It's the first time the popular Spaniard has played down under since 2010.

Reigning Masters champion Sergio Garcia will headline the Australian PGA Championship field in December after announcing his first trip down under in seven years.

No. 5-ranked Garcia, who broke his 18-year drought at the majors when he won the Masters in April, has confirmed he'll play at the November 30-Dec.

The world number five will tee it up at Royal Pines from November 30, adding to a strong worldwide contingent for the Australian majors with The Open champion Jordan Spieth returning to Sydney for the Australian Open.

PGA CEO Gavin Kirkman said enticing Garcia was a coup for the tournament.

Garcia is not the only current major champion heading to Australia this summer, with British Open champion Jordan Spieth confirmed for the Australian Open in Sydney.

"It's been an exciting year for me winning The Masters and I look forward to celebrating the end of the year at the Australian PGA Championship", Garcia said.

In June, Day revealed plans to play in Australia for the first time since 2013, when he won the golf World cup individual title and teams category with countryman Adam Scott.

"The Australian PGA Championship is a celebration of golf; we will be celebrating with Sergio his Masters victory, as well as the best of the Australian golf industry at the Greg Norman Medal", added Kirkman.

"I was thinking about it recently, I can't remember the last time I was in Queensland so it would be nice to be able to play the PGA Championship in my home state, close to where I have family", Day told AAP in June.
