Spieth headlines Singapore Open
Singapore Open organisers confirmed that USPGA Tour player of the year Jordan Spieth will headline the event, when it returns from a three-year break in January.
The 22-year-old American has had a break-out year on the PGA Tour, and hisfive victories this season include two major titles claimed at the Masters and US Open.
"I'm very fortunate to play golf around the world and can't wait to visit Singapore for the first time," the world number two said in a statement to the press.
After signing a deal with Japan's Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, the SMBC Singapore Open will take place at the Sentosa Golf Club from January 28 to 31 and will boast a prize fund in excess of US$1million.
The tournament took place last in November 2012, after British bank Barclays opted against renewing its sponsorship in 2013.
Italy's Matteo Manassero won the last edition, while former Masters champion Adam Scott is a three-time winner with victories in 2005, 2006 and 2010.
Other players that have headlined the event include world number three Rory McIlroy, five-time major winner Phil Mickelson and former world number one Ernie Els. The tournament is an Asian Tour-Japan Golf Tour co-sanctioned event.
