ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Masters and U.S. Open champion Jordan Spieth completed his early-asian Asia swing with Wednesday's announcement that he will play the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship in January.

Abu Dhabi again will have a top-heavy field at the start of the year with Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Henrik Stenson among the top-ranked players Jan. 21-24.

Spieth previously announced he would play the Singapore Open the week after Abu Dhabi.

Spieth, Fowler and Jason Day are expected to play the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii on Jan. 7-10. Spieth and Fowler then will cross 14 time zones to compete in Abu Dhabi.
