I was meant to show you this a few days back, but my recent Veuve Clicquot binge fell over that particular day. Nevertheless, I found it again on my “desktop.”

Golf-StensonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Swedish strip show overshadows Woods
MIAMI, March 12 (Reuters) – Swede Henrik Stenson briefly took the limelight from Tiger Woods when he stripped down to his underwear to play a shot at the WGC-CA Championship at Doral on Thursday.
StensonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s wayward drive on the third hole landed in muddy terrain near a water hazard and he decided to get down to basics rather than play the rest of his round in muddy clothes.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I was only wearing two things when I hit the shot, my jocks and my golf glove,Ã¢â‚¬Â he told reporters.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Shirt, trousers, socks, shoes, hat, the lot was off.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Obviously, playing in Florida I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have any rain gear in the bag, so that option went out of the window and I felt that if I could hack it out, I could secure a five and that is what I did,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Stenson.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Because of the mud I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 he had no regrets about his unorthodox approach.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I felt that I would definitely save a shot by actually playing the ball. If you are saving a shot, that has to be worth taking your shirt and trousers off,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said.
But the 32-year-old said he was expecting some ribbing.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll hear a few comments and once the pictures get out IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll hear a few more no doubt.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll probably take that to the grave with me. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think I scared too many spectators off the courseÃ¢â‚¬Â¦I hope,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“You never know, I might have a new endorsement with Playgirl or something like thatÃ¢â‚¬Â.
It’s so weird, because that’s how I play golf. All the time!
did anyone get what brand of underwear he was wearing? Great “product placement!”
