Aussies around the world- Weekend Preview

PGA TOUR BMW Championship- FedEx Cup playoffs- Bellerive Country Club, St Louis Missouri The third leg of the FedEx Cup play-offs heads to Bellerive with in-form Vijay Singh looking to make it his third play-off win in a row. Singh won the Barclays a fortnight ago and with the help of a scorching putter, triumphed at the DeutscheBank Championship last weekend. Hot on his heels is Sergio Garcia but Singh will take some reeling in knowing if results went his way, he could win the FedEx Cup without playing The Tour Championship. Australians in the field: Robert Allenby, Geoff Ogilvy, Aaron Baddeley, Matthew Goggin, Adam Scott and John Senden LADIES EUROPEAN TOUR Nykredit Masters, Simon s Golf Club, Denmark After a long and illustrious career, Annika Sorenstam will play in Denmark for the first time this weekend at the invitation of friend Iben Tinning.
