Aussies around the world-Weekend Review

PGA TOUR– Deutsche Bank Championship, Boston. Stuart Appleby and John Senden were the highest placed Australians at 6-under (T33) at the conclusion of the Deutsche Bank Championship in Boston. Nick O&aposHern and Robert Allenby were the next best at 4-under (T44) but proved no match for Vijay Singh. Using perhaps the hottest putter in the northern hemisphere, the Fijian made it back-to-back FedEx Cup play off wins and stormed into number 3 on the world rankings. After a top four finish at the Barclays, Matthew Goggin struggled and failed to make the cut. Click here for the leaderboard LADIES EUROPEAN TOUR-Finnair Masters, Helsinki, Finland.
