Hi, I'm Henrik Stenson,
and Golf Digest have challenged me
to give Becca a lesson in Swedish,
and she doesn't understand a word,
so let's see how this goes.
[Becca] Hey, I'm Becca.
So thanks for giving me a lesson.
I'm desperate for some help.
I'm obsessed with golf, but I'm terrible.
Do you think you can, maybe, in five minutes,
make me go pro?
Oh, good, so I'll be going pro in 2017,
I think that's what he said.
That sounds good.
Okay, this is my dress, I have that good spine tilt.
[Becca] I'm just not, I'm just gonna go for it, I guess.
I think he thinks I'm doing a good job.
[Becca] What'd you think?
Oh, I think he likes this, okay.
What about here?
Should I show you where I normally stop?
My feet aren't straight.
My feet aren't straight, I think I got it.
I think I maybe swung too big or something.
Oh, he thinks I'm matching.
That's the one thing you gotta be good at.
If you can't hit, at least you gotta look good.
Okay, so maybe, the bigger turn, this time, I think.
That was pretty good.
A little to the right.
I totally agree.
Everything you said, I'm gonna work on that this time.
Maybe I'll do practice swings.
Do you think practice swings are good?
Or do you think just go for it?
Oh, you go really fast.
Is that how you get them to go so long?
Oh, wow, I got that, absolute, okay.
Oh, we're doing a drill.
Oh, am I practicing, that whipping sound.
We should do a contest at the end of this.
I might be able to beat you.
Was that good?
Should I try?
Big whipping sound, this one.
(ball hits tree)
Well, I think it went hard into the trees.
So that's progress?
So I think if I can go really hard,
but get it straight.
[Becca] Sign me up!
Was that as good for you as it was for me?
I think next time we gotta do
a five-minute Swedish lesson.
Imagine how good I'd get then
if I actually understood what you were saying.
We'll get a drink after this.
I'm good at that, too.
Thanks so much, that was so fun!
