McIlroy to play in Singapore
Wednesday 12 September 2012
Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy will tee up alongside three-times winner Adam Scott at November's $6m (£3.7m) Singapore Open, organisers have confirmed.
The world No 1 played the Barclays-sponsored event once before in 2008, a year after turning professional, finishing fourth on that occasion.
Twice a major winner, McIlroy cemented his position as the world's top golfer by winning the BMW Championship on Sunday for his third victory in four outings on the US PGA Tour.
However, the 23-year-old will need to fend off four-times major winner Phil Mickelson, a regular at the lucrative Asian Tour and European Tour joint event.
