2012 PGA Championship

 

The 2012 PGA Championship marked the 94th time the tournament was played, and it was the site of Rory McIlroy's second major championship win.

Winner: Rory McIlroy, 275

Where it was played: Kiawah Island Resort (The Ocean Course), Kiawah Island, South Carolina

Tournament dates: August 9-12, 2012

Leader after first round: Carl Pettersson, 66

Leader after second round: Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh and Carl Pettersson, 140

Leader after third round: Rory McIlroy, 209

Notable Notes: Rory McIlroy won his second major championship at this tournament, and just like at his first - the 2011 U.S. Open - McIlroy won by eight strokes.

McIlroy was two strokes behind at the midway mark, but by the end of the third round held a 3-stroke lead. But a final-round 66 pushed him well out front of the field. The 8-stroke margin of victory was a new PGA Championship tournament record.
