Henrik Stenson Stripes for the Game of GolfMarch 14th, 2009 - 12:37 am ICT by GD
The Swede golfer, Henrik Stenson took the sport of golfing to a new height on the opening round of the CA Championship, when he stripped down to his underpants to make a shot. Altogether he made 69 shots in the opening day, for 68 shots he was dressed.
Stenson’s wayward tee shot on the third hole of per-4, landed in a muddy terrain beside a pool of water. Rather than take the risk of playing the rest of the rounds with muddy cloths, Stenson came with the only alternative.
One by one, he began to peel off his clothes, starting with his shoes, his socks followed by his shirt and slacks.
“Just the way God created me,” Stenson said later. We didn’t know God had created Stenson with a pair of knickers, a pair of golf gloves and a handful of wedge as well.
Anyway, Stenson feeling lighter was able to hack the ball out of the mud. Then he got dressed and got on with the job that hand. At the end of the day he was four shots off the lead of Doral, but this news was nothing compared to the news he made by doing a striptease on the golf course and that also while he was at play. Almost everyone he met wanted to talk about his now infamous striptease.
“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,” was what Stenson had to say, about his stripping escapade.
