Rory McIlroy will be part of a quality field that will assemble for the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth next month and has set his sights on glory.

The Northern Irishman had a hugely disappointing 2013, which has resulted in him slipping outside of the World’s top 10, but his form has picked up this year.

The 24-year-old, who is now ranked 11th, has had three top 10 finishes in the five European Tour events he has played in this year and his game is looking in much better shape.

McIlroy has today confirmed that he will play in the PGA Championship, but admits Wentworth has not been the happiest of hunting grounds for him.

However he says his game is in a good place and he looking forward to the tournament that runs from May 22-25.

“I have been a little hit and miss at Wentworth, but I think this year my game is in much better shape,” said McIlroy, who won the US Open in 2011 and US PGA Championship in 2012.

“Some of the greats of the game have won the title over the years and it would certainly be nice to join them on the Championship’s 60th anniversary.”

Matteo Manassero won the tournament last year but will not be there to defend his title.

However the field is packed with quality and McIlroy will join Justin Rose, Ian Poulter, two-time runner-up Lee Westwood, Sergio Garcia and last year’s Race to Dubai winner Henrik Stenson at the Surrey course.
