Stenson wins LIV Golf event


Greg Norman (CEO, LIV Golf Investments) handing over the winning trophy to Henrik Stenson

Henrik Stenson, the 2016 British Open champion, who was sensationally stripped of his European Ryder Cup captaincy last week for joining LIV Golf shot 64-69-69 (11-under 202) to register a wire-to-wire win in his LIV Golf debut at the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey.


Matthew Wolff shot a final round 64 to finish tied-2nd with Dustin Johnson

Stenson entered the day with a three-stroke lead and was never seriously challenged during the final round. Matthew Wolff made a charge with a seven-under 64, but that was only good enough for a tie for second with former World No 1 Dustin Johnson at 9-under. 

Stenson’s USD 4 million winner’s cheque is by far the biggest payday of his long and illustrious career. 

In the team event the American team consisting of captain Dustin Johnson, former Masters winner Patrick Reed, Talor Gooch & Pat Perez took the winning cheque of US$ 3mn.
