Stenson's MRI shows wear and tear on wrist
Wednesday, November 6, 2013
Henrik Stenson is in the middle of a seven-week stretch playing period and that is still the plan after having an MRI on his swollen wrist and forearm.
On Oct. 22, Stenson told reporters in China that his swollen wrist and forearm was “very worrying.”
The MRI showed that nothing was wrong in his wrist and it was just “some wear and tear over long-time golfing.”
“It’s more monitoring it,” Stenson said on Wednesday at the Turkish Airlines Open. “I got this kind of cone, that kind of wedge down a little bit and it gets pretty painful and restricts the movement in the wrist. It’s keeping it mobile, some pills every now and again, and quite a lot of icing.”
Stenson said he had a bit of a hiccup in last week’s Pro-Am, but during play last week it was alright. He finished T-31 at the WGC–HSBC Champions in Shanghai.
Stenson, who won the FedExCup in September, will have a week off after the South African Open and then play in two more events. He leads the European Tour’s Race to Dubai rankings by 145,865 points over Graeme McDowell.
