Stenson’s wrist still a concern
Race to Dubai leader Henrik Stenson is set to take it easy in the build-up to the DP World Tour Championship as he looks to give his injured wrist more time to heal.
The Swede has struggled with the injury since September and has on several occasions warned that he could be forced to pull out of events in order to give his wrist more time to rest.
Although he has soldiered on, he is likely to be forced to skip the pro-am event ahead of this week’s season-ending $8 million tournament in Dubai.
“I’m going to speak to my physio and see what he wants,” Stenson told reporters on Sunday. “Maybe if I pull out of the pro-am and give it two days of full rest, maybe I can do a light practice session on Wednesday and go.
He added: “It’s obviously going to affect my preparations but it’s been like that for the last three weeks so I’ve just got to do the best I can.
“Long-term I hope I’m not damaging anything that’s going to take longer to get fixed later on.”
Stenson leads the European money-list by 213,000 euros ($284,300) over Justin Rose with Graeme McDowell, Ian Poulter and Jamie Donaldson next on the list.
