PGA Championship Leaderboard 2012: Rory McIlroy Leads Ian Poulter By 4 Strokes

Rory McIlroy continues his strangle hold on the lead at the 2012 PGA Championship. Thus far McIlroy is 3-under for his final round and leads the tournament at 10-under. Ian Poulter had a string of birdies at the beginning of his final round and is four shots back at 6-under par.

Carl Pettersson is also tied for second at 6-under par and has done a nice job overcoming a two-shot penalty to start his final round. Four golfers including Tiger Woods are tied at 4-under and six shots behind McIlroy.

Woods is 2-under through the front nine of his final round but the slow start to Saturday's third round may have taken him too far back to make a run at McIlroy.
