Henrik Stenson will be eager to emulate the great Tiger Woods by successfully defending the Hero World Challenge.
The Swedish star is currently placed 182 in the Official World Golf Rankings, but he has the ability to win this year's tournament. 
Stenson has won prestigious tournaments around the world including the Players Championship, the World Cup, Tour Championship and South African Open.

The two-time European Tour Golfer of the Year has also won the Open Championship,  the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai and Nedbank Golf Challenge.
In December 2019, Stenson won the Hero World Challenge by one stroke over Jon Rahm and he also became the first Swedish player to win the event.
It was also his first tournament win in more than two years having finished tied for fifth place at the Masters Tournament.
Since winning the 2019 Hero World Challenge, Stenson has failed to win a professional tournament and he will be desperate to end his trophy drought in The Bahamas.

Stenson recently opened about his eagerness to get back into the top 10 in the world rankings. 
"It's down, but it's not a disaster. I can compete with the best, and I guess I have showed that," Stenson said. 
“It’s always tough for a golfer to go through long periods of time without playing well. It’s been frustrating but I’m working my way back. 
Stenson will become the fourth golfer to win the Hero World Challenge for the second time if he clinches this week's trophy.
Davis Love III and Graeme McDowell have won the tournament twice each, while Woods boasts of a record five titles.
