PGA Championship field 2019: Who is playing this year? Complete lineup, pairings and more

Sporting News — (Zac Al-Khateeb)

It may be a few months early, but the 2019 PGA Championship is nearly here for golf fans — and Tiger Woods fans — to enjoy.

The PGA Championship formally was played a few weekends prior Labor Day, but, starting with this year's tournament, will now be played on the weekend before Memorial Day. This year's event will take place at Farmingdale, N.Y.

You never need to justify watching a major tournament, but this year's PGA Championship offers a particularly tantalizing storyline in Tiger, who just came off a win in the Masters, his first since 2005 and first major victory since the 2008 U.S. Open. Could he possibly follow that up with yet another major win? The fact he finished second in the 2018 PGA Championship, just two strokes behind winner Brooks Koepka, only adds to the intrigue.

It's certainly something to keep an eye on, but there will be plenty of good golf to watch regardless. With that, Sporting News has the full player listing and pairings for the 2019 PGA Championship.
