Henrik Stenson Underwear: Swedish Hunk Plays Golf in His Boxer Briefs. Move over Tiger Woods, our new golfing hero is this Swedish golfer Henrik Stenson. How can we not like him when he goes around golfing in his really sexy white Bjorn Borg boxers. Why did he do it? [Want more Hot Swedish Men?]
Well, let us have Henrik tell us the reason himself (via Daily Mail):
‘Because of the mud I couldn’t really afford to play in any of my clothes as they would have been a real mess down the last six or so holes so I had no option,’ Stenson said after his round.
‘I was only wearing two things when I hit the shot, my jocks and my golf glove – that is the only thing that will appear in the picture aside from the golf club – just the way God created me.
‘Shirt, trousers, socks, shoes, hat, the lot was off. I just remembered I didn’t have my rain gear so I didn’t have any choice,’ he said. ‘I felt like I was definitely going to save a shot by actually playing the ball so that was the only decision I had to make.
‘If you are saving a shot, that has to be worth taking your shirt and trousers.
‘I’m sure I’ll hear a few comments and once the pictures get out, I’ll hear a few more no doubt. I’ll probably take that to my grave with me. I don’t think I scared too many spectators off the course, hopefully.’
Stenson also believes he might have opened up a new avenue for sponsorships following his impromptu strip.
‘Absolutely, you never know, after this I might have a new endorsement with PlayGirl or something like that.’
