Why isn't there anyone like this on the course when I play golf?
This was Henrik Stenson whose ball finished up in a water hazard on thick mud. Eager not to drop a shot and to protect his clothes, Stenson stripped down to his boxers and his glove, hacked the ball out and finished with a bogey five and his calves covered in gunge.
“Because of the mud I couldn’t really afford to play in any of my clothes as they would have been a real mess down the last six or so holes, so I had no option,” the world No 7 said. “I don’t think I scared too many spectators off the course, hopefully.”
Stenson believes he may have opened a new avenue for sponsorships after his impromptu strip show. “You never know, after this I might have a new endorsement with Playgirl [magazine] or something like that.”
