McIlroy crushes the field for second major
Rory McIlroy took one step further in promising a new era in golf with his second major championship, after winning the PGA Championship on Kiawah Island Sunday.

What had been a close call before Sunday turned into a display of dominance as McIlroy shot a 13-under 275 to destroy the field. The young Ulsterman's closest rival was the little-heralded Englishman David Lynn, who was some margin back - a record-setting eight shots that harkened back to McIlroy's maiden major at Congressional last year.

"It was a great round of golf," he said. "The gameplan was just to play solid. I got off to a bit of a shaky start, but settled into it and I thought my putting today was phenomenal.

"Thanks dad and thanks mum - I'm sure she's watching at home. I had a good feeling at the start, but I never imagined doing this.

"It means an awful lot to look at the names on that trophy and put mine alongside them."

McIlroy played an unblemished final round, the only one from the top six placed golfers not to drop a shot, and finished off his round with the perfect coup de grace - a 25 footer for his sixth birdie of the round.

Already media have rushed to appoint McIlroy heir-apparent to fallen idol Tiger Woods, who yet again missed out on a major and will now have 8 long months before he can once more take a stab at Jack Nicklaus' major record that weighs him down like a millstone.
