Louisville, Kentucky: Rory McIlroy seized the most satisfying major victory of his career Sunday at the PGA Championship, battling from behind against top rivals to put himself on an unimagined golf level. (Pics)
McIlroy, three strokes down at the turn after leading by one after 54-holes, eagled the par-5 10th and added two clutch birdies to overtake Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler at rain-drenched Valhalla for his fourth major triumph.
"It is the most satisfying," McIlroy said. "To win it in this fashion and this style, it means a lot. It means that I know that I can do it, I know that I can come-from-behind. I know that I can mix it up with the best players in the world down the stretch in a major and come out on top." (After split with Wozniacki, McIlroy begins his true romance with golf)
