Is Rory McIlroy the new Tiger?

For a moment there, it appeared Rory McIlroy would not extend his period of dominance to Valhalla Golf Club. Guess he was just toying with us. McIlroy, who took a 1-shot lead into the final round of the PGA Championship but fell behind early on, eagled No. 10 and eventually clawed his way to his fourth major championship. The 25-year-old from Northern Ireland now has won his past three starts, including the Open Championship, and is No. 1 in the world rankings. Is he finally going to become the new Tiger Woods?
