Stenson sweats over injury as McDowell prowls

EUROPEAN money-list leader Henrik Stenson is concerned about a nagging wrist problem ahead of this week's season-ending $8million DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

The 37-year-old Swede has been troubled by the injury for three weeks but aims to be ready for the first round on Thursday.

"I'm going to speak to my physio and see what he wants," Stenson said after finishing in a tie for seventh place behind Turkish Airlines Open champion Victor Dubuisson of France.

Stenson, looking to be crowned Europe's number one golfer for the first time, goes into the season finale holding a lead of €213,000 over Justin Rose at the top of the money list.

Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell is third and hopes to overhaul the Swede in Dubai.
