As each golf season progresses, various tournaments take turns claiming to have the year's strongest field. The merits of the various gatherings of players can be debated, but it's tough to argue with the field for next week's PGA Championship. As of now, the top 108 players in the Official World Ranking – all 108 of them – are scheduled to tee it up on The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island.

The roster includes 32 major champions, 71 international players representing 21 countries, 13 past PGA champions and all three of this year's major winners.

Could this be, from top to bottom, the best field ever assembled for a major championship? If it's not, it's certainly in the ballpark.
