Stenson Sunesson Junior Challenge
Henrik Stenson and Fanny Sunesson was a successful team on the golf course during many years. Now, the duo invites the best junior players in the Nordic countries to play in the Stenson Sunesson Junior Challenge at Barsebäck Golf & Country Club, 4-6 July 2018 with practice round on the 2nd and special activities on the 3rd.
In 1989 the world’s best player, Nick Faldo, asked Fanny to be his caddie. Five months later Faldo had won both The Masters and The Open with Fanny on the bag. This was the beginning of a long and successful career of caddying. In 2007 she started caddying for Henrik Stenson and together they won The Players Championship in 2009. Fanny retired from caddying in 2012, while Henrik remains on top of his career with a win at The Open Championship in 2016 being his greatest achievement.
“Fantastic to be involved in junior golf and this is the perfect way of giving back!“
“It’s nice to share our experiences and to see the quality of the young golfers.”
Fanny will be on site during the whole tournament and is in charge of the course set up. Henrik will be on site on and off during the week.
