FRISCO, Texas (March 23, 2023) – The 2023 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship announced today that nine World Golf Hall of Fame players will be part of the 156-player field in the inaugural Major Championship played on Fields Ranch East at PGA Frisco.
Ernie Els, Nick Faldo, Retief Goosen, Pádraig Harrington (class of 2024), Colin Montgomerie, Bernhard Langer, Davis Love III, José María Olazábal, and Vijay Singh are all members of the World Golf Hall of Fame and are committed to be in the field at the 2023 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship.
These players have combined to win 23 majors, 17 Tour Champions majors, and 445 total victories between the PGA Tour, PGA Tour Champions, and international tournaments.
Langer is one of the greatest senior golfers in history. He is an 11-time senior major winner including the 2017 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, the most of any player. His 45 Tour Champions victories are tied for the most all-time with Hale Irwin.
Els, coming off his first PGA Tour Champions win at the 2023 Hoag Classic, is a four-time major champion looking for his first Tour Champions major.
Faldo, Love III, and Olazábal combined to win nine major titles but all three are looking for their first Tour Champions victory.
Montgomerie, one of the most successful international players out of the nine Hall of Fame members in the field (42 international wins), has captured three senior majors including back-to-back KitchenAid Senior PGA Championships in 2014-15.
Goosen and Harrington are each chasing a second senior major. Goosen has two career Tour Champions wins while Harrington has four wins in just 23 events played.
Singh captured 34 wins and three majors on the PGA Tour; he’s won four times with one major as a senior.
The full field for the 2023 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship will be announced at a later date.
A limited number of ticket, hospitality and pro-am experiences remain available to be a part of the 83rd KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, the first Major Championship to be contested on Fields Ranch East at PGA Frisco. Visit SRPGA.com for more information.
