The *2012 PGA Championship* was the 94th PGA Championship, played August
9–12 at the Ocean Course of the Kiawah Island Golf Resort in Kiawah
Island, South Carolina, southwest of Charleston. Rory McIlroy shot a
bogey-free 66 (−6) in the final round to win his second major title by
eight strokes over runner-up David Lynn.^[1]^[2]

The victory margin was a record for the PGA Championship, surpassing the
seven-stroke win in 1980 by Jack Nicklaus for his fifth PGA and seventeenth
major title. The winner of the U.S. Open in 2011, also by eight strokes,
McIlroy became the sixth-youngest winner of two majors at 23 years and 3
months.^[3]^[4]^[5]

Television coverage was provided in the United States by CBS and TNT, and
in the United Kingdom by Sky Sports.

It was the first major championship at Kiawah Island; the Ocean Course
hosted the Ryder Cup in 1991.
