FOCUS in the golf world turns to Asia this week where events sanctioned by the US PGA Tour and European Tour face off – at least symbolically (and on Australian TV schedules) – in Malaysia and China.
The 2012 CIMB Classic at The MINES Resort in Kuala Lumpar is a US PGA Tour “Featured Event” that will see last weekend’s winner of the Perth International, Bo Van Pelt, defend the title he won here last year against a quality field that includes fellow Americans Tiger Woods, Jason Dufner, Nick Watney and Ben Crane.
Aussies in the field here include John Senden, Marc Leishman, Marcus Fraser, Greg Chalmers and Scott Hend.
This event starts on Fox Sports 2 live in Australia on Thursday 3pm to 7pm.
Starting just half an hour later on Fox Sports 3 (3.30pm – 7.30pm) is the European Tour sanctioned BMW Masters live from China. (Click here for preview: Leaderboard.)
