Stenson has been on a tear, and this setback is unrelated to his golf swing, so we shouldn't adjust our lofty expectations in advance of next week's Masters where he placed a career-best T14 last year.

Henrik Stenson submitted a disappointing 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and finished alone in second at 18-under 270.

The Swede will certainly rue this as a missed opportunity. He suffered a three-putt bogey on the par-4 15th and followed that with a three-putt par from just off the green on the par-5 16th, ultimately missing a playoff by one stroke. Though he circled four birdies to just two bogeys, the putter killed him all day long. He missed six putts from inside of 10 feet. He had a birdie bid from 20'7" to force a playoff on the 18th hole, but it was a forgone conclusion that he would miss it. The bright spot was his ball-striking, as he finished the week first in strokes gained: tee-to-green. He will now lick his wounds as he continues to prepare for the Masters in a few weeks.

Henrik Stenson took control of the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a bogey-free 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round and leads by two strokes at 16-under 200.

The Swede circled four birdies and an eagle on his trot around Bay Hill Club and Lodge. His putter produced on three occasions, rattling home birdies from 11'5" and 12'8" on the par-4 ninth and 15th holes and landing an eagle from 19''10" on the par-5 16th. He put on a ball-striking display, splitting 12 of 14 fairways and landing 16 GIR. Stenson gained over four strokes tee-to-green and ranks inside the top 10 in both strokes gained: tee-to-green and strokes gained: putting. He entered the week as the favorite of many, and he has done nothing to disappoint.

Henrik Stenson backed up his opening 68 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a 6-under-par 36-30=66 in today's second round.

The score is terrific, obviously, but it's how he closed that grabs our attention even more. After trading two birdies with two bogeys going out, Stenson picked off six birdies on his inward side, including on each of the last four holes. That closing run included conversions from five yards off the green at the par-4 15th and conventional rolls of 41'10" and 17'11" at Nos. 17 and 18, respectively. His early pair featured runs from 10-and-a-half feet at the third hole and 22'2" at No. 5. He even poured in a par save from 10'8" at the par-3 seventh. At last check, Stenson's strokes gained: putting clip for the round measured 4.893.; he ranked second in the field for the week. At 10-under 134, he's tied for second, three strokes adrift of 36-hole leader Morgan Hoffmann.
Mar 20 - 5:56 PM

Henrik Stenson authored a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, finishing one stroke off the pace of the threesome sharing the clubhouse lead.

This was entirely anticipated. With fourth-place finishes the last two weeks and a 6-for-6 record at Bay Hill with top 10 in his last two trips, Stenson was as obvious a choice in every format as anyone all season. He delivered 12 (of 14) fairways hit, 15 greens in regulation and four birdies. His longest par breaker disappeared from just 12'8" at the par-3 seventh hole. Continued to ride this horse because he can handle the load.
Mar 19 - 2:23 PM

Henrik Stenson spun a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the Valspar Championship and is the new clubhouse leader at 9-under 275.

Stenson started fast at the Copperhead Course, circling birdies on his first two holes from close range. His only dropped shot came at the par-4 ninth hole. He would rebound on the back nine with birdies on the 14th, 15th and 16th holes. The 12-footer on the 16th hole was his longest of the day. He will now sit back and wait to see if Jordan Spieth and Ryan Moore stub their toe behind him. It's not out of the question, as they still have to navigate the very difficult final three holes, also known as The Snake Pit.
Mar 15 - 5:16 PM

Henrik Stenson signed for an even-par 36-35=71 in the third round of the Valspar Championship to remain at 5-under 208 for the tournament.

The Swede's lap around the Copperhead Course began with 10 pars. He stubbed his toe with a bogey on the par-5 11th, but rebounded with a 12'7" birdie at the par-3 13th and a six-foot birdie on the par-3 15th before dropping his final shot at the par-3 17th. His scores have gone backwards this week. After a 67 in the opener, he followed with a 70 on Friday and a 71 on Saturday. He'll need to reverse that trend if he is to walk away with the trophy on Sunday.
Mar 14 - 5:45 PM

Henrik Stenson connected for a 1-under-par 36-34=70 in today's second round of the Valspar Championship to post 5-under 137 at the halfway point.

This was a bit of a strange day for the Swede. He mounted 15 greens in regulation, but found only two par breakers. Stenson opened with an eagle conversion from 20 feet at the par-5 first hole and walked off with a birdie-3 from 21'3" at the 18th hole. In between, he scored birdie-free 2-over with two bogeys as a result of misses from inside eight feet, and those were his only looks from inside 17 feet all day. He signed his card sitting just one stroke adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Mar 13 - 6:09 PM

Henrik Stenson spun a bogey-free, 32-35=67 in his opening round of the Valspar Championship and settled one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Stenson tied for fourth at Doral last week, but this is his first appearance at Copperhead. He didn't play like it was, though. Sure, he landed only 11 greens in regulation, but with par saves like a 15-footer at the par-3 17th and a 12-footer at the par-5 fifth, momentum was in his grasp the entire trip. He also buried a pair of birdies from 10-13 feet. At last check, his strokes gained: putting clip measured 2.988, good for second-highest in the field.
Mar 12 - 2:04 PM

Henrik Stenson signed for an even-par 37-35=72 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to join Adam Scott in the clubhouse lead at 4-under 284.

Stenson spread three birdies and three bogeys across Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course. All of his birdies fell from inside of nine feet. He split 11 of 14 fairways and landed 11 greens in regulation. He will need some help if his effort is to prove good enough for a playoff, as he was five off the lead in real time when he posted his number.
Mar 8 - 6:22 PM

Henrik Stenson could only muster an even-par 34-38=72 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to join a growing number of players inside the top 10 at 4-under 212.

The Swede only broke par on one of his holes at Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course, and that was an eagle from 9'7" on the par-5 eighth hole. He swallowed a pair of bogeys, including one on the par-4 18th to end the day. With J.B. Holmes trying to run away with the tournament, Stenson will need to take it deep on Sunday if he is to emerge with the win.
Mar 7 - 5:44 PM

Henrik Stenson tossed up a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in his second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

The Swede grinded all day. He hit only 11 greens in regulation, but rolled in four birdies, three of which from 15-21 feet. However, he splashed his tee ball en route to a double bogey at the par-3 fourth hole and failed to save par after sending his approach into a greenside bunker at the par-4 14th where he squared bogey. But at 4-under 140, he's only two back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Mar 6 - 5:41 PM

Henrik Stenson twirled a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

We haven't seen Stenson since the WGC-HSBC Champions, but he's been busy abroad. He showcased some of that form today at Trump National Doral with six birdies again three bogeys. His notable conversions measured 19-and-a-half feet at the par-4 17th and 40'2" at the par-4 sixth, both dropping for birdie. Overall, the Swede amassed 15 greens in regulation.
Mar 5 - 4:59 PM

Henrik Stenson emerges from a break to contest this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship in Florida.

The Swede, who sits at No.3 in the world rankings, hasn't played since a frustrating three weeks on the European Tour's Gulf Swing. He missed the cut in Abu Dhabi and had to settle for T13 in both Qatar and Dubai after a cold putter denied him any sort of title challenge. This event has also not been kind to him and five previous starts show no top 10s. The good news is that his best of T16 came last year following the major renovation work undertaken by Gil Hanse on Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course. Overall in Florida, the 38-year-old has posted three top 10s in his last five events.
Mar 3 - 8:51 AM

Henrik Stenson is a former winner of the Commerical Bank Qatar Masters and will be keen to wipe out last week's Abu Dhabi disappointment when he returns.

The World No. 2 didn't cash for the first time since March when he failed to make the weekend at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship following rounds of 76-68. He will hope for better fortunes in Qatar where he took the title in 2006 and finished runner-up in 2005, 2008 and 2009. The Swede's recent course form isn't as strong, with his last five finishes reading: 28-16-MC-MC-64. Stenson spoke briefly to the press after his missed cut in Abu Dhabi and wasn't concerned. "My game is heading in the right direction, so I’m not really worried. I’m sure I’ll be back to playing my best at some point. I played quite nicely out there," he said following his Friday 68 which couldn't repair the damage of that opening 76.
