When the Ryder Cup is held in Rome next year, Stenson will be the first Swedish captain of team Europe. It is widely regarded as the sport’s most prestigious position but is notoriously unpaid.

The 45-year-old, who missed the cut at the Open in St Andrews last week, has reportedly agreed to a deal worth up to $40 million with LIV, the Saudi breakaway tournament. However, a clause in Stenson’s Ryder Cup contract is believed to prohibit him from participating in the breakaway.
