Stenson closes out Race to Dubai with win

Henrik Stenson has become the first player to defend the DP World Tour Championship, earning him second place in The 2014 Race to Dubai, and a move to number two in the Official World Golf Rankings.  The 38-year-old from Sweden was in form all week being second in both driving distance, and driving accuracy, averaging 309.9 yards off the tee, and hitting 82.1 percent of fairways on the 7,675-yard long Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai. His scores of 68, 66, 68 and 70 gave him a two stroke win.

Stenson used a Titleist Pro V1x ball and all Callaway equipment including the X2 Hot driver, Legacy Black irons and Odyssey White Ice putter. He wore FJ Icon shoes and a FJ Pure Touch glove.

Commenting Stenson said, “It feels great. I’m exhausted to say the least. It was hot out there and tricky on the back nine. I did not play my best and had a shocking hole on eleven. I had to dig in there and wait for something to happen. I had a couple of close calls this year to get my win and it was not to be. It’s been close but eventually you get something if you stick around and I surely did that. It would be nice to have been ranked the world’s best at some point but, if I had the choice, I would go for a major championship, so I am going to try and be in good shape for them next year.”
