The field for next week's PGA Championship is almost set.
The PGA of America released Tuesday the field list, currently at 155 players with one spot available for the winner of this week's AT&T Byron Nelson, for the year's second major championship, at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York.
World No. 9 Will Zalatoris is the only top-100 player in the Official World Golf Ranking who did not accept an invite. Zalatoris is out for the remainder of the season after having back surgery last month.
Among the players slated to compete are 18 current LIV Golf members: Abraham Ancer, Dean Burmester, Paul Casey, Bryson DeChambeau, Talor Gooch, Dustin Johnson, Martin Kaymer, Sihwan Kim, Brooks Koepka, Anirban Lahiri, Phil Mickelson, Joaquin Niemann, Mito Pereira, Thomas Pieters, Patrick Reed, Cameron Smith, Brendan Steele and Harold Varner III.
Davis Love III, the 1997 PGA champion at Winged Foot, withdrew after the initial field was announced, allowing world No. 102 Alex Smalley to get in.
