90th PGA Championship
Ireland's favorite son rallied at Oakland Hills Country Club on a Sunday where few have been to rally before, capturing his third major championship and second in a span of three weeks. In the process, he snatched the Championship from Sergio Garcia's grasp in the final few holes.
Harrington, 36, became the first European in the modern era to win the British Open and PGA Championship in succession, and the first to win the PGA Championship since Scotland's Tommy Armour in 1930.
Harrington has won three of the past six major championships, prevailing by back-to-back rounds of 4-under-par 66, and completing 27 holes on the final day after a third round was suspended by rain in mid-afternoon.
Harrington's winning 72-hole total of 3-under-par 277 was good for a two-stroke margin over Spain's Garcia and America's Ben Curtis, the 2003 British Open champion whose chances faded with bogeys on two of his final four holes. Garcia closed with a 68 and Curtis a 71 to share runner-up honors at 279.
