The PGA Tour was in Boston over the weekend, and the eventual winner of the latest tour playoff tournament did something that will surely make Bostonians proud. Deutsche Bank Championship winner Henrik Stenson reportedly donated $25,000 of his weekend winnings to the One Fund to help victims and families of April’s attacks on the Boston Marathon. Golfer and analyst Paul Azinger, a Massachusetts native himself, tweeted the news Monday, and Stenson also talked about it after winning the tournament Monday at TPC Boston in Nortion. “We are all wearing this ribbon today and this week, and I just felt like if I have a nice day today,” Stenson said, according to the Boston Herald. “I want to give something back.” Wonderful gesture by @henrikstenson. He is donating $25,000 of his tournament earnings to #bostonstrong.— Paul Azinger (@PaulAzinger) September 03, 2013 Filed under: Boston, Golf, Headlines
