Charlie send a Brutal message concerning the Current major eligibility list for all LIV Golf players

This week, the PGA of America published its field list for the 2024 PGA Championship, and 16 LIV golfers will be teeing it up at Valhalla Golf Club next week, headlined by defending champion Brooks Koepka.

The 16 LIV participants at the PGA matches the number who competed at Oak Hill last year, and is three more than the 13 who competed at Augusta National last month (the Masters’ field size is substantially smaller).

While LIV players remain eligible for majors, no governing bodies to date have offered a direct pathway through performance on LIV, meaning qualification is very difficult for those without previously existing exemptions.

The PGA of America did keep with its past practice of inviting players inside or around the top 100 of the world rankings who were not otherwise in the field, and several LIV players fell into that category this week: Adrian Meronk (63rd), Lucas Herbert (89th), Patrick Reed (92nd), David Puig (106th), and Dean Burmester (130th).

Talor Gooch, LIV’s individual champion last season, was also invited despite being ranked 644th.
