Henrik Stenson takes greatest post-surgery selfie ever

December 09, 2015

Henrik Stenson underwent a planned right knee surgery on Wednesday. And judging by the look he has in this photo he shared following the procedure, the pain meds are working well.

The Swede will end 2015 as the fifth-ranked golfer in the world after another stellar season, but oh, how close he was to having an even better campaign. Stenson posted six runner-up finishes in his final 20 tournaments, including three during the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

That's a lot of painful close calls, but a lot of cash as well -- about $10 million in fact. Yeah, surgery or not, we'd be smiling too.
