Top-ranked Rory McIlroy will defend his Hong Kong Open title next month.
McIlroy, who had not been certain of playing in the Nov. 15-18 event, said Wednesday he would return.
He says ''there had been a little doubt over Hong Kong but now that it's all sorted out with the sponsor and so on, I am going to defend my title.''
McIlroy, who wants to finish No. 1 on the European Tour, is also set to play the BMW Masters in Shanghai from Oct. 25-28 and the Singapore Open from Nov.8-11 before the season-ending Dubai World Championship.
