After being relieved of the position of captain of the Europe team at the Ryder Cup 2023, for accepting the court of the Arab Super League, Stenson dreams of the feat at Bedminster. The 46-year-old from Gothenburg, silver medalist at the Rio de Janeiro Games 2016 (the year he won The Open), in the USA sees the finish line in an event that guarantees, to the individual race champion, a prize pool of 4 million dollars .

In the team tournament, the “4 Aces GC” team made up of Reed, Johnson, Pat Perez and Gooch with a total of “-20” is on the run and has a six-stroke advantage over the “Majesticks GC” led by Lee Westwood , with Stenson, Ian Poulter and Sam Horsfield.

Henrik Olof Stenson (born 5 April 1976 in Gothenburg) is a Swedish golfer, part of the PGA Tour and the Nationwide Tour.

In 2016, the year in which he also won the Olympic silver medal in Rio de Janeiro behind Justin Rose, Stenson won the Open Championship played on the Royal Troon Golf Club, becoming the first Swede to lift the Claret Jug: thanks to a final round extraordinary, embellished with ten birdies and finished in 63, had the better of a rival of great value, the American Phil Mickelson, over whom he prevailed with a three-stroke advantage. The final score of 264 (68, 65, 68 and 63) was well below the par of the Royal Troon 20 (the score of 4 laps cannot be compared with the Par of a course).

Henrik competed at the 2016 Summer Olympics, finishing 2nd in the men’s singles stroke, and winning a silver medal.
