Stenson wins THE PLAYERS Championship…fully clothed

What an interesting dilemma, eh? Henrik Stenson on the 3rd hole at the World Golf Championships-CA Championship at the Doral Golf Resort and Spa in Florida hooked his drive and it landed on the bank of a creek. He had no rain gear to don – earlier in the year he had hacked out wearing his clothes and had mud all over him for the rest of the round, so his conclusion: It’s time for some full frontal nudity on the front nine.

Not exactly full.

Fellow Swede, Fanny Sunesson, has been on the tour for over 20 years – she was Nick Faldo’s longtime caddie. What are the odds of having a female caddie? There are only 2, I believe, at the present time on the PGA tour – Janet Squire being the other. Well, then there’s the Platinum Caddies – a whole different brand of female caddie.

Sure am glad it wasn’t John Daly.

Ben Curtis his playing partner yelled to Japan’s Ryuji Imada: You’ve got to see this!

Imada got to where he could see and started laughing: That’s funniest thing I’ve seen on a golf course.

Yes, he is married – to Emma Lofgren.

You’re the (naked) man!

Perhaps the water was a tad cold?

Wonder what the view was like across the creek…

Boring, isn’t it?

He ended up getting a bogey and finishing with a 3-under 69.

His thoughts after the round:

If you are saving a shot, that has to be worth taking your shirt and trousers. I’m sure I’ll hear a few comments and once the pictures get out, I’ll hear a few more, no doubt. I’ll probably take that to my grave with me. I don’t think I scared too many spectators off the course, hopefully.

He had no idea how popular the photo would become. He was asked about it after he won The Players Championship in May (fully clothed).
