Henrik Stenson was stripped of his Ryder Cup captaincy in July for the opportunity to play in LIV Golf. It’s a decision that’s working out for him so far.
Entering Sunday’s deciding Round 3 at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., Stenson holds a three-stroke lead over Dustin Johnson, putting himself in prime position to take home his first LIV Golf victory in his first LIV Golf event.
Stenson posted a 69 in Round 2 after an excellent 64 in Round 1 to put himself in the chair entering Day 3. Johnson matched Stenson on Saturday, shooting a 69 of his own. Patrick Reed, Carlos Ortiz and Talor Gooch all enter the final round with matching scores of five-under.
The Sporting News is covering updates, highlights and more from Sunday’s deciding third round of LIV’s event in Bedminster.
