The second major men’s golf championship of 2022 begins Thursday in Tulsa, Oklahoma, as Southern Hills Golf Club hosts the PGA Championship for the fifth time. 

However, two of the biggest names in men’s golf will not be in the field. Defending champion Phil Mickelson, who became the oldest golfer to win a major title at age 50, has decided not to participate. And 2020 U.S. Open champion Bryson DeChambeau withdrew on Wednesday as he continues to recover from wrist surgery. 

There will still be plenty of star power in the field as four-time PGA champion Tiger Woods will be playing in the tournament’s highest-profile grouping with Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth for the first two rounds.

‘I’LL BE READY’: Tiger Woods says he can win fifth PGA Championship

ARMOUR: What’s sad isn’t Phil missing the PGA Championship. It’s Mickelson himself

Bryson DeChambeau traveled to Tulsa, Oklahoma, this week with the hopes of playing in the 104th PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club.

But, after testing his surgically repaired left wrist over the last few days, he decided to withdraw from the second men’s major of the year.

“Just not ready yet,” DeChambeau said in a text to Golfweek.

DeChambeau hasn’t played on the PGA Tour since the Masters. He missed the cut after struggling through the first two rounds with a 76 on Thursday and a Friday 80, the highest major championship score of his career.

TULSA, Okla. — Somewhere PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan is smiling as wide as the Grand Canyon after hearing the pro-PGA Tour support from Tiger Woods.

When asked to share his feelings about Phil Mickelson being absent from the PGA Championship this week, Woods expressed his disappointment that the defending champion wouldn’t be competing, saying, “We’ll miss him,” but didn’t mince words.

“Phil has said some things that I think a lot of us who are committed to the Tour and committed to the legacy of the Tour have pushed back against, and he’s taken some personal time, and we all understand that,” Woods said. “Some of his views on how the Tour could be run, should be run, been a lot of disagreement there. Obviously we’re going to have difference of opinions, how he sees the Tour, and we’ll go from there.”

During his Tuesday press conference, Woods made it perfectly clear he’s committed to the PGA Tour and distanced himself from the vision for world golf that Mickelson, Greg Norman and others are pitching.

“I believe in legacies. I believe in major championships. I believe in big events, comparisons to historical figures of the past,” Woods said. “There’s plenty of money out here … You have to go out there and earn it.”

Phil Mickelson’s absence will no doubt loom large over the PGA Championship. A year after his improbable win at Kiawah Island, this week would have been a celebration of that accomplishment and so many others in his career.

Instead of sadness at how far the most beloved golfer since Arnold Palmer has fallen, however, there should be a sense of relief. Bad as it’s been to see his image and reputation go up in flames from a distance, it would be far worse to see the blaze up close.

And that’s exactly what would have happened had Mickelson showed up at Southern Hills.

He will not be able to dodge the pointed questions about the new Saudi-backed golf tour or the unauthorized biography of him that was released this week whenever he does resurface. The more space he can put between himself and the revelations that undermine the Man of the People image he’s crafted so carefully all these years, the better.
