HENRIK STENSON suffered a season-ending rib injury whilst being suspended in the air posing as a superhero.
He may have been Superman at the 2016 Open Championship, but this caped crusade was not quite the setting you’d expect to find the genial Swede in.

It was, in fact, all down to a promotion stunt at the recent WGC-HSBC Championship.
And Stenson’s injury could lead to golf’s main Tours regulating ‘wacky’ photo stunts in the future.
Stenson needs an MRI scan to establish the true extent of his problem but he’s definitely out of the last two weeks of the season.
It seems he was annoyed at being asked to take part in the stunt, which also featured world No 1 Dustin Johnson hanging from the ceiling in a harness.
