On May 9, the PGA of America announced the field for its 2022 PGA Championship at Southern Hills. Though 156 players will tee it up in Tulsa, Okla., most eyes gravitated towards two names.

That would be Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. Woods made his first tournament start since his February 2021 car accident last month at the Masters and made a scouting trip to Southern Hills in late April. Though Woods intends to play in the year’s second major, sources in Woods’ camp told Golf Digest Woods is waiting to see how his body responded to an increased workload before making any final decisions. Woods has won four career Wanamakers, including the 2007 PGA contested at Southern Hills. He's also listed on the official interview list, suggesting he's on track to play.

As for the reigning PGA champ, a title defense would have signaled an end to Mickelson’s sabbatical from the sport since his comments on Saudi golf went public in February. Seth Waugh, the CEO of the PGA of America, said on the “5 Clubs Conversation” podcast that he’s had a “number” of talks with Mickelson over the last several weeks and that they will continue to do so as the championship nears. But on Friday, the talks resulted in an annoucnement by the PGA of America that Mickelson had choosen to withdraw from the championship.

It should be noted the field is far from final; for example Bryson DeChambeau is listed among the participants. While DeChambeau has not officially pulled out of the competition, his presence would be a surprise given his recent surgery. Meanwhile over the weekend, Harris English and Paul Casey both withdrew from the tournament due to injuries.

According to the PGA of America the field includes 17 PGA champions, 34 major winners and the top 70 players who have earned the most PGA Championship points through the 2022 Wells Fargo Championship, along with the the top-20 finishers from the 2022 PGA Professional Championship. The final spot in the field is reserved for winner of the AT&T Byron Nelson.
