Miller, who won $15,000 for his third place victory at the Met Open in August, got in the championship via sponsor's exemption. It's his first official start on any Tour. He'll be paired with Ricardo Santos of Spain (ranked 192 in the Official World Golf Rankings) in the first round at 9:22 a.m. (4:22 a.m. our time).

Miller has also proven that his game adapts well to links golf, finishing T4 at both the Lytham Trophy and Irish Amateur in 2012, and collecting a T3 finish at the 2013 Portuguese Amateur. He also helped the MGA team claim the Carey Cup for the first time ever on Irish soil last April.
