According to my contacts on Tour, there was a right royal cock up a couple of weeks back at the HSBC in China when a photoshoot went wrong causing Henrik Stenson to suffer a rib injury which will end his season.

The annual crazy WGC-HSBC Champions photoshoot was cranked up a notch this year with players asked to suspend from wires and act like Superman.  Several players refused and Stenson was also apparently not convinced but was cajoled into participating.

While hanging down by cables the harness dug into Henrik's midriff and injured his ribs.  He had an MRI and will now miss the big money Nedbank Challenge and DP World to end the European Tour season.

Officially Henrik did not go on record blaming HSBC or the Tour but did say "I'm no superman even though certain people thought I was superman. If you saw the promotion in Shanghai, you know what I mean."

More as it emerges.
