Star wreck: No longer a role model

The golfer Henrik Stenson, who has chosen to become part of LIV Golf, has been dropped by the Swedish Golf Association.

– We no longer think that Henrik can be a role model for Swedish golf juniors, says Gunnar Håkansson, secretary general of the association, according to TT.

The collaboration has been discussed for several months in the association, after Henrik Stenson chose to join the Saudi Arabian-funded tournament series LIV Golf this summer.

– We have come to the conclusion that we will not renew the collaboration with Henrik in the 2023 season. The LIV tour goes against the sporting ecosystem that we believe in, says Gunnar Håkansson.

In July, 46-year-old Henrik Stenson was sacked as captain of the European Ryder Cup team for the same reason.

After the union’s announcement, Henrik Stenson himself is also out to comment on the breach.

– We thank SGF (the Swedish confederation, ed.) for the cooperation and wish them good luck in the future.

– I regret that my great commitment and my financial support through the Henrik Stenson Foundation is no longer wanted, reads a written comment to TT.

Henrik Stenson, who has previously been an ambassador for paragolf in Sweden, also writes that he will continue to be involved in Swedish golf in the future.

LIV Golf is financially supported by a public Saudi Arabian investment fund.

The criticism is, among other things, that Saudi Arabia is trying to ‘sportswash’ its international reputation.

The concept of sports laundering covers countries that try to improve their reputation by sponsoring athletes or sports teams or by holding lucrative sports events, despite the fact that the countries violate human rights in several cases.
