The 2014 PGA Championship’s final round on Sunday was everything golf fans could have hoped for in terms of entertainment, big names in contention and dramatics at Valhalla Golf Club.
Rory McIlroy entered with a one-stroke lead, but soft conditions, which caused play to be suspended earlier in the day, allowed stars such as Rickie Fowler, Phil Mickelson and Henrik Stenson to fire at flags, chase down and eclipse McIlroy multiple times.
However, it was McIlroy who would come from behind and win his second Wanamaker Trophy at the PGA Championship.
As the PGA’s Ted Bishop handed the giant-ass trophy to Rory, the lid fell off and McIlroy caught it. Now he can go fill it with golf balls or beer or whatever he wants.
McIlroy is already a Hall of Famer with what he’s achieved to date, though if his mindset of late is any indication, he is far from done. The most exciting aspect to McIlroy’s fourth major is that his ceiling has yet to be determined. There may be a new superstar making his case as the greatest of all time.
