Stenson given monthly award

Henrik Stenson has been named Race to Dubai golfer of the month for November.

The 37-year-old capped a superb season by secured top spot in the 2013 Race courtesy of victory in the DP World Tour Championship on 17 November.

The Swede becomes only the second player, after Welshman Ian Woosnam in 1987, to win three of the monthly awards in a single season.

Stenson's performance two weeks ago was hugely impressive as he stormed to a six-shot win after carding a record 25-under at the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai.

He is now ranked third in the world, behind American Tiger Woods and Australia's Adam Scott.
