Henrik Stenson to miss rest of European

Tour season with rib injury
Henrik Stenson will miss the remainder of the European Tour season with a rib injury.
Stenson suffered a bruised rib in a promotion on the eve of the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai last month before bravely finishing joint runner-up behind England's Justin Rose.
The Swede, however, aggravated the injury during this week's Turkish Airlines Open won again by Rose and this was reflected in shooting a disappointing four-under par tally on the Regnun Carya course in Antalya.
The problem has ruled Stenson out of the season closing Nedbank Challenge in South Africa and the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.
Stenson said: "I have been feeling it when I swing so it has been rough this week and while I was not 100% last week, I guess the travel and the way things progressed it started getting worse rather than better."
He is hoping now to return at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas at the end of the month.
