Titleist Pro V1x golf ball loyalist Henrik Stenson earned his second consecutive DP World Tour Championship crown, carding a final round of 70 to finish with a 16-under-par 272 victory total.
It was clutch play down the stretch that propelled Stenson to successfully defend his title as he closed with back-to-back birdies on 17 and 18.
"I didn't give up. I was hanging in there and made a couple important par putts on 12 and 16. Then I hit it to a foot on 17 and hit a good, solid wedge from 125 (yards) on 18," said Stenson.
With the back-to-back titles under his belt, Stenson is already looking forward to making it a three-peat next year.
"It was such a great place for me to win here last year, so to come back and successfully defend is very pleasing. I'll be back and try to make it three wins in a row next year."
We look forward to it, Henrik! Great playing.
