2012 PGA Championship Purse: Rory McIlroy Claims Top Prize

Here's what the top-ten prize money breakdown looks like. As a reminder, prize money for ties is determined by pooling the money, then splitting it equal ways amongst the competitors.

Rory McIlroy finished in first place and received the main prize money with over $1,445,000. David Lynn finished second and ended up with $865,000.

Carl Pettersson, Justin Rose, Keegan Bradley and Ian Poulter earned $384,500 in a tie for third. Blake Adams, Jamie Donaldson, Peter Hanson & Steve Stricker ended up making $226,000 in a tie for seventh.

Sadly, it looks as if no Seattle-type golfers came up with no prizes at all. Ben Crane, Corey Prugh, Jeff Coston, Kyle Stanley and Ryan Moore all ended up missing the cut. None of them ended up earning any prize money.

The full leaderboard recap can be found here. A breakdown of the rest of the purse -- without ties -- can be found here.

PGA Championship Results: Rory McIlroy Wins, Shoots -13 Overall

The 2012 PGA Championship was completely dominated by the young Rory McIlroy, cruising to a major championship on Sunday afternoon. He broke Jack Nicklaus' record for the largest stroke lead to win a major as he shot a -13, defeating David Lynn (-5) and the rest of the field by eight strokes.

McIlroy shot a -6 on Sunday, tied for the best mark of anyone in the tournament on Sunday afternoon. The win marks the second major championship win of his short career. He will undoubtably remain No. 1 player in the world throughout the rest of the year.

Tiger Woods did not finish the Championship strong, shooting an even par-72 on Sunday. He finished tied for 11th place at -2, although Tiger would say he expected more of himself after a strong start in the earlier rounds.

Justin Rose, Keegan Bradley, Ian Poulter and Carl Pettersson all tied for third place at -4 overall. Phil Mickelson placed 36th after shooting a +3.

2012 PGA Championship, Leaderboard Update: Rory McIlroy Starts Strong, Ian Poulter Making Charge

As the final round of the 2012 PGA Championship is getting underway, Englishman Ian Poulter is making a strong charge up the leaderboard on Sunday. But leader Rory McIlroy maintains a three shot lead at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island.

Currently sitting at 5-under for the day after six holes played, Poulter has moved himself to 6-under for the tournament. As for McIlroy, who just got underway, he's maintaining his lead after a great start of two-under par after three holes.

Peter Hansen, Adam Scott and Bo Van Pelt are all tied for third at the moment at 4-under for the week.

As for Tiger Woods, he is one-under for the day as well, five holes into his final round. He'll need to get hot in a hurry if he wants to claim the Wannamaker for the fifth time.

Full leaderboard can be found here.

2012 PGA Championship: TV Schedule, How To Watch Online And More

The 2012 PGA Championship in South Carolina will hopefully be completed on Sunday. The third round on Saturday was delayed due to weather, meaning that round will have to be completed on Sunday before the fourth and final round can get underway.

When the third round resumes, Rory McIlroy and Vijay Singh will be tied atop the leaderboard at 6-under. Adam Scott is close behind, at 5-under.

The players are expected to be back out on the course at 4:45 a.m. PT -- weather permitting -- and will finish up their round. The fourth round is expected to begin at 8:30 a.m. PT.

The fourth round (and probably part of the third round) of the PGA Championship airs Sunday from 5 a.m. - 11 a.m. PT on TNT, then will switch over to CBS for coverage from 11 a.m. PT until the end of the day, however long that may take. You will be able to stream par-3 holes and cover marquee pairings live online at PGA.com. There is also a free PGA Championship app for mobile devices that will feature live video and leaderboard updates.

PGA Championship 2012 Scores And Results: Round 3 Suspended Due To Weather As Tiger Woods Struggles Early

Round 3 of the 2012 PGA Championship has been suspended due to thunderstorms and will resume Sunday morning. Play was suspended with the leaders just approaching the midpoint of the course, and the way things currently stand Vijay Singh and Rory McIlroy are tied for the lead. Tiger Woods and Carl Pettersson, both of whom opened the day tied with Singh for the lead, slipped in the rankings.

Pettersson fared better than Woods, shooting an even par through eight and sitting at 4-under, good for fourth place. Woods collected three bogeys in the first seven holes, leaving him 1-under overall and tied for 11th place. Bo Van Pelt was one of the big risers in Round 3, he moved 19 spots up the leaderboard with a score of 5-under in Round 3, leaving him ties for fifth place at 3-under overall.

Round 3 will resume at 4:45 a.m. PT. The final round is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. PT. There's plenty of golf left to play, so things are far from settled at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. For a live leaderboard, check out Golf.com.

PGA Championship Leaderboard Update: Tiger Woods Struggles, Round 3 Suspended Due To Weather

Round 3 of the 2012 PGA Championship has been suspended due to thunderstorms, but prior to that there was some major movement on the leaderboard. Tiger Woods had opened the day tied for the lead with Vijay Singh and Carl Pettersson, but as the leaders finished up the front nine only Singh was still in front.

Singh was 2-under through seven holes, good for 6-under overall and a share of the lead. Rory McIlroy shared it with him, having shot 4-under through nine to arrive at 6-under in total. Pettersson was hanging on, shooting even par through eight and sitting in fourth place. It was Tiger who struggled the most, picking up bogeys on holes four, five and seven to slide to a tie for 11th place at 1-under overall.

That was where things stood when play was suspended, and it is unclear whether play will resume on Saturday or the conclusion of Round 3 will have to wait until Sunday. In either case, tournament victory is still wide open with a lot of golf left to play. For a live leaderboard, visit Golf.com.

2012 PGA Championship Leaderboard: Bo Van Pelt, Steve Striker Playing Well On Saturday

There has been a lot of movement on the leaderboard during the third round of the 2012 PGA Championship. While the co-leaders are not teeing off for another half-hour or so, many have played well enough today to put themselves in contention for a major championship with just one round left to play.

Bo Van Pelt has started his day very well, shooting a -4 through the first eight holes of the day. He's now at -2 in the tournament, which is good for a fifth-place tie and only two strokes back of the leaders. Padraig Harrington has also shot four-under after eight holes, tying him with Van Pelt on the leaderboard.

Steve Striker birdied four of his final five shots on the front-nine to move himself into the top-10 earlier in the day, but he has since shot a +1 and is now at one-under for the event. Justin Rose also started out strong but faltered late; he birdied five of his first ten holes, but has bogeyed twice since then to drop him to +1 overall.

2012 PGA Championship: Tee Times And Pairings For Saturday Delayed Due To Joost Luiten

Joost Luiten was not near the top of the leaderboard at the end of play on Friday. Still, the 2012 PGA Championship will be waiting at his beck and call for a little while longer, at least.

Luiten had shot a 5-over on Friday and plummeted in the standings. He opted not to play his 18th hole and cited darkness as the reason. He will have to wrap things up on Saturday and then begin his third rounds.

What this means is that the tee times for Saturday's scheduled third round in South Carolina cannot -- and will not -- be released until all golfers finish their second round. "All golfers" in this case, of course, meaning "Joost Luiten." The golfer will likely not win many friends with this move.

Luiten will return to play his 18th hole at 4:30 a.m. PT. The tee times for the full third round on Saturday will be released about an hour later.

2012 PGA Championship Results: Tiger Woods Shares Lead After Day 2

At the end of Friday's second round at the 2012 PGA Championship in South Carolina, Tiger Woods is right where he wanted to be: in first place. Woods only shot a 1-under for the day on Friday, but that was good enough for him to earn a share of the lead heading into the weekend's championship rounds.

Woods now sits at 4-under in the tournament. He joins Carl Pettersson, who entered the day at 6-under and had a shaky 2-over round on Friday. Also atop the leaderboard at 4-under is Woods' old friend Vijay Singh, whose 3-under was one of the best rounds of the day.

Rory McIlroy struggled with a 3-over and now sits in a tie for fifth place at a cumulative 2-under. The competition will only get tighter over the next two days.

2012 PGA Championship, Leaderboard Update: Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy Chasing Dutchman Joost Luiten

The threat of a thunderstorm has stayed away at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island during the first round of play at the 2012 PGA Championship, but the threat of a Dutchman taking the tournament is very real as the field is currently chasing Joost Luiten after his blistering start on Thursday.

Luiten is on-fire at the Ocean Course at the moment, sitting at 7-under through 15 holes on his round today. He's carded six birdies and an eagle so far, looking to hang on to the lead down the stretch.

There are still a number of players lurking, including Carl Petterson at 6-under for the day, while Rory McIlroy carded a bogey-free 67 to find himself 5-under for the tournament, tied with American Gary Woodland.

John Daly is off to a great start as well, firing a 4-under 68 on Thursday, while Tiger Woods finished at 3-under 69 for his first round. He carded three bogies and six birdies on the day.

2012 PGA Championship: TV Schedule, How To Watch Online And More

With the start of the 2012 PGA Championship on Thursday at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island in South Carolina, names like Tiger Woods, Rory McIlory, Ernie Els and Phil Mickelson will be vying for the title of PGA champion. But you wont be able to know what happens unless you tune in to find out.

Keegan Bradley took home the Wanamaker trophy in 2011 at the Atlanta Athletic Club, though the field will face a much different test of golf at the Ocean Course, similar to 2010 PGA Championship locale Whistling Straights, only on the shores of the South Carolina coast instead of the shores of Lake Michigan.

The TNT Network will have coverage of first round action from 1-7 p.m. ET on Thursday, with streaming abilities available via PGA.com. You can also follow along with statistics and the full leaderboard at pgatour.com.

PGA Championship 2012 Odds: Tiger Woods Very Heavy Favorite

The odds are out and Tiger Woods is a very heavy favorite to win the 94th PGA Championship at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course. Woods is coming in at 8-to-1 favorite to win, the next closest are Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald at 18-to-1 each.

2011's winner Keegan Bradley (Wood's tee-partner) comes in at 33-to-1. The three major winners so far this season didn't draw the best odds with Webb Simpson at 33-to-1, Bubba Watson at 40-to-1 and Ernie Els at a borderline forgotten 50-to-1. Everyone's favorite Phil Mickelson is sitting at 40-to-1.

PGA Championship odds are out, Tiger Woods the heavy betting favorite - CBSSports.com

There are a few local boys in the mix as well, but if the odds makers have any say none of them will make much of an impact. Kyle Stanley from Gig Harbor leads the way at 100-to-1, Ryan Moore from Tacoma at 125-to-1, Corey Prugh from Spokane at 2,000-to-1 and Jeff Coston from Seattle at a suicidal better's odds of 3,000-to-1.
