Luke Donald has accepted an invitation to take part in the Australian Masters that takes place between December 15th and 18th.
The event will be the first time the man from Hemel Hempstead has competed down under and he will be joined at the event by compatriot Ian Poulter.
"I have never played in Australia but I have heard so many great things about the sandbelt courses, the people there, and the country's culture," said Donald.
"I am really looking forward to the trip and the experience."
Tiger Woods played previously in the event in 2009, coming out victorious at that years' venue Kingston Heath, his last victory to date just a week before the revelations about his private life were made.
Woods' returned to the tournament last year but will not making an appearance this time round meaning World Number One Donald is sure to be the star attraction this year's competition. Those looking at the 2011 The Open golf betting will be wondering if he can add a major to his name before then.
By then Donald will hope to have added Major championship to his C.V. after a disappointing US Open campaign which many believed was his big chance to win one of the big four. Instead, like the rest of the field, he was outclassed by fellow Ryder Cupper Rory McIlroy and now heads to the third Major of the year, The Open Championship. The tournament is probably the most sought after title within the game and Donald should be suited to a course where length off the tee is not the be all and end all and The Open golf betting odds reflect this.
Rather than powered his way to victories like Woods and many of his colleagues, Donald has built his success on accurate iron play and a strong short game, characterised by his superb putting which should suite the Kent layout superbly.
