Rory McIlroy - (Northern Ireland) US PGA Championship Kiawah Island - South Carolina - USA - 9th to 12th August, 2012 Rory McIlroy surged back to the top of the World Golf Rankings after a record breaking eight stroke victory at the US PGA Championship. On a week where Kiawah Island’s Ocean Course yielded few birdies, and a encouraged numerous mistakes, McIlroy was imperious throughout. Despite very strong winds and weather delays across the four days he hung tough and romped clear. Ian Poulter had looked like challenging on the final day after six birdies in his first seven holes to get within two, but the 23-year old Northern Irishman did not let this phase him. As Poulter fell away on the back nine, McIlroy increased his advantage further. Justin Rose and defending champion Keegan Bradley also went well on the Sunday to finish alongside Poulter in a tie for third, but David Lynn proved the real surprise package, shooting a final round 68 to finish alone in second on five under par. McIlroy first earned the World Number One ranking earlier in the year after his Honda Classic victory on the PGA Tour, but ten weeks after being dethroned by Luke Donald, he found himself back on top once more.
