Patrick Reed will join Sergio Garcia and a series of other LIV golfers at the inaugural St Andrews Bay Championship this month.

The 2018 Masters champion is set to tee it up in the first Asian Tour event staged in Scotland as part of the lucrative International Series.

Reed will star alongside Garcia and Joaquin Niemann on the Torrance Course in the $1.5million tournament at Fairmont St Andrews from 24-27 August.

Fellow LIV golfers Branden Grace, Dean Burmester, Matt Jones, Sebastian Munoz, Eugenio Chacarra, Danny Lee and Bernd Wiesberger have also committed to competing on what is the 12th leg of the Asian Tour season.

It is the sixth event of the International Series and the venue, which last year hosted Final Qualifying for The Open, is situated just four miles from the Old Course in Fife.

Cho Minn Thant, Asian Tour Commissioner and Chief Executive Officer, said: “We’ve had some strong fields at our International Series events thus far and the St Andrews Bay Championship is no exception.

“It’s wonderful to have such prominent players compete more regularly on the Asian Tour since the establishment of the International Series and this definitely validates the Asian Tour’s growth into a global Tour.”

The Asian Tour’s International Series is made up of 10 events that all have elevated prize purses and the inclusion of LIV players has significantly boosted interest in the events.

Reed, currently 50th in the Official World Golf Rankings, has the chance to play for ranking points in these events when he is not competing on the LIV circuit.

And before pitching up at Fairmont St Andrews, Reed will play once more on UK soil, at the International Series England event at Close House, Newcastle.

Lee Westwood will also be competing at his home course in the North East, alongside former Ryder Cup teammate Graeme McDowell and Mexico’s Abraham Ancer.
