Video: Highlights from Rory's latest romp at the PGA

By Alex Myers

Rory McIlroy ran away from the field at Kiawah's Ocean Course to win the 94th PGA Championship by eight shots. The result broke Jack Nicklaus' tournament record for margin of victory and gave the 23-year-old a second major title in blowout fashion.

McIlroy entered Sunday's final round with a three-shot lead, but after scrambling from wood chips to make a birdie on the par-5 second and following that up with a birdie on No. 3, there was never much drama. He closed with a bogey-free 66.

Here are the highlights of the final round that include Tiger Woods stalling again at a major and Ian Poulter making an incredible charge up the leader board early:

McIlroy is the youngest player since Seve Ballesteros to get to two major titles and he joins a small group of golfers that includes Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and Gene Sarazen to win multiple majors before turning 24.

The man from Northern Ireland also ascended back to the top spot in the Official World Golf Rankings. After this latest dominant performance, something tells us there aren't going to be many people objecting to that.
