US PGA Championship 2022: Who is in the field?

Published:

Tiger Woods is among the 156 golfers confirmed for the US PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club, but Phil Mickelson won’t defend his title.

Today’s Golfer’s 2022 Major coverage is brought to you in association with TaylorMade.

The year’s second men’s Major Championship gets underway on May 19 as Mickelson defends the Wanamaker Trophy.

The field, which includes 17 past US PGA Champions, 34 Major Champions, three World Golf Hall of Fame Members and four Ryder Cup Captains, also features the top 70 players who have earned the most PGA Championship points through the 2022 Wells Fargo Championship and the top-20 finishers from the 2022 PGA Professional Championship.

Phil Mickelson hasn't played on the PGA Tour since the fallout around his Saudi Arabia comments.

It is arguably the strongest field of the year and will draw even more attention this year with Tiger Woods in the event.

Woods returned to competitive golf at the Masters in April, 14 months after suffering life-threatening injuries in a car crash.

However, defending champion Phil Mickelson, who hasn’t played since last played in February having taken a break from the game after criticising Saudi Arabia’s regime, has withdrawn.

The 51-year-old, who became golf’s oldest major champion with his win at Kiawah Island, lost multiple sponsors and saw his reputation tarnished after he sought to use involvement with a Saudi Arabian-backed golf super league to gain leverage over the PGA Tour. It saw him miss his first Masters in 28 years and, having originally been named among the field for this week’s Major, means he’ll now miss his defence, too.

Tiger Woods returned to action at The Masters.

For Woods it’ll be just his second competitive start since suffering life-threatening injuries in a car crash in February 2021.

The 15-time Major champion finished 47th and initially refused to commit to playing at Southern Hills, saying that he was focusing on the 150th Open Championship at St Andrews. However, Woods had been seen practising at the US PGA venue in recent weeks and his place was confirmed in the final starters’ list released on May 9.

They’ll be joined in the field by all of the game’s big names, including World No.1 and Masters champion, Scottie Scheffler, four-time Major champion Rory McIlroy, and three-time Major champion Jordan Spieth, who will aim to complete the career grand slam.

Scottie Scheffler won the Masters by three shots.

Here’s a look at the full field, listed in alphabetical order by surname.
