World's best highlight PGA Championship field

After years of planning and preparation, the field is complete for the 94th PGA Championship. In less than a week the world's best golfers will travel to Kiawah Island, SC to test their skills in the year's final major championship. The top 108 ranked players in the world are all expected to compete.

The final field of players is set for the 94th PGA Championship at The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. The tournament will allow a maximum of 156 players.

The tournament begins with Thursday's first round. After the second round Friday, the field of 156 players will be reduced to the low 70 scorers and ties. The remaining players will advance to the weekend's final two rounds. 

The list includes British Open champion Ernie Els, U.S. Open champ Webb Simpson and Masters winner Bubba Watson. Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, Luke Donald and others will battle defending champion Keegan Bradley along one of South Carolina's most beautiful beaches.

Practice rounds will be played Monday through Wednesday at The Ocean Course. The tournament will be played Thursday through Sunday. Several players, including British Open runner-up Adam Scott, have already played The Ocean Course in preparation for next week's event. Scott was spotted on the driving range earlier this week.
