2012 PGA Championship Leaderboard Update: Rory McIlroy On His Way To Win

The 2012 PGA Championship has just two holes left and, provided there's not some sort of monumentally-epic collapse, Rory McIlroy will be the winner. Despite shooting a 75 on Friday, the Northern Ireland native finished the 16th hole with another birdie to extend himself a seven-stroke advantage over the rest of the leaderboard.

If McIlroy is able to stay seven strokes ahead of Englishman David Lynn, the golfer currently in second place as he headed to the clubhouse at five-under par, he'll tie Jack Nicklaus for the largest margin of victory in the history of the PGA Championship.

Behind McIlroy and Lynn, there's a four-way tie for third place that includes Justin Rose, Keegan Bradley and Ian Poulter -- all of which are done golfing for the tournament -- as well as Carl Pettersson, who has three holes remaining on the day.
