Daly, Montgomerie, Watson highlight Senior PGA field at Harbor Shores in May

John Daly will make his Senior PGA Championship debut at Harbor Shores while Tom Watson will return fresh off his farewell appearance at the Masters, and Colin Montgomerie will defend his title when senior golf's oldest and most prestigious major returns to Benton Harbor, Mich., May 24-29, 2016.

Daly – a two-time major champion who shocked the world of golf by winning the 1991 PGA Championship after entering the week as the event's ninth alternate – turns 50 in April, and has already committed to play.

Watson, 67, is now focused exclusively on senior golf after playing the Masters for the final time in April. He won his first Senior PGA Championship title in 2001, and captured a second in 2011.

Montgomerie, for many years a Ryder Cup hero for Europe and eight times the leading money winner on the European Tour, will be gunning for his third straight victory in the Senior PGA Championship, having won at Harbor Shores in 2014 and again last year in Indiana. In the event's history, the only other player to win three straight was Hale Irwin in 1996-1998.
