Four-time major champion Rory McIlroy is set to join Ryder Cup teammates Francesco Molinari, Tommy Fleetwood and Justin Rose at the BMW PGA Championships at Wentworth from September 19-22.
McIlroy last won the championships back in 2014, but was runner-up to Molinari last summer.
The competition has been moved from its usual May date to September and will mark the start of the qualification campaign for the next European Ryder Cup team.
McIlroy said: “The BMW PGA Championship is always a great event and I’m looking forward to playing in it again, particularly in its new September date,” said McIlroy.
“The West Course should be in superb condition and the change in date should also mean an even stronger field.
“I’ve won at Wentworth before and finished second behind Frankie last year, so hopefully I can do well again and also get off to a good start in the Ryder Cup qualification."
