Henrik Stenson understandably felt “sad” after dumping his famed 3-wood in September after a successful eight-year run. But unlike most people after going through a breakup—especially such a public one— the Swedish major champ has needed little time to move on and find another compatible match.
Armed with his new
love Callaway at this week’s WGC-HSBC Champions, Stenson hit one of Thursday’s most spectacular shots on the par-5 second hole. Check out this 3-wood laser that comes close to dropping for an albatross:
Pretty sporty, huh? Stenson only managed to shoot even par over the other 17 holes and is in a tie for 26th place at two under, six shots behind Day 1 leader Haotong Li. However, Henrik was very pleased with his opening-round eagle, and pointed out that he used the 3-wood off the tee on No. 2 as well.
Aww. All that’s missing is a heart emoji. Our best wishes to the happy new couple.
