Henrik Stenson's rental home burglarized during British Open

21 Juillet 2017

Defending British Open champion victor Henrik Stenson had his rental home near Royal Birkdale burglarized this week, he told reporters in a statement on Friday.

Stenson shot a one-under 69 on Thursday in the company of Jordan Spieth and Kim Si-woo.

One theory is that the culprits were alerted to the golf ace's temporary "home" by watching a promotional video of Stenson returning the trophy in a futuristic Mercedes. Ben Curtis of the United States was the last player to win the Claret Jug on his debut, in 2003 at Royal St George's.

Stenson, who luckily returned the Claret Jug on Monday, said that the burglars took several valuable personal items left in the house, including all of his clothing for the week.

AlphaBay et Hansa ont été fermés par les autorités
Son prédécesseur Silk Road ("la route de la soie"), dix fois moins gros qu'AlphaBay , avait déjà été fermé par les autorités en 2013.

Stenson was informed after his round finished that everything he left behind in the house was gone, including his supply of clothes for the week.

Stenson won The Open past year in a total shootout with Phil Mickelson. Stenson had returned the claret jug he claimed at Royal Troon last year earlier in the week, but the 40-year-old said he had some "valuable personal items" taken, including his clothes.

"We were very sorry to hear about the burglary and have offered any assistance we can provide to Henrik and his family", said a spokesman for the R&A.

Stenson had just started his second round Friday when the statement was issued.
