Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson among field for next week’s PGA Championship at Southern Hills

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are among the golfers included in the field for the 2022 PGA Championship, which begins May 19 at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Okla.

Woods got in a practice round at the course last month as part of his comeback from extensive surgeries after his February 2021 car crash in California.

Woods made the cut at last month’s Masters, finishing in 47th place out of the 52 golfers who advanced to the weekend. It was his first time competing and walking a course since the crash.

Woods has won the PGA Championship four times, most recently in 2007 — the last time it was held at Southern Hills.

Mickelson hasn’t golfed in a tournament since catching flak for his comments about the PGA Tour made public in February. He was considering joining a Saudi-backed breakaway league that intended to rival the PGA, saying it was worth getting involved with the Saudis, despite the regime’s history of human rights abuses, if it meant a chance to change the PGA Tour.

“We know they killed [Washington Post columnist Jamal] Khashoggi and have a horrible record on human rights. They execute people over there for being gay,” he said. “Knowing all of this, why would I even consider it? Because this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reshape how the PGA Tour operates.”

Mickelson has won the PGA Championship twice, including in 2021 — his most recent major victory.

Other notables in the field include Scottie Scheffler, who won the Masters last month, and John Daly, the 1991 PGA Championship winner who played in last year’s US Senior Open at Southern Hills.

Past PGA champions in the field include: Collin Morikawa (2020), Brooks Koepka (2018, 2019), Justin Thomas (2017), Jimmy Walker (2016), Jason Day (2015), Rory McIlroy (2012, 2014), Jason Dufner (2013), Keegan Bradley (2011), Martin Kaymer (2010), Yang Yong-eun (2009), Padraig Harrington (2008), Shaun Micheel (2003), Rich Beem (2002), and Davis Love III (1997).
