McDowell and Rory McIlroy to play in Irish Open

Rory McIlroy and fellow countryman Graeme McDowell have confirmed their participation in the Irish Open which is scheduled to take place early next summer in what is being seen as a huge boost to the event.

The confirmation came after the European Tour sanctioned a change of date for the event and it enabled the duo from the Northern Irish province of Ulster to throw their names into the mix for the Irish Open title.
