Tiger Woods of the United States hits a shot on the ninth hole during Round One of the 94th PGA Championship at the Ocean Course on August 9, 2012 in Kiawah Island, South Carolina. (August 8, 2012 – Source: Jonathan Ferrey/Getty Images North America) KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — The breakthrough moment Thursday wasn’t just the sun shining over Kiawah Island. It was Carl Pettersson breaking 70 for the first time in 21 tries at the PGA Championship to take the lead, Rory McIlroy flashing that boyish smile and bashing tee shots. And yes, even John Daly showing there might be another cycle left in that up-and-down career. Pettersson, a winner earlier this year in South Carolina down the coast at Hilton Head, got the best of the weather on a steamy day on the Ocean Course and didn’t waste the opportunity. He made three birdies in four holes, never dropped a shot and wound up with a 6-under 66 for a one-shot lead. McIlroy, Gary Woodland, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano of Spain and Alex Noren of ...

Rory McIlroy Wins PGA Championship by Dominant Eight-Stroke Margin

Rory could be golf's new icon

Kiawah Island, S.C. -- He's a dozen majors behind, but Rory McIlroy is also one major closer to Tiger Woods than he was a week ago. And he is already drawing the inevitable comparisons.

McIlroy in contention at PGA Championship

Kiawah Island, S.C. - He isn't leading, but he might as well be. As Ernie Els said, "A one shot lead isn't really a lead, because a guy can birdie one hole and your lead is gone."

McIlroy is the first European in nearly 20 years to go into the Ryder Cup as the No. 1 player in the world, although the star power of this 23-year-old from Northern Ireland is defined by much more than a computer ranking. He already has won two majors, with a record score in the U.S. Open last...

Woods scrambles to stay in the hunt

For the first time in a dozen years, Tiger Woods has started three straight majors with a round in the 60s. Nothing less was going to suffice Thursday in the PGA Championship.
