PGA Championship includes world top 100

The PGA Championship, which annually features the strongest field among the four majors, announced a 155-man lineup Monday that includes the top 100 in the world ranking.

If none of those players withdraw by the time the PGA Championship starts Aug. 15 at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Minnesota, it will be the first time a major championship has had the top 100.

The PGA set a record last year with 95 out of the top 100 players in the world.

Defending champion David Toms is joined by 12 former PGA champions, including Tiger Woods, who won the previous two PGAs and will be going for his third major of the year.

The field will be 156 players, but the PGA left open one spot in case the winner of this week's Buick Open has not already qualified. The first alternate is David Gossett.
