Rory McIlroy knows as well as anyone how quickly fortunes can change in golf.

Until winning at his happy hunting ground of Quail Hollow last week, McIlroy had gone 18 months without winning anywhere, the second-longest dry spell of his career. Now he's the betting favorite for the PGA Championship, which starts next Thursday at Kiawah Island.

It's not much different from nine years ago, the last time the PGA Championship went to the South Carolina shores of Kiawah Island.
