Great win by McIlroy at the PGA Championship. The North of Ireland has produced some great golfers so maybe it's time for Stormont to designate golf as the "national" sport.
http//m.rte.ie/sport/touch/golf//2014/0810/636298-us-pga/Rory McIlroy claimed his second major title in four weeks and a third win in succession in a thrilling, weather-affected climax to the US PGA Championship on Sunday.
McIlroy carded a closing 68 at Valhalla to finish 16 under par, one shot ahead of Phil Mickelson after a remarkable final day which finished in near-darkness, with the lights blazing from the clubhouse behind the 18th green.
Rickie Fowler and Henrik Stenson had been part of a three-way tie for the lead with Mickelson on the back nine but dropped shots on the closing stretch to finish two behind McIlroy on 14 under.
