John Huh is in the field after all!

Huh was the first alternate and was undoubtedly waiting like the rest of us to see if Tiger Woods was going to play in the 2014 PGA Championship (he is) and was likely bummed thinking he wasn't going to get in.

Except on Thursday Matt Kuchar withdrew with with back pain which allowed Huh into the field. 

Kuchar, some might not realize, is ranked No. 6 in the world so it's a big deal that he's withdrawing. 

It's also a big deal for Tom Watson and the Ryder Cup as Kuchar was considered to be a stalwart of the team.
