Padraig Harrington will make his first appearance in the European Tour's flagship BMW PGA Championship for three years at Wentworth from May 20-23.

The announcement was made after Harrington finally managed to practice on the new-look West Course today after being forced to change his plans last week because of flight problems caused by the volcanic ash.

"I'm very impressed with the changes that have been made and in particular I'm happy to see the way that the greens are now putting," said the three-time major winner.

"I really want to win the BMW PGA Championship and look forward to coming back.

"Once I heard that they were going to remodel the greens, I said that when that happens I'll be one of the first there."
