2012 PGA Championship Leaderboard Update: Rory McIlroy Continues To Increase His Lead

Rory McIlroy entered Sunday's final round at the 2012 PGA Championship with a three-stroke advantage over everyone else listed on the leaderboard. Twelve holes later, he's increased that lead to an impressive six strokes over his closest competition at Kiawah Island Resort.

McIlroy posted his fourth birdie of the day on 12, a 412-yard par-four, to increase his lead over the rest of the pack. At this point it looks like nobody will be able to catch him, though there is a rather large pack still in contention for second place.

Ian Poulter and Carl Pettersson are both five-under with three and six holes to go, respectively, while Keegan Bradley, Bo Van Pelt and Justin Rose make up part of a six-golfer contingency currently tied for fourth place.
