Yesterday, Sunday August 10, 2014 at just 25 years of age, Irish Pro Golfer, Rory McIlroy wins the 96th PGA Champioship in Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville.
For McIlroy this his fourth major win and third consecutive title. McIlroy dominated the first three days of play, firing rounds of 66-67-67, and came from behind to shoot a 68 on the final day of play for a 268 (-16). Today’s win is McIlroy’s second-consecutive major championship and his second PGA Championship. He won The Open Championship just three weeks ago and won the PGA Championship in 2011.
“This win means a lot,” said McIlroy on Sunday night. “It’s my fourth major championship, and my second major in a row, and has just ended what has been the most incredible summer.”
“It’s hard to really put into words what it means to me right now,” McIlroy added, “but I know that it’s one of the biggest tournaments of my career and it inspires me to keep going forward and to try and win more.”
Since 2013, Rory McIlroy has been a brand ambassador for Omega watches. After the trophy presentation, President of The PGA of America Ted Bishop presented McIlroy with the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m timepiece to commemorate his victory at Valhalla.
After receiving this important token of this landmark milestone, Rory McIlroy stated, “I’m not sure if I’ll wear it or not. “I might just put it in a trophy case so that every time I look at it, it will remind me of my win here at Valhalla.”
According to Omega President, Stephen Urquhart, “We congratulate Rory on his outstanding play at Valhalla and all that he has accomplished this year. In our fourth year as a partner and Official Timekeeper of the PGA of America, it is thrilling to see our own Omega Ambassador win at the 2014 PGA Championship.”
