Henrik Stenson finished a distant second to Jordan Spieth at last week's Hero World Challenge and will now turn his attention to the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.
The Swede is coming off a relatively down year following his 2013 FedExCup title. Last season he finished just 52nd in the FEC standings, but did plenty of damage overseas, finishing second (to Rory McIlroy) in the Race to Dubai. Stenson teed it up just once during the PGA TOUR Fall Series, finishing T24 in the WGC-HSBC Champions. After a strong fall overseas, gamers should put him right back on the radar come 2015.

Henrik Stenson closed out the DP World Tour Championship with a 2-under-par 34-36=70 to post 16-under 272, good for a two-stroke victory over Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Victor Dubuisson.

After sitting on the 36-hole lead alone, Stenson shared the 54-hole lead with Rafael Cabrera-Bello entering the final round of the 2014 European Tour season. On cue, Sunday at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai evolved into a mad scramble among the circuit's top talents, especially when the Swede squared a double bogey-6 at the 11th hole where he knocked his tee ball out of bounds. However, Stenson rallied for birdies at 17 and 18 to establish the final margin. "It feels great," he said. "I'm exhausted to say the least. It was hot out there and tricky on the back nine. I did not play my best and had a shocking hole on 11. ... That knocked me back but I did not give up. I just had to dig in there and wait for something to happen. I had a couple of close calls this year to get my win and it was not to be. It's been close but eventually you get something if you stick around and I surely did that." RCB settled for a 3-over 34-41=75 and joint ninth place.

Henrik Stenson authored the low score of the finale at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions with a 7-under-par 31-34=65.

Stenson rolled in eight birdies before walking off with a bogey-5 at the ninth hole for what was his only gaffe. It equaled the lowest of the week (Hiroshi Iwata, second round). Adding to its luster was the fact that the Swede blew up for a 9-over 40-41=81 in his third round during which he hit 12 greens in regulation, but converted only one birdie. Stenson also squared four bogeys and three doubles, two of which on par 5s. All told, he landed at 1-under 70-71-81-65=287, good for a share of 24th place. He ranked second in fairways hit (42 of 56) and first in GIR (56), but 66th (of 76) in putts per GIR (1.857).
Nov 9 - 4:13 AM

Henrik Stenson tacked on a 1-under-par 38-33=71 in his second round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

With an opening 70 already on the board, he's 3-under 141 at the midpoint, three strokes behind the 36-hole clubhouse leader, Bubba Watson. The Swede opened today's lap around Sheshan International with a birdie at the par-4 first hole. He gave it back with a bogey-5 at No. 5, and then double-bogeyed the par-5 eighth. Now facing an upward climb, Stenson answered the bell with three birdies and six pars coming home to snipe the red number. The rough on this week's host track is up as compared to previous years. The course is quite playable, but it's clear that the new looks and additional strategic bunkering is forcing guys to make new decisions off the tee. Execution has been fleeting relatively and on the whole.
Nov 7 - 1:39 AM

Henrik Stenson put up a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

Stenson took a couple of weeks off to lick the wounds from a runner-up finish at the Volvo World Match Play Championship. He found five birdies at Sheshan International today. They helped hide three bogeys before he came to rest three strokes adrift of fellow Ryder Cupper Graeme McDowell.
Nov 6 - 3:21 AM

Henrik Stenson takes his talents to Sheshan International Golf Club for this week's World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

The Swede hasn't finished outside the top 40 in each of his last 13 stroke-play events, worldwide. He's nearly a year removed from his last international victory, which came in November of 2013 at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. Stenson is a contender anytime he tees it up, and gamers should have a hard look at him this week, regardless of the format.
Nov 5 - 9:27 AM

Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose kept their rally rolling with a 2-and-1 victory over Zach Johnson and Hunter Mahan in foursomes at the Ryder Cup.

The Euros opened with a birdie-3 at the first hole. They opened the advantage to 2 up through six before the U.S. went birdie-par at Nos. 7 and 8 to square. They traded jabs at 11 (Europe) and 14 (U.S.), but the visitors surrendered wins with bogeys at 15 and 17. The U.S. didn't sit on a lead at any time. Stenson and Rose went 2-0-0 today. The latter victory nudged Europe in front on the leaderboard, 3½-2½.
Sep 26 - 12:42 PM

Henrik Stenson makes his third Ryder Cup appearance this week at the PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles.

The Swede owns a 2-3-2 career record at the Ryder Cup. After a mid-season surge where he landed top 10s in five of six events globally, Stenson looked prime for a late-season charge. Instead, he fizzled out with five of his last six finishes falling outside the top 15. Had this event been last year, Stenson would have been in top form and expected to be one of European's bell cows.
Sep 22 - 8:52 AM

Henrik Stenson carded a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the BMW Championship to tie for 23rd at 3-under 277.

At 52nd in the FedExCup standings, he's ineligible to defend his FedExCup crown and TOUR Championship title. Also eliminated are: Stuart Appleby (31st in points); Harris English (32nd); Keegan Bradley (33rd); Charles Howell III (34th); Seung-yul Noh (35th); Brian Harman (36th); Graham DeLaet (37th); Kevin Stadler (38th); Ryan Moore (39th); Russell Knox (40th); Ernie Els (41st); J.B. Holmes (42nd); Charl Schwartzel (43rd); Kevin Streelman (44th); Matt Every (45th); George McNeill (46th); Chris Stroud (47th); Camilo Villegas (48th); Chesson Hadley (49th); Ángel Cabrera (50th); Brian Stuard (51st); Charley Hoffman (53rd); Tim Clark (54th); Kevin Chappell (55th); Graeme McDowell (56th); Daniel Summerhays (57th); Marc Leishman (58th); Steven Bowditch (59th); Ben Crane (60th); William McGirt (61st); Jerry Kelly (62nd); Carl Pettersson (63rd); Erik Compton (64th); Will MacKenzie (65th); Freddie Jacobson (66th); Matt Jones (67th); Phil Mickelson (68th); K.J. Choi (69th); Jason Bohn (70th).

Henrik Stenson backed up his opening 68 at the BMW Championship with a 1-under-par 33-36=69 to post 3-under 137 at the break, five swings adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Stenson was one of nine to finish his opening round at 11:00 a.m. MT today. He began his second at 12:04 p.m. at the par-4 first hole. Overall, he landed 15 greens in regulation, but failed to save par on the other three holes where he squared bogeys. The Swede counterbalanced with four birdies, all from inside nine feet, so it's no surprise that his strokes gained-putting clip for the day measured -2.283 at last check.
Sep 5 - 6:55 PM

Henrik Stenson mopped up his opening round of the BMW Championship with a par at the par-4 ninth to post 2-under-par 36-32=68.

The Swede was one of nine golfers stranded when play was suspended on Thursday afternoon due to inclement weather. He parred each of his first nine holes, but only three coming home. Instead, Stenson circled four birdies, the longest measuring just 10'11" at the par-4 seventh hole, to help offset two bogeys. He was the last of nine to complete 18 hole one stroke off the pace of the trio of co-leaders. The reigning FedExCup champ arrived in Colorado slotted 55th in points, so he'll need to break free from the pack to book a return trip to East Lake. Brandt Snedeker is the only defending FedExCup champion (2012) to qualify for the Playoffs finale the following season.
Sep 5 - 1:21 PM

Henrik Stenson posted a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the BMW Championship and is the first in the clubhouse at 6-under 278.

The biggest news for the Swede is that he is safe for the upcoming BMW Championship. He began the week 66th in the FedExCup standings and needing a solid week to advance to the third leg of the Playoffs, and he came through. His eight birdies more than made up for his two bogeys. Four of those birdies fell from outside of 10 feet, highlighted by a 20'3" putt on the par-3 eighth hole. He landed an impressive 16 GIR and gained well over two strokes with the flat stick.
Sep 1 - 1:19 PM

Henrik Stenson opened his title defense of the Deutsche Bank Championship with a 1-under-par 35-35=70.

Stenson will probably have mixed emotions at the end of the day. On one hand, he hit only 11 greens in regulation and buried three birdies to help offset two bogeys. His longest birdie ranged 15'2" at the par-5 seventh hole, which trailed a par save from 10-and-a-half feet at the par-4 sixth. So, it's not the kind of go-low scoring necessary to contend at TPC Boston, but he's only five strokes off the clubhouse lead. Furthermore, after entering the tournament at 66th in the FedExCup standings, he didn't thrwart an opportunity to advance in the Playoffs. In short, don't rule him out tomorrow.
Aug 29 - 3:55 PM

Henrik Stenson won the Deutsche Bank Championship in 2013 en route to eventually winning the FedExCup Championship and is back to defend this week.

The Swede better get his act together, as he is 66th in the FedExCup standings and can't afford a misstep if he hopes to continue his journey towards a second FEC Championship. He tied for 38th last week at The Barclays to make a modest move from 70th to 66th. While a similar result would be good enough to get him to the BMW Championship next week, his eyes are on much bigger prizes than just advancing.
Aug 26 - 9:48 PM

Henrik Stenson went out early and stapled a 6-under-par 32-32=64 on the board for his second round of The Barclays.

At 6-under 136, he's the very early 36-hole clubhouse leader, but these two rounds couldn't have been more different. The Sweden went 0-for-15 in birdie chances on Thursday and walked off with a bogey at the par-4 18th hole, the only that he didn't par. Today's recovery also featured 15 greens in regulation, but he converted seven times and added a five-yard hole-out from the rough for birdie at the par-5 17th. Three of his conventional rolls measured longer than 11 feet, but the clear-cut highlight set the tone for the day. After landing his tee ball at the par-3 10th where he opened 53'8" feet from the cup, Stenson drilled it home for the 2. He entered the FedExCup Playoffs ranked 70th in points and this is just his 13th start of the season. So, unless he advances to the BMW Championship, he'll fall short of the membership minimum of 15 starts.
