Sydney - Ryder Cup star and world No 5 Justin Rose will make his debut appearance at the Australian Open in Sydney in December, organisers said on Friday.

Rose, 32, a four-time PGA Tour winner, played a key role in Europe's thrilling 14 1/2 to 13 1/2 Ryder Cup victory over the United States in Chicago at the weekend.

The Englishman will join eight-time Major winner Tom Watson, world No 6 Adam Scott, defending champion Greg Chalmers and former US Open champion Geoff Ogilvy in the Australian Open field.

"This will be my Australian Open debut and the tournament has a history of wonderful champions and I hope I can add my name to that list in December," Rose said in a statement.

He comes into the tournament at The Lakes on December 6-9 on the back of a runner-up finish at the Tour Championship as well as winning the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March.

Rose has won in Australia before, taking the Australian Masters in 2006 at Melbourne's Huntingdale course.
