Henrik Stenson is stripped of the Ryder Cup captaincy amid the rumors of him joining the LIV series. Where is the golfer right now? 

Yet another famous golfer joins the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series. The newly established golf organization has attracted a lot of great players recently as they are getting paid enormous amounts. 

In March 2022, Henrik Stenson was elected to captain the European side for the Ryder Cup scheduled for next September. However, he was dropped out of the team as the rumors of him joining the LIV series. 

What Happened To Henrik Stenson? Injured or Not

Henrik Stenson will join the LIV Invitational Golf Series, a Saudi-backed golf series. 

The news about him dropping out of the Ryder Cup captaincy surfaced on the internet. In the light of this news, the fans are wondering if the player is injured. No, the golfer is not injured. 

"In the light of decisions made by Henrik in relation to his private circumstances, it has become so much clear that he will not be able to fulfill certain obligations to Ryder Cup Europe that he had committed to giving prior to his announcement as Captain on Tuesday, March 15, 2022, and therefore not possible for him to continue in the role of Captain," Ryder Cup Europe said in a statement. 

Looking at this statement, it is clear that the rumors of him joining the LIV series are true. He was linked with the tour far before he took captaincy of Europe in March.

Many golfers, analysts, and related organizations believe that LIV events are modifying the game for their benefit. Hence, not everyone is a fan of the series. The next LIV event will be held on Donald Trump's golf course in New Jersey. 

Where Is Golfer Henrik Stenson Now? 

Henrik Stenson is currently in Europe as he was present in the recently concluded British Open. 

Also, the legendary golfer had uploaded a photo of him standing on the balcony of the Old Course Hotel, watching Cameron Smith winning the tournament. 

If the sources are to be believed, Henrik Stenson is no longer on the PGA or European tour. Along with Paul Casey, Dustin Johnson, and others, Stenson will be another name added to the list of golfers competing in the LIV series. 

Moreover, he could make his LIV Invitational debut in Bedminster from July 29. It is one of the two LIV events to be played on Donald Trump's golf course. 

Henrik Stenson Wealth And Net Worth: What Do We Know About His Family?

As per Celebrity Net Worth, Henrik Stenson has a net worth of around $25 million. 

But if he has signed for the LIV Invitational Series, his wealth will be tripled at least. The Saudi-backed golf series has all the money to spend on golfers, and it is now revolutionizing the game. 

According to several sources, a six-time major champion, Mickelson, received $200 million to join, while DeChambeau recently suggested that he got over $125 million for joining the LIV Invitational Golf Series. 

Golf isn't one of the sports known for big financial signings. It was a humble game until LIV Invitational Golf came into the picture. So, it's not surprising that many people are still against the series.
