With the event scheduled for June 15–18, golf enthusiasts are surely on the edge of their seats to see the upcoming amazing performances on the field. Many are definitely rooting for their favorites. Since golf fans first saw Brooks Koepka and other LIV Golf stars competing in this year’s PGA Championship, the excitement has increased significantly.

As per the recent development where the PGA Tour is merging with LIV Golf, many are assuming that LIV golfers are allowed to play at the event. Although the merger is in progress, as per the reports, all of the tours will stay independent during the rest of 2023, and all of their tournaments will go ahead as planned. This implies that the competition is only open to LIV golfers who have earned a spot in the US Open.

Bubba Watson already has two green jackets to his name. And therefore, he has earned his way to the Masters tournament for life. But he did not participate in the PGA Championship because his exemptions had expired. And now the story continues in the US Open field. In short, fans will not be able to see Watson’s magic at the major event as he chose not to enter. However, a number of other golfers, like Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka, and Cameron Smith, have earned their spots in the field for the US Open this year.
