The 2023 PGA Championship field features 156 players, and approximately 10 percent of that field is made up of players who currently compete on LIV Golf.
In total, 16 LIV Golf players are among the invitees to Oak Hill Country Club, with the club agreeing to invite any players who would have otherwise qualified for an invite based on shared criteria. Some players qualified as past PGA champions, who traditionally have been assured of an effective life invitation. Some players qualified as winners of another of the three majors in the last five years.
Players who finished in the top 15 of last year's PGA Championship earned a spot as well.
All told, approximately a third of LIV Golf's 48 players this season are in the PGA Championship field, though that's likely to be the high water mark in any major this year.
