Stenson leaves damaged locker in wake at BMW

RSS

Apparently Henrik Stenson's displays of frustration in Chicago extended beyond a smashed driver.

After the Swede broke his club Monday in the 18th fairway during the final round of the BMW Championship, he went on to damage his locker at Conway Farms Golf Club, according to a Golf.com report.

The damage, which included a broken shelf and the door to the locker ripped off entirely, was reportedly confirmed to be the handiwork of Stenson by his agent, R.J. Nemer, who termed the incident 'frustration that manifested itself.' Nemer added that Stenson paid for the damage inflicted and 'apologized to the appropriate parties,' though a total tab for the outburst was unclear.

Two weeks after winning the Deutsche Bank Championship, Stenson struggled to a tie for 33rd last week in Chicago, including a 3-over 74 in Monday's rain-delayed finale.

At second in the overall FedEx Cup standings, Stenson controls his own fate this week and will win the season-long title with a victory at the Tour Championship, where he will play the opening round alongside current No. 1 Tiger Woods. Outside of Monday's struggles, the Swede has largely been on a tear this summer, with his recent win in Boston capping a stretch of four top-three finishes across five total starts.
