Sun City success the aim for Stenson

12th September 2019, 18:36 by Bobbie Jackson

Former champion Henrik Stenson is hoping to enjoy further success in South Africa at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in November.

Stenson hasn't featured at the competition since 2016 but he returns to the event as he looks to boost his chances in the Race To Dubai standings.

The Swede lifted the trophy in Sun City in 2006, becoming the first man from his country to achieve that feat, and he is hoping to get his hands on the title once again.

Stenson said: "I've always enjoyed playing in the Nedbank Golf Challenge and I'm glad that I'm able to get back, especially as Sun City celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.

"The last time I played in 2016 it was part of a pretty memorable year for me, and it would be great to mark my return by getting my hands on the trophy again."

His last appearance came in a very successful year as he won The Open and the BMW International Open, while also finishing second at the Nedbank Golf Challenge.
