Rory McIlroy seized the most satisfying major victory of his career Sunday at the PGA Championship, battling from behind against top rivals to put himself on an unimagined golf level.McIlroy, three strokes down at the turn after leading by one after 54-holes, eagled the par-5 10th and added two clutch birdies to overtake Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler at rain-drenched Valhalla for his fourth major triumph.McIlroy, coming off a British Open triumph just three weeks ago at Hoylake, won his other major crowns at the 2011 U.S. Open and 2012 PGA Championship, giving him four wins in the past 15 majors.He has matched Ernie Els and Ray Floyd, moved within one major win of Mickelson and Seve Ballesteros and shocked himself at how rapidly it all happened.McIlroy has said he had no designs on the record 18 majors won by Jack Nicklaus, instead setting more modest goals like Nick Faldo's modern-day European career best of six majors.
