EUROPEAN Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley will feature among six Irish aces in the line-up as the field for next week's PGA Championship at Oak Hill was confirmed.

McGinley and his US counterpart Tom Watson both have been invited to play the final Major of the season by the PGA of America, who also promote the Ryder Cup.

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.
