The reigning champion at Augusta National had already entered the Australian PGA Championship and Australian Masters - and he is also expected to compete in the World Cup in Melbourne.
This would bring his total number of tournaments on home soil to four in successive weeks.
The world No 4 said in a statement: "Winning the national Open is the title every Australian golfer wants.
"I am sure the Sydney sporting public will come in great numbers to support the event. I look forward to competing and celebrating with them during the week."
The Australian Open is being played at Royal Sydney Golf Club, starting on November 28.
