SINGAPORE (AP) Organizers say PGA Tour Player of the Year Jordan Spieth will headline the Singapore Open in January when the tournament returns after a three-year absence.

Spieth, who won this year's Masters and U.S. Open, will be looking to join a list of big-name Singapore Open winners, including three-time title holder Adam Scott, Ian Poulter, Angel Cabrera and defending champion Matteo Manassero.

Spieth, 22, will play in Singapore for the first time. ''I know the SMBC Singapore Open is one of Asia's leading events and I couldn't be more excited to add it to my 2016 playing schedule,'' he said in a statement.

The $1-million Singapore Open is co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour and the Japan Golf Tour Organization, and will be played at Sentosa Golf Club from Jan 28.
