Graeme McDowell will play in this year's RBC Heritage and the RBC Canadian Open after joining the "RBC family".

The 33-year-old world number 15 has confirmed via Twitter that he has agreed a deal with the Royal Bank of Canada.

"Excited to be part of the @RBC_Golf family. Doing great things in golf globally. Adding RBC Heritage and RBC Canadian Open to my 2013 sched" he wrote on the social networking site.

The 2013 RBC Heritage will take place at Hilton Head from April 15-21 - the week after the Masters - while the Canadian Open will run from July 22-28 - a week after the Open Championship - at Glen Abbey Golf Club.

McDowell doesn't have the best of records at Hilton Head as he finished tied for 70th in 2005, missed the cut in 2006 and was tied 61st in 2011.

He finished joint 46th at the Canadian Open in 2002.

The Ryder Cup star ended 2012 on a high after winning Tiger Woods' World Challenge event in California for the second time.

That was his first victory since his US Open win at Pebble Beach in June 2010.
