HSBC-sponsored golf tournaments provide some hilarious pre-event photo opportunities. 
Well, add "camel rides" to the list.
Here's video of 2016 Open Champion Henrik Stenson at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship on Tuesday, getting a camel ride:
Interestingly, it was Stenson himself who was less than pleased with a photo-op at the HSBC Champions event in China last November.
It was there that Stenson hinted he may have suffered a rib injury caused by the cables he was dangling from in a promotional shoot.
"I am not Superman given certain people thought I was Superman," Stenson said at the time. "If you saw the promotion in Shanghai, you know what I mean."
A week later, Stenson backed off the comments in an Instagram post:
On Tuesday, it would seem, "The Iceman," just couldn't say "no" to the camel ride.
But, come on. How often do you get to ride a camel on a plush fairway?
