Star duo join Donald in Malaysia

Padraig Harrington and Charl Schwartzel will compete at next month's Malaysian Open, alongside Luke Donald.

After finishing tied for ninth at the Phoenix Open last week, Harrington has moved up to 47 on the latest world ranking and will make his first appearance in Malaysia since 2006.

Schwartzel, whose greatest triumph came at Augusta when he won his first Green Jacket in 2011, said that the event in Malaysia was not to be missed.

"It's one of my favourite events of the year and I love Asia - the food, people, culture and golf courses," the world number 18 commented on the official European Tour website.

Joining them at the March 21-24 event will be Italy's former champion, Matteo Manassero.
