Sydney: US Open runner-up Jason Day will headline November`s Australian PGA Championship alongside Aussie legend Greg Norman, according to organisers.

World number nine Day, Australia`s top-ranked player, will make his debut at the event from November 24-27 in the northeast beach resort of Coolum.

"I`m really excited about coming back to Queensland and playing the PGA at Coolum," said Day, who has finished second at both Majors this season.

"This year will be big. It`s going to be a great field and I`m looking forward to playing well in front of my friends and family and all the young golf fans."

Former world number one Norman is a two-time winner, while America`s world number 13 Bubba Watson is also confirmed for the event operated by OneAsia, one of two rival circuits running in the Asia-Pacific region.
