PGA Championship 2014: Leaderboard Results, Highlights and Purse Payouts
Mike Groll/Associated Press

After one of the most thrilling final rounds in recent major championship history, world No. 1 Rory McIlroy proved why he is considered the best player in the world.

On the strength of a five-under 66, McIlroy won the 2014 PGA Championship. It was his third-straight tournament win and the fourth major championship of his career. 

Here's a look at the final leaderboard.

McIlroy made several big shots over the four days at Valhalla Golf Course in Louisville, Kentucky, but his eagle on the 10th hole was probably the biggest.

After two bogeys on the front nine, McIlroy needed something big to put himself back in the hunt, with Rickie Fowler, Phil Mickelson and Henrik Stenson playing well.

Clutch play hasn't always been associated with McIlroy, but after two-straight performances where he had to stare down elite competition on the final day, it's quickly becoming part of the 25-year-old's MO.

Last week, McIlroy turned back a red-hot Sergio Garcia on the final day to win the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.

McIlroy's latest exhibition of skill and poise netted him $1.8 million. Here's a look at the total pay out, per ESPN.com:

Maybe Next Year

Jeff Roberson/Associated Press

You can't play much better in majors than Fowler has this year and not win one. Fowler finished in the top five in all four of the year's biggest tournaments, but he couldn't get over the hump.

On Sunday, he shot a three-under 68, but that wasn't good enough to catch McIlroy.

Fowler has clearly turned the corner in his career, and he seemingly is looking forward to continuing his rivalry with McIlroy for years to come.

If the two can produce more action like the fast-paced and competitive climax to the PGA Championship, bring it on.

 

Good Job, Good Effort

Mickelson and Stenson did their best to keep pace with the youngsters. In the end, even the grizzled veterans had to bow down to the hottest player in the game.

At 44 years old, Mickelson still has to feel good about the way he played. On most days, his five-under 66 would have been good enough to win. However, McIlroy made sure Sunday wasn't like most days.

Stenson looked rock-solid most of the day, but his bogey on the 14th hole hurt. He looked out of sorts the rest of the way and couldn't come up with the birdie he needed in the final four holes to apply more pressure to McIlroy.

As of now, he has to be considered one of, if not the best golfers in the world without a major championship.
