ORLANDO, Fla. -- Jack Nicklaus has been designing and building golf courses around the world for the last four decades, and most of his work has been overseas during the last 10 years. But his latest project in Turkmenistan is as intriguing as any of them.Few people there even play golf.

He takes it to all his people.He said the president wants a championship golf course and a learning golf course. Nicklaus already has made five trips to Turkmenistan, and he said the project will include golf courses in Awaza, a tourist zone along the Caspian Sea.Nicklaus said Awaza has 33 five-star hotels occupied only by the Turkmen from June to September, even though the weather is pleasant enough to go from April until early November. He said Turkmenistan issued fewer than 1,000 tourist visas last year, but the plan was to make Awaza more of a tourist destination.And now were going to put golf in -- seaside links, Nicklaus said.---STENSON AWARDS: The European awards are starting to pile up for British Open champion Henrik Stenson.The 40-year-old Swede was European Tour player of the year for a season in which he won his first major, the Race to Dubai for the second time and was the silver medalist in golfs return to the Olympics.Stenson also has been awarded the Golf Writers Trophy by the British-based Association of Golf Writers.Ill never grow tired of being weighed down with trophies, Stenson said.The Golf Writers Trophy is for those who were born or reside in Europe and have made the most outstanding contributions in golf for the year.Stenson set the major championship record for a 72-hole score at 264 in a duel with Phil Mickelson at Royal Troon, where the Swede joined Johnny Miller as the only players to close with a 63 to win a major.
