You may recall the publicity stunt in which Henrik Stenson was hoisted airborne while donning a red cape before last fall’s WGC-HSBC Champions tournament in Shanghai – and the kerfuffle that ensued when Stenson cryptically suggested the photo shoot might have been to blame for a rib injury that prompted his withdrawal from two subsequent tournaments (he later backtracked from that suggestion).
Well, that experience apparently hasn’t kept Stenson from throwing caution to the wind when it comes to pre-tournament stunts. Check out this video of the world No. 9 aboard a camel in Abu Dhabi:
Note that Rory McIlroy, who’s coming off a rib injury of his own, casually saunters away after glancing at the spectacle. Smart move, Rory.
