South Africa's world No. 12 golfer Louis Oosthuizen is set to return to Singapore for the Barclays Singapore Open, after narrowly missing out on the playoff in last year's edition.

The winner of the 2010 British Open and runner-up in this year's US Masters joins a list of big names including Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland and American Phil Mickelson, to have confirmed their participation in the Nov 8 to 11 event at the Serapong Course.

Said Oosthuizen, 29: "It's a really good golf course and the greens are nice. I'm really looking forward to it."

Spain's Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano won last year's edition of the US$6 million tournament.
