fairway; then played his second shot to the green while the duo ahead waited at the back the green. But the rush job worked: Everyone finished, preventing the tournament's extension into Monday. And when it was over, McIlroy had won his second PGA Championship title.

This was McIlroy's third consecutive win on the PGA Tour, his second straight win in a major (he won the 2014 British Open three weeks prior), his second overall win in the PGA Championship and fourth overall win in majors.

Mickelson finished in second place, one stroke behind McIlroy. It was Mickelson's second runner-up finish in a PGA Championship and his ninth overall second-place finish in a major. Fowler, who ended up in third place, finished in the Top 5 at all four majors in 2014, joining Tiger Woods (2000, 2005) and Jack Nicklaus (1971, 1973) as the only golfers to this point to finish Top 5 in all four professional majors in a calendar year.
