Justin Rose has confirmed that he will make his return to the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open in July, seven years after his last outing.
The 36-year-old confirmed his participation after almost adding to his 2013 US Open title at the recent Masters when losing out to Sergio Garcia in a play-off.
It is the first time Rose will have played on Northern Irish soil at Portstewart Golf Club from July 6-9 and will be his first appearance in the prestigious tournament, which is hosted by the Rory McIlroy Foundation, since 2010.
“I haven’t played the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open for a while so I’m excited about going back,” said Rose on the European Tour website.
“With Rory’s involvement the last couple of years the event has gone from strength to strength and being part of the Rolex Series will give it an even bigger boost.
“Irish fans are always a lot of fun to play in front of, it’s always good craic out there! We’ll all enjoy the tournament and it’s obviously great preparation for The Open Championship too.
“I think it’s very good to get some links golf under your belt before The Open. Playing the Scottish Open the week before is a great idea and also playing two weeks before is great because you can have a week before to fine tune.”
