Stenson wary of wrist injury risk ahead of Nedbank Challenge in South Africa

Johannesburg, Dec 3: World number three Henrik Stenson still has concerns about his long-standing wrist problem as the Swede prepares to return to competitive action at this week’s Nedbank Challenge in South Africa, according to reports.

According to Sport24, Stenson was troubled by the injury in the last few weeks of the 2012-13 European Tour’s season-ending Final Series but managed to finish the campaign on top of the money list.

He said that he has had a specialist looking at the problem and there are still minor issues but he is hoping to be fine this week after 10 days of rest.

Stenson won the South African Open a year ago but had to withdraw from last month’s event, the report said.

The Nedbank Challenge in Sun City starts on Thursday, the report added. (ANI)
