SUN CITY, South Africa – Ten days away from golf was just about enough for Henrik Stenson to get his "funky" right wrist back to being close to healthy.
Stenson knows he needs more time to recover fully, but when he's in this kind of form it's easy to understand why the Swede doesn't want to slow down.
The hottest golfer in the world is returning after a brief end-of-season break for this week's Nedbank Golf Challenge at Sun City, hoping to continue the kind of play that earned him both the FedExCup and the European Tour money title this year.
"It's going to take some golfing to keep this up, what I managed to achieve this year," Stenson said Wednesday at the casino resort in northern South Africa. "It's been a dream year and a fantastic season for me. I'm still having little niggles, but it (the wrist) still seems to be fine to play and hit. I hope we can keep my body together.
"This is my 30th event this year and I'm in serious need of rest, but we'll try to mobilize for the last little bit."
