, Camilo Villegas, Paul Casey, Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood, are just a few stars already confirmed for the tournament next month.

World number nine Kim said: “I’m very excited to play in my first Johnnie Walker Classic. I’m really enjoying playing in tournaments all around the world, and I can’t wait to visit Perth.

“One of my goals this year is to win my first European Tour title, and it would be great to do that at the Johnnie Walker Classic.”

Meanwhile, Montgomerie, an eight-time winner of The Harry Vardon Trophy, said: “It’s a tournament I always enjoy, and yet it’s one I haven’t managed to win.

“But it’s certainly a title I would like to have on my CV, and I hope this will be the year.”
