BMW Championship to return to Chicago

The BMW Championship, one of four lucrative events in the PGA Tour's FedExCup playoff series, will return to Cog Hill Golf & Country Club outside Chicago for three consecutive years from 2009, the Tour said on Wednesday.

Although the inaugural edition was held at Cog Hill in Lemont, Illinois two months ago, the $7 million tournament will switch to Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis, Missouri for next season.

In 2010, the BMW Championship will be played at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Indiana.

"We believe this new sequence for the BMW Championship will only enhance the tremendous appeal of this great event," PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said in a statement.

"The BMW Championship will be exceptional next year at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis and then Chicago-area golf fans will enjoy four straight years of watching the world's best players through three consecutive playings."

World number one Tiger Woods clinched this year's BMW Championship by two shots en route to winning inaugural FedExCup honours and the much-trumpeted $10 million retirement deposit.

Next year's BMW Championship will be held from September 4-7, two weeks before the Ryder Cup in Louisville, Kentucky.
