Singapore - Sweden's Henrik Stenson has been selected for next month's fifth Royal Trophy in Brunei after featuring in all of Europe's four straight wins against Asia at the event, organisers said on Tuesday.

Stenson, who broke a three-year win drought at last week's South Africa Open, was called up by European captain Jose Maria Olazabal, who masterminded Europe's win over the United States at the recent Ryder Cup.

"Henrik's confidence will be sky-high after this latest win, which highlighted his strong character as well as his enormous talent," Olazabal said in a press release.

"It is great to have him on our team. His Royal Trophy record is a phenomenal one, both individually and in terms of helping Europe prevail in tight circumstances."

Stenson joins fellow Ryder Cup winners Paul Lawrie, Francesco Molinari, Nicolas Colsaerts and Colin Montgomerie among the players already nominated for Europe.

Asian captain Joe Ozaki has called up South Korean Major-winner Y.E. Yang, India's Jeev Milkha Singh and Chinese number one Wu Ashun among his selections for the December 14-16 tournament at Brunei's Empire Hotel and Country Club.
