Ernie Els committed to The Honda Classic on Monday, giving the tournament two of the four major champions from 2012 with defending champion and PGA Championship winner Rory McIlroy already in the field.
Els, who won The Honda Classic in 2008, was an improbable winner at last year's British Open amid Adam Scott's collapse over the final four holes.
Lee Westwood and Graeme McDowell are also among the early commitments to The Honda Classic, Feb. 23 to March 3 at PGA National Resort and Spa.
