Two-time Major champion and World No. 3 Rory McIlroy will play in this year’s Australian Open, organisers said on Saturday.

It will be the 24-year-old Northern Irishman’s first appearance at the Australian Open since 2007 when he tees off at the Royal Sydney Golf Club for the November 28-December 1 tournament.

“It’s been a few years since I last competed in an Australian Open. I competed in 2006 when I was still an amateur and then a year later after just turning pro,” McIlroy said. — AFP
