Stenson’s Claret Jug bucket list wish

Defending champion Henrik Stenson told reporters that if he wins the Open Championship for the second time he would skydive with the Claret Jug and tick it off his bucket list.

Since last year's Open victory the 41-year-old Swede has lived life to the fullest, even taking the Claret Jug jet-skiing, and he arrived for his Royal Birkdale practice session on Tuesday driving a futuristic car.

"I've made an official promise that if I ever win the claret jug again, I'm going skydiving with it,” Stenson told reporters. 

"And I don’t know which is going to be harder, winning the claret jug again or going skydiving afterwards because that thought scares me a little bit. 

"It won't stop me from trying to win it, though."
