PGA Championship 2023: 155 golfers who will be at Oak Hill, and a couple who won’t

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The PGA of America released its preliminary field for the 2023 PGA Championship which will be held next week at Oak Hill Country Club.

The vast majority of the Official World Golf Ranking’s top 100 will be in town, led by Masters champion Jon Rahm and defending PGA champion Justin Thomas.

A couple notable absences are Tiger Woods, who underwent ankle surgery following the Masters and may be out for the rest of the PGA Tour season. And Greece, New York, native Jeff Sluman, who could have played due to his lifetime exemption for having won the 1988 PGA, has opted not to play at the age of 66.

One name that is on the list, Jordan Spieth, may not be come next week. Spieth, who needs to win the PGA to become just the sixth player in history to complete the career grand slam, suffered a wrist injury and had to withdraw from the Byron Nelson tournament this weekend.

“I’m focused on healing as quickly as possible and will have to evaluate my recovery week to week,” Spieth wrote on Twitter. “Sincere thanks to the medical professionals who have supported me over the weekend.”

The field is not finalized as players could still drop out for various reasons and alternates would be added. As of Wednesday morning, these are the players that have officially committed to play:
