Golfer plays third hole in his underwear

Swedish golfer Henrik Stenson had a problem -- he had hit his ball into the mud on the third hole of the PGA Doral event in Florida on Thursday. The problem was that he did not have a change of clothes. Being a quick thinker, Stenson came up with a quick solution:

"Because of the mud I couldn't really afford to play in any of my clothes as they would have been a real mess down the last six or so holes so I had no option," said Stenson after finishing on 69 in Florida.

"I was only wearing two things when I hit the shot, my jocks and my golf glove - that is the only thing that will appear in the picture aside from the golf club - just the way God created me.

"Shirt, trousers, socks, shoes, hat - the lot was off." (click on photo for full photo from Getty Images).

Stenson said he expects a ribbing when he comes back for Friday's second round, and hopes he didn't "scare too many spectators off the course." He also wondered if Playgirl would call. If they ever revive those Swedish bikini team beer commercials, Stenson can have a cameo.

In the comments section of the Deadspin story on Stenson came this:

"You never know, I might have a new endorsement with Playgirl or something like that," said Stenson.
"Mr. Stensen, Outsports is on Line 1."

Given all the grief I caused by calling Tom Brady "doughy," I'll steer clear of this one.
