Henrik Stenson wins the Radiosportens Jerringpris
February 24, 2014
We congratulate Henrik Stenson on the two well-deserved awards he received at the prestigious Swedish Sports Awards for his achievements in 2013. The expert jury named Henrik the Male Sports Athlete of the Year. But perhaps even more exciting is that Henrik also received the Radiosportens Jerringpris, an award for the top sporting achievement of the year as voted for by the Swedish public. When interviewed in SVT Nyhetsmorgon the day after the gala, Henrik was asked:
”Emotionally, if you were to compare this with rolling the last winning putt in the PGA playoffs?”
”Well, it’s different. You can’t really compare it, but you can feel more nervous at a gala when you have to go up and hold a speech in front of everybody. It’s different, for sure, but you feel the extra tension when the announcements are being made”, Henrik said.
Already in the fall of 2013, we were pleased to announce that Henrik is going to play the Nordea Masters 2014. Welcome to follow Henrik’s achievements during the Nordea Masters at PGA Nationals May 29-June 1.
