HOF Stenson: Some of the best Henrik Stenson on-course moments

Henrik Stenson added to his legend on Monday in the final round of the BMW Championship, decapitating his driver after a poor tee shot the par-5 18th.

It's the latest in the all-time highlight reel of crazy things Henrik Stenson has done on the golf course, for better or worse.

Here are some others in the Henrik Stenson Hall of Fame:

Henrik Stenson stripping down to his underwear

In Round 1 of the 2009 WGC-CA Championship (now WGC-Cadillac Championship), Stenson's ball found the mud at the third hole at TPC Blue Monster at Doral. Rather than hit his second shot and get mud all over him, Stenson stripped down to his tighty-whities to hit the shot. Very practical.

The blind wedge throw at the Dubai Desert Classic

Back in 2011, when Stenson wasn't playing his best, he performed a magic trick: He made his wedge disappear in a water hazard at the Dubai Desert Classic after a bad chip shot.

That time Henrik Stenson interviewed himself

Obviously this didn't happen on the course, but Stenson was unbelievably hilarious when he interviewed himself in 2011 for the European Tour website. It was an absolute gem of cinematography.

Stenson also says he's a great dancer which, given his height and demeanor, seems awful implausible.

Holing out a bunker shot at TPC Boston & the Deutsche Bank Championship

Henrik Stenson isn't all anger and deadpan. He's a brilliant golfer, too, as evidenced by this holed-out bunker shot en route to a win at the Deutsche Bank Championship two weeks ago.
