Spieth, Stenson penalised two-strokes for hitting off wrong tee

Jordan Spieth and Henrik Stenson laughed later about hitting from the wrong tee, but it was clear things weren’t so happy when it happened.

In the first group out, Jordan Speith and Henrik Stenson just played from the same teeing area at the ninth hole that they had all week.

The problem was that the tournament organisers had switched up the tee boxes for the final round of the Hero World Challenge, and the pair weren’t really paying attention.

It cost both of the “only two-strokes”, as Stenson remarked later in a funny press conference where each player did well to hide their anger.
