Two-time Masters champion Phil Mickelson will play next month's $5 million Barclays Singapore Open next month, the richest national championship in Asia, organizers announced on Wednesday.

Mickelson, who won the U.S. PGA's Tour Championship event on the weekend with a final round 65 and a three-shot win over Tiger Woods, will join other major winners Padraig Harrington and Ernie Els in the October 29-Nov. 1 tournament.

Els finished second here last year to India's Jeev Milkha Singh.

It will be Mickelson's third trip to the tournament, having finished ninth last year.

The Singapore Open, co-sanctioned by the Asian and European tours, will be the first of two tournaments the No. 2-ranked Mickelson will play in Asia in two weeks. He will join Woods at the World Golf Championship event at Shanghai, China the following week.
