Ironically, the last time McGinley appeared in the Major Championship arena was at the 2009 Open at Turnberry, when Watson, then 59, famously went all the way to a play-off.
The Dubliner's best finish at the Majors was a share of sixth place at the 2004 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.
Defending champion Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell, Darren Clarke, Shane Lowry and 2008 PGA Champion Padraig Harrington will also tee it up next week at Oak Hill, venue for the 2003 PGA and scene of Europe's 1995 Ryder Cup success in which Philip Walton played a decisive part.
