Martin Kaymer will be at Lahinch from July 4-7

Martin Kaymer is the latest Major winner to join the star-studded field at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

The former World No 1 will tee it up at Lahinch Golf Club for the first time from July 4-7, joining fellow Major champions Padraig Harrington, Graeme McDowell, Louis Oosthuizen, and Danny Willett, who have already confirmed their participation in the second Rolex Series event of the 2019 Race to Dubai season.

Rolex Series winners Tommy Fleetwood, Lee Westwood and Shane Lowry will also tee it up at the County Clare venue as well as West Waterford's Seamus Power and former Walker Cup players Cormac Sharvin, Paul Dunne and Gavin Moynihan.

Four-time Ryder Cup star Kaymer (34) counts the 2010 US PGA Championship and 2014 US Open amongst his 11 European Tour titles.

He finished third at the Memorial Tournament last week to return to the world's 100 following a wrist injury that hampered most of his 2018 season.

"I'm excited to play links golf in Ireland again because it truly is a spectacular place to visit with some of the best golf courses in the world," said Kaymer, who has played in four Irish Opens, finishing tied 35th at Adare Manor in 2007 and tied 10th there in 2008 before following a missed cut at Royal County Down in 2015 with a tie for fifth at The K Club in 2016.

"The Rolex Series events we play are always impressive, and I know the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open is going to maintain that world-class atmosphere with the course at Lahinch, and the support we get from the Irish crowds and Paul as tournament host.

"I know how meticulous and thorough he is with his preparations, so it will truly be an amazing atmosphere on the West Coast, and I am looking forward to the challenge it poses."

Five current members of the world’s top 50 have officially committed in Rahm (12), Fleetwood (18), Oosthuizen (22), Ian Poulter (32) and Lowry (42).
