Henrik Stenson’s al fresco episode on Doral’s third hole on Thursday when the Swede striped down to his unmentionables to hit a shot from one of the Blue Monster’s murky watering holes was a surreal highlight.
“I was only wearing two things when I hit the shot, my jocks and my golf glove. Just the way God created me,” Stenson said.
Asked if he would have sacrificed similar embarrassment, Phil Mickelson sighed: “I’m not sure I would. I have a feeling I would hear about it a few times.”
One longtime observer nailed it early Friday: “Fanny (Sunesson, Stenson’s caddie), two words – rain gear.”
