Rory McIlroy cruised to an easy win at the 2012 PGA Championship, lapping the field and finishing at 13-under for the tournament. With the win, McIlroy earned a seven-figure payday, nearly doubling up the prize money for second place. Everyone in the top-18 earned six-figures, but the real winner was McIlroy, both in an earnings sense and a literal one.
After a solid first two days, Noted Golf Enthusiast Tiger Woods finished well off the pace, ending his tournament at 2-under. He struggled throughout the weekend, finishing in a tie for 11th place with a whole host of people, 11 shots off the pace.
