Sacked Ryder Cup captain Henrik Stenson is set to play on the DP World Tour for the first time since defecting to LIV Golf.
According to the Telegraph’s James Corrigan, the Swede will be in the field for the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.
It will be Stenson’s first appearance on the tour since he joined LIV last summer.
He was removed as Ryder Cup skipper in July just three months after he was appointed following his switch to the Saudi-backed rebel tour.
The 46-year-old’s defection came despite him revealing he had signed a contract promising he would not join the upstart league for the duration of his captaincy.
Stenson’s decision to play in Abu Dhabi will pit him against Luke Donald, the man who replaced him as Ryder Cup captain ahead of this year’s match in Rome.
After being appointed, Donald insisted he would not “do a Henrik” by joining LIV.
Stenson has previously said he wants to be “treated fairly” amid uncertainty ahead of next month’s court hearing which will decide whether the DP World Tour has the power to ban the rebels from its events.
