Cape Town - South Africa's Charl Schwartzel will join reigning Masters champion Danny Willett at the Maybank Championship next year.
Schwartzel, 32, won the coveted green jacket at Augusta National Golf Club in 2011 and is a 11-time European Tour winner.
"The Maybank Championship is one of the marquee events in Asia for the European Tour so I’m really looking forward to being there," said Schwartzel, as quoted by The Star website.
"The 2017 season has started well for me so I am feeling good about the year ahead and am excited to see what I can do when I get to Malaysia in February."
Schwartzel didn't have the perfect start to his 2017 campaign, as he failed to defend the Alfred Dunhill Championship and ended tied fourth - ten shots behind winner Brandon Stone.
However with a jam-packed golfing season looming ahead, Schwartzel will look to take momentum from his stellar 2016 season where he clinched the Valspar Championship and made five top 10s including a fourth-place finish at the BMW Championship.
Schwartzel comes to Malaysia with experience having competed five times in the Malaysian Open.
The Maybank Championship is scheduled to tee off at the Saujana Golf and Country Club from February 9-12, 2017.
