When the Ryder Cup is held in Rome next year, Stenson will be the first Swedish captain of the European team. It is widely regarded as the most prestigious position in sport but is notoriously unpaid.

The 45-year-old, who missed the cut at the St Andrews Open last week, would have accepted a deal worth up to $ 40 million with LIV, the Saudi separatist tournament. However, a clause in Stenson’s Ryder Cup contract is believed to prohibit him from participating in the escape.

In March of this year, Stenson, the 2016 Open champion who helped Europe win three of his five Ryder Cups as a player, including the home tournament final at Le Golf National in 2018, agreed to become the Ryder Cup captain.

On Wednesday, LIV Golf announced that 45 of the 48 players competed on Donald Trump’s golf course in New Jersey.

Details on Henrik Stenson’s net worth

According to riccogorilla.com, Henrik Stenson’s net worth is approximately $ 25 million. However, Henrik himself did not mention his bank account.

At $ 31,807,607, he is ranked 31st on the PGA Tour, but that doesn’t include the $ 10 million bonus he received for winning the FedEx Cup in 2013.

In 2009, he won the Players Championship with four hits and earned $ 1,710,000. In 2016, Stenson won the Open Championship and the £ 1,175,000 first prize.
