Henrik Stenson defends title in Dubai

Sweden’s Henrik Stenson successfully defended his title at the DP World Tour Championship, the season-ending tournament on the European Tour in Dubai, on Sunday.

Stenson, who ranks fourth in the world, birdied the last two holes for a two-under par 70 in the final round, finishing on 16-under par 272, AFP reports.

Stenson beat three of his Ryder Cup teammates - world number one Rory McIlroy (68), number seven Justin Rose (69) and number 22 Victor Dubuisson (68) .

The victory was Stenson's first title of the year and is expected to take him back to world number two behind McIlroy when the new rankings are released Monday.
