Anyone could see McIlroy had the gifts to be the next big thing in golf. His victory in the PGA Championship was more about grit. That might be more impressive than some of the numbers associated with his latest major.

The tournament finished in near-darkness Sunday at Valhalla Golf Club, with the final two groups essentially morphing into a foursome as they raced to beat nightfall. A nearly two-hour rain delay set up the possibility of a Monday finish, especially if there had been a three-hole playoff.
