Golf stunt clampdown after Stenson injury
”Wacky” pre-tournament photo stunts have come under fire following a suspected injury to Henrik Stenson while he was being suspended in the air posing as a superhero.
The rib injury looks to be serious, and Stenson could be out for the rest of the season. The promotion at the recent HSBC WGC Champions was uttered as the cause of the complaint.
It has also been claimed that, not only was the Shanghai stunt to blame, but that Stenson himself was annoyed at being persuaded to do it in the first place.
It is understood that other high-profile golfers refused to participate in the escapade, which also featured world No.1 Dustin Johnson hanging from the ceiling in a harness.
"I was not 100 per cent last week, but I guess the travel and the way things progressed, it just got worse," Stenson said after his disappointing tie for 35th in Antalya. "It's not been good, and obviously I haven't been able to do myself justice in terms of the golf."
When quizzed how he sustained the injury, Stenson remained vague but said: "I'm no superman even though certain people thought I was superman. If you saw the promotion in Shanghai, you know what I mean."
