(Louisville, KY) -- Rory McIlroy overcame a rough start of two bogeys on the front nine and darkness on 18 to close out the 96th PGA Championship from Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville.  He ended 16-under-par for the tournament with a minus-three in the fourth round.

It's his second straight major win and the fourth of his career. Phil Mickelson shot a five-under on Sunday to finish one stroke back at -15. Henrik Stenson and Rickie Fowler tied for third at 14-under.
