    Rory McIlroy, of Northern Ireland, has won the second major title in four weeks after winning the US PGA Championship in dramatic fashion at Valhalla on Sunday.

    The World No 1 has now claimed three tournaments in a row and fourth major of his career, all by the age of 25.

    He finished the day, one stroke ahead of Phil Mickelson, with a final round three-under 68.

    Following this victory – McIlroy is now become the first golfer to win consecutive two major championships in the same year since Ireland’s Padraig Harrington in 2008.
