JOHANNESBURG -- European Tour record-breakers Matteo Manassero and Miguel Angel Jimenez will play at next month's Volvo Golf Champions in South Africa.

Italy's Manassero, the youngest winner on the tour, and Spain's Jimenez, the oldest winner, were confirmed on Tuesday for the tournament at Durban Country Club from Jan. 10-13.

India's Jeev Milkha Singh and former British Open champion Darren Clarke have also entered the third event on the 2013 Race to Dubai.

Manassero claimed the 2010 Castello Masters title aged 17. Jimenez won last month's Hong Kong Open at 48.

Ryder Cup winners Nicolas Colsaerts, Paul Casey, Peter Hanson, Paul Lawrie and Francesco Molinari were already confirmed for the Volvo Golf Champions.

The new European season begins with three successive events in South Africa, starting with this week's inaugural Nelson Mandela Championship.
