Major names confirmed for Singapore

Major winners Phil Mickelson, Graeme McDowell, Louis Oosthuizen and Padraig Harrington will all play in next month's Singapore Open, despite the tournament clashing with the Australian Open.

The entrants for the Singapore Open have been confirmed and plenty of golf's top names have opted to play at the Sentosa Golf Club between November 10-13 and the golf betting suggests it will be a great tournament.

Mickelson, along with Irish duo McDowell and Harrington, former US Open champions Retief Goosen and Jim Furyk and ex-Open champions Oosthuizen and Ernie Els will all be in the field for the event.

"With such an elite line-up of players confirmed and with other marquee names still to be announced it is clear that the Barclays Singapore Open will boast one of its strongest ever international line up of competitors," a spokesman for the Singapore Open said.

India's Jeev Milkha Singh, winner of the 2008 event, will also take part as will another Major winner, Korean YE Yang.

For the second successive season a total starting field of 204 players will compete on both The Serapong and The Tanjong courses in the Lion City. Players will play both courses for the first two days and, after the halfway cut, they will then compete just on The Serapong. This means the live in-play betting could get very interesting.

Meanwhile, there are still some top names involved in the Australian Open in Sydney on the same weekend with Tiger Woods set to play.

The former world number one will be joined by local favorites Adam Scott, Geoff Ogilvy, Jason Day and Greg Norman for that tournament.
