The end of the 2014 PGA Championship was not only one of the wildest golf tournaments I've ever seen but one of the wildest sporting events I've ever seen -- maybe of my lifetime.

Rory McIlroy won (I have no idea how) and I tried to document everything that happened here.

9:03 p.m. -- I have no idea what the hell just happened but I know it was awesome and I know Rory McIlroy has four majors and I know the Masters starts in 242 days. Thanks for joining us all week for the best major I've ever covered.

8:45 p.m. -- Rory McIlroy won. I think.

8:37 p.m. -- I don't know what to write.

8:34 p.m. -- I don't know what is happening.

8:33 p.m. -- I mean, look at this!

8:31 p.m. -- My goodness.

8:30 p.m. -- Fowler and Mickelson are letting McIlroy and Wiesberger play through. This is amazing.

8:28 p.m. -- This could be it.

8:23 p.m. -- Yeah, this is true.

8:21 p.m. -- Rory's a boss. Tiger just turned this thing off.

8:13 p.m. -- Do you think Phil will lay up on No. 18 or go for it in two?

8:12 p.m. -- Rory is up one with two left. It might take an eagle in the dark on No. 18 for somebody to take it.

8:06 p.m. -- Rory is alone at the top somehow.

8:02 p.m. -- All in.

7:56 p.m. -- Haha!

7:54 p.m. -- If Phil hits a 25-footer on No. 16 and runs after it and points I'm going to die.

7:50 p.m. -- Monday morning playoff if it's needed.

7:41 p.m. -- Bernd Wiesberger is basically being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to have a front-row seat to one of the best majors of the last five years.

7:37 p.m. -- David Feherty just said "[Rory's] reaction to that last putt I think would have knocked out Muhammad Ali."

7:33 p.m. -- Rory ties it up. Wow.

7:20 p.m. -- How awesome is this?

7:14 p.m. -- Here's Phil from forever for par.

7:09 p.m. -- Rory looks soulless right now. I can't tell if that's good or bad.

7:05 p.m. -- Haha!

7:03 p.m. -- Can we dump Bernd and just let Rors play in with Rickie and Phil?

6:58 p.m. -- Here's the insane second shot from Rory at No. 10 that ended in eagle. (h/t Big Lead)

6:56 p.m. -- Rory is back in it with an eagle at No. 10. I'm at a loss. This is too much. I'm out of adjectives and we have eight holes left.

6:48 p.m. -- Here's the putt that might have won the PGA Championship.

6:46 p.m. -- My gosh, if Mikko Ilonen wins this thing.

6:43 p.m. -- This is bizarre. Nobody moves even though it looks like somebody got smoked.

6:35 p.m. -- It seems like there's a negative amount of energy surrounding the Rory McIlroy group right now.

6:32 p.m. -- I do love this:

6:30 p.m. -- Phil Mickelson is tied for the lead going to the back nine. Wowza.

6:25 p.m. -- What if Rory is down one and hits his drive on No. 18 at, say, 8:40 p.m.?

6:23 p.m. -- Ryan Palmer has a ton of #TourSauce in him, doesn't he?

6:19 p.m. -- It feels like things have been kind of slow today even though a lot is happening. Kind of a weird day rhythm-wise.

6:09 p.m. -- Fowler is playing like an absolute boss.

6:01 p.m. -- Phil just destroyed a shot from 240 yards out in the first cut right at a pin on a par 5 because it's Sunday at a major. Of course.

5:52 p.m. -- This from Fowler is awesome.

5:48 p.m. -- Is Rory fading? He sure isn't playing very well today. Of the top 30 he's the only one over par.

5:36 p.m. -- Big Easy running out of holes here. Quite the performance, though.

5:18 p.m. -- Rickie Fowler leads by himself after this chip-in.

5:05 p.m. -- I would agree.

5:02 p.m. -- Here's the PGA Championship leaderboard right now:

4:56 p.m. -- Here's Phil's first birdie:

4:53 p.m. -- Feels like it's a good thing for Phil and Rickie to play together today. They'll feed off that like crazy.

4:42 p.m. -- This is strong work.

4:41 p.m. -- This is so incredible.

4:24 p.m. -- Phil birdies No. 1 so that's amazing. He's two back and Rory's in the rough off the tee.

4:17 p.m. -- I'm genuinely giddy for this final round and the leaders are just now teeing off.

4:11 p.m. -- The #protraj on that Fowler drive was a middle finger right towards McIlroy.

3:54 p.m. -- Big Easy is 4 under thru 6 if that's any indication of how easy the scoring is out there. Just four back, too.

3:25 p.m. -- By the way, this shot earlier by Thorbjorn Olesen was insane:

3:24 p.m. -- I just texted my buddy this question: "If Rickie shoots __________ he wins. His response: "Rory."

3:06 p.m. -- This does not seem great:

2:44 p.m. -- Swanny!

2:30 p.m. -- Here's when the leaders are teeing off:

2:14 p.m. -- Sunset in Louisville is 8:42 p.m.

2:13 p.m. -- Okay, we're back at it.

1:50 p.m. -- This is hilarious:

1:49 p.m. -- Yeah, we could be looking at a Monday finish.

1:46 p.m. -- No they weren't, Lee.

1:45 p.m. -- Here's the craziest look at what the rain is doing at the PGA Championship:

1:08 p.m. -- There's an indefinite rain delay at the PGA Championship. Here's the story.

1:05 p.m. -- Holy cow!

12:07 p.m. -- What are those pants made of?

12:05 p.m. -- This is incredible.

11:58 a.m. -- I wonder what the number is today. I think Rory might get to 18 which would mean Fowler needs a 64 to get into a playoff and Day and Phil would need 63s. Not sure that's happening.

10:45 a.m. -- Mickelson with some quality #toursauce before Sunday's final round.

9:22 a.m. -- Then there's this:

9:21 a.m. -- I do wonder if somebody has a 62 in them today early on. That still might not be enough to catch the Ulsterman.

9:00 a.m. -- Good morning. I need coffee like Rickie Fowler and Phil Mickelson need Rory McIlroy to get dirreha this morning.
