Henrik Stenson at the Wyndham Championship

Dubai, UAE, August 24, 2017:  Henrik Stenson breaks tournament record and secures his first victory of the 2017 season at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, US, on Sunday 20th August. With four birdies on the last six holes and a final day score of 64, Henrik finished on 22-under par to take his 6th PGA Tour title. This makes him the most decorated male Swedish player on the American circuit. 

On the way to his 20th professional win, Henrik took his driver out of the bag and only used his 3- and 4-wood or long irons off the tee. After Ollie Schniederjans birdied holes 17 and 18 in an impressive manner to finish on 21-under, Henrik demonstrated excellent composure and holed a remarkable 30-foot putt on hole 17 followed by par on the final hole to take the trophy. 

It is Stenson's first victory since winning The Open Championship in July 2016 in an unforgettable battle against Phil Mickelson. Thanks to this, the Audemars Piguet ambassador boosted his chances for the FedEx Playoffs moving from 75th to 23rd place going into the Northern Trust.  

'It's certainly a good time to start firing,' Stenson said. 'We know the kind of damage you can do in the playoffs. ... If you get hot and keep on playing well, you have a chance to challenge.'

This title is the result of continuous hard work and incredible passion for the game. Breaking the tournament and course record this weekend Henrik Stenson exemplifies Audemars Piguet's brand philosophy “To break the rules, you must first master them”. He is in good company inside the Audemars Piguet golf ambassadors Dream Team with Ben An, Darren Clarke, Paul Dunne, Branden Grace, Emiliano Grillo, Miguel Ángel Jiménez, Andrew Johnston, Romain Langasque, Ian Poulter, Vijay Singh, Andy Sullivan, Peter Uihlein, Lee Westwood, Bernd Wiesberger and Danny Willett.
