Associated Press: ‘Stenson Awards’

IN A TUESDAY GOLF COLUMN, the Associated Press wrote about the “Stenson Awards.” They were  referring to Henrik Stenson, of course, who, as I was reminded, had a phenomenal year.

What did 40-year-old Henrik win?

European Tour Player of the Year.

The Race to Dubai.

A silver medal at the Rio Olympics.

The Open Championship.

Golf Writers Trophy (awarded by Britain’s Association of Golf Writers).

The BMW International Open.

As you might recall, Stenson set a major championship record of 264 at the Open Championship, closing with a 63 in a stirring duel with Phil Mickelson.

Stenson said, “I’ll never grow tired of being weighed down by trophies.”
