Henrik Stenson insists close-season knee surgery will not affect his chances of winning this weekend’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship. The World No6 is a two-time runner up in the capital and has set his sights on making it third-time lucky in 2016. He joins headline names such as Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Ricky Fowler at the tournament and believes a good start here will set him up for a big year in golf. "We've got this early part of the year to really put things in place and set ourselves up for a really busy 2016 ahead," said Stenson. "There is nothing better in my book than to be here where there is good weather, good golf courses with good practice facilities and good competition."
