Hours after the PGA of America announced Phil Mickelson would not be defending his PGA Championship title, the tournament offered a strong indication that Tiger Woods will golf at Southern Hills.
Woods was listed on the pre-championship interview list scheduled for 1:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday. If Woods competes, it would be his second major championship since nearly losing his right leg in a single-car wreck in February 2021.
Tournament purse set at $12 million
Woods officially returned to competition in April at the Masters, finishing in 47th place. Shortly after, he held an 18-hole practice round at the Southern Hills Championship Course.
Southern Hills is also where Woods won the 2007 PGA Championship, his most recent in this major. Woods also won at Southern Hills in 1999, 2000 and 2006. The tournament purse is set at $12,000,000.
