Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, World No. 17 Henrik Stenson pieced together a 1-over-par 36-35=71 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open to finish up on 6-over 286, good for a four-way T6, five adrift of overnight co-leader and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 68.
This was the 42-year-old's 12th U.S. Open, fifth top 25 and third top 10, first since T4 in 2014. Overall, it was his 49th major, 26th top 25, fourth straight, and 13th top 10, second straight after T5 at this year's Masters. The Orlando resident improves to 9-for-10 on the season with eight top 25s and five top 10s, first since the Masters. After opening with 71-70-74, he began solo 6th and two back. The Swede found 12 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, recording 1.750 putts per GIR with 30 total putts. He carded three birdies at 13 (from 21'11"), 14 and 17, outbalanced by four bogeys at 6, 10, 16 and 18. For the week, Stenson totaled one eagle and 10 birdies against 16 bogeys and one double.

World No. 17 Henrik Stenson stalled out to a 4-over-par 34-40=74 in the third round of the 118th U.S. Open to arrive at the three-quarter pole on 5-over 215, down two places to solo 6th, two adrift of a foursome of 54-hole leaders.

This is the 42-year-old's 49th major with one win, the 2016 Open (Royal Troon), where he was the 54-hole leader by one, shot 8-under 63 to win by three. It's his 12th U.S. Open with a best of T4 in 2014. After kicking off in 71-70, the Orlando resident began T4 on 1-over, five shy of leader Dustin Johnson. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he landed 11 (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation, posting 1.67 average putts with 30 total putts. The Swede went out in bogey-free 1-under, circling birdie-4 at 5 (from 12'2"), and actually led the tournament thru eight holes on level-par. He came home, however, in birdie-less 5-over, squaring five bogey-5s at 10, 13-15 and 18. Stenson missed two back-nine birdie tries at 11 and 12, both from inside of 10 feet, but did ram in a par-saver at 6 from 21'9". He'll play out of the third-to-last pairing again in R4.

Henrik Stenson crafted a two-tone level-par lap of 38-32=70 to hit the halfway mark of the 118th U.S. Open on 1-over 141, five swings behind the clubhouse leader Dustin Johnston at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club.

As on Thursday, the Swede got off to a poor start and then retrieved the situation with a display of skill and maturity. He made three errors on the front nine, failing to make a sand save at the par-3 second, repeating the mistake at the par-4 sixth and three-putting the seventh. But there were no dropped shots on the way home, instead two thrilling efforts to right the ship. At the 360-yard par-4 13th he left 55-yards to the pin, then drained the 18'0" birdie putt he earned from there. Better was to come at the 610-yard par-5 16th: a 311-yard drive, 288-yard approach to the green and a converted eagle putt from 19'6". His driver was straight all Friday (12 of 14 fairways), his irons less so (11 of 18 greens in regulation). He was T4 on the live leaderboard when he signed his card.

Henrik Stenson leads the field in birdies during round one of the 118th U.S. Open but finds himself in a share of sixth place after a 1-over-par 33-38=71, two off the early pacesetters.

The big Swede started his afternoon on the back nine and missed a pair of short putts right out of the gate (5'3" at the 10th and one inside a foot at the 11th). He then swallowed a double at the 14th to sit at 4-over thru five. A tap-in birdie at the par-5 16th got his round back on track and he'd add four more birdies before his day was down (most birdies in the field in R1). The highlight on the greens came at the sixth hole where he bombed in a 31'6" birdie. Making his 12th appearance at this event, this will be the fifth time he's positioned himself inside the top 10 after round one.

Henrik Stenson tossed together a 6-under-par 32-34=66 during round two of the Memorial Tournament, matching the low round of the day so far to reach 7-under 137 on the week.

The Swede started his afternoon on the 10th tee and circled a birdie at 10 before rinsing his approach at the par-5 11th (bogey). The rest of his card was clean, needing a 13'7" par-saver at the 18th to keep it clean. The highlight of his round came three holes earlier when he stuffed his 268-yard approach to 12'7" and splashed it home for an eagle. He would add a big highlight on the greens later in his day, bombing home a 37'6" birdie at the par-4 sixth. Playing his 16th competitive round here at Muirfield Village Golf Club, this will go in the books as a new personal best (R2/67, 2011). He is still searching for his first top 40 here at the Memorial, making his first appearance here since 2013 largely thanks to a change in scheduling of his home open on the European Tour.

Henrik Stenson arrives at THE PLAYERS Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. this week looking to awaken the echoes from the past.

Stenson beat Ian Poulter by four strokes at TPC Sawgrass in 2009 to capture THE PLAYERS Championship title. It's been hit or miss for Stenson at the event since, posting four finishes of 17th or better, a dismal 34th-place showing in 2014 and three missed cuts. Obviously a good start is key for Stenson, and this season he has been putting his best foot forward early. In fact, he ranks No. 1 on TOUR in Putts Per Round - Round 1 (26.20) and No. 14 in the category in Round 2 (28.00). He tails off significantly on the greens in Round 3, ranking 153rd, and even worse in Round 4 at 205th. The inconsistency on the greens is amazing, and worrisome, for potential DFS players. He'll get you to the weekend, but will he show vast improvement on TPC Sawgrass' tricky greens? Stats likely say no.

World No. 14 Henrik Stenson authored a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the final round of the 82nd Masters to post 9-under 279, good for T5, which is where he began, and six adrift of overnight leader and champion Patrick Reed.

The 42-year-old sunk a 4-footer for birdie on the 72nd hole, accompanied by a demonstrative fist-pump. It wasn't for his second major title (2016 Open), and it wasn't because it moved him to shared-fifth. More likely, it was because the Swede finally recorded a top 10 at the Masters in his 13th try. Overall, this is his 12th top 10 in 48 majors, first since T7 at the 2016 PGA. It's also his third straight top 13. After opening with 69, the Orlando resident posted three straight 70s to get the monkey off his back. At 1-over thru 12 holes in the finale, he had dropped out of the top 10, but got back in with birdies at 13, 15 and 18. Stenson striped 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation with zero 3-putts, outpacing three squares with five circles.
Apr 8 - 9:20 PM

World No. 14 Henrik Stenson backed up with a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the 82nd Masters, dipping two places to solo 5th on 7-under 209, seven in arrears of 54-hole leader Patrick Reed.

After opening with 69-70, the 42-year-old began in solo 3rd, four back of Reed. Playing out of the penultimate twosome with Rory McIlroy, who shot 65, he found 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, needing 30 total putts. The Swede kicked off his scoring with bogey-6 at hole 2 (unplayable lie with his tee shot), before circling birdies at 7 (hole-out from a greenside bunker) and 8. He mustered just one more birdie at the par-5 15th (from six feet) to fall off the pace. The Orlando resident will play out of the third-to-last twosome on Sunday with Tommy Fleetwood.
Apr 7 - 7:55 PM

World No. 14 Henrik Stenson tacked on a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the second round of the 82nd Masters for a 36-hole tally of 5-under 139, up one place to solo 3rd, four back of leader Patrick Reed.

This is the 42-year-old's 48th major with 24 top 25s, 11 top 10s and the one win at the 2016 Open Championship (Royal Troon). He hit nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, recording 1.56 putts per GIR with one three-putt. The Orlando resident squared three bogeys at holes 4, 10 and 12, outflanked by five birdies at 2, 8, 11, 14 and 17. Two of those were two-putt varieties, adding a 30-footer from off the green at 11 and a 28-footer at the par-4 14th. The Swede concluded his scoring with a 15-foot birdie-3 at 17 and then got up and down for par at 18 from just short of the green. He'll play out of the penultimate twosome on Saturday with Rory McIlroy.
Apr 6 - 7:42 PM

Henrik Stenson confounded his career history to card a first round 3-under-par 34-35=69, his very first sub-70 opening lap in 13 visits to the Masters, it left him T3 on the live leaderboard.

The Swede has never made strong starts in this tournament. He's twice posted 71 and twice 72, but the other eight performances have been poor. Indeed, in 2010-11 he shot an 80 and an 83. On Thursday he swept through the back nine, ticking birdie at the fourth (27'0") and seventh (7'0"). There were more par breakers on the back nine: from 27'0" at 11 and tap-ins on the two par-5s (13 and 15). There were errors, too, however: Failure to find the 14th and 18th greens followed by failure to scramble the par. Overall, and with the weight of that history, he must be happy. Nonetheless, to contend for the Green Jacket he must continue to break with tradition. He had never gone sub-70 on Friday, nor - incredibly - has he done so on Saturday (he has, however done it three times in his last four final round laps). He landed 10 of 14 fairways and 12 of 18 greens in regulation.
Apr 5 - 4:31 PM

World No. 15 Henrik Stenson carved out a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Houston Open for a four-day total of 14-under 274, up one place to T6, five adrift of a two-man playoff involving overnight co-leaders Beau Hossler and eventual champ Ian Poulter.

The 41-year-old, four days shy of his birthday (April 5th), bags his fifth top 25 in seven appearances and fourth top 10. He recorded four straight in the red for a third time, joining his runner-up finishes in 2013 and 2016. After kicking off in 68-68-69, the Orlando resident began in a six-way T7, three back. He found nine (of 14) fairways and hit all 18 greens in regulation, gaining 2.805 strokes approaching-the-green. The Swede squared two bogeys at holes 3 (3-putt from 64'10") and 14 (3-putt from 53'1"), offset by five birdies at 1 (from 12'0"), 4, 8, 10 and 15. He posted a pedestrian 1.889 putts per GIR and -1.840 SG: Putting, needing 34 total putts. For the week, Stenson ranked 2nd in SG: Approach (8.442) but 66th (of 75) in SGP at -2.214. It's his third top 10 this season in four starts, second straight.
Apr 1 - 8:05 PM

World No. 15 Henrik Stenson fashioned a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the Houston Open to for a 54-hole tally of 11-under 205, up four places on the live leaderboard to T7, three in arrears of clubhouse leader Ian Poulter.

This is the 41-year-old's seventh appearance with four prior top 25s and three top 10s, all three doubling as top 3s. He debuted a T3 in 2009 and was joint-runner-up in 2013 and solo 2nd in 2016. After kicking off with twin 68s, the Orlando resident was bogey-free thru 36 holes, one of only two players to accomplish that this week (Scott Piercy). On nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, he squared two bogeys on Saturday, offset by five circles, four from inside of feet feet and walking off with a 32-foot, eight-inch birdie bomb at 18. The Swede posted 1.714 putts per GIR (29 total putts) and -2.016 SG: Putting, but gained 5.042 strokes approaching-the-green.
Mar 31 - 5:15 PM

Henrik Stenson continues his boycott of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, skipping this week's event for the third-straight year.

The Big Swede is not boycotting the event, in general, but instead he's expressing his dislike for the format. When asked about it ahead of the Valspar Championship, Stenson said "Match Play, it's kind of do or die for me. I'm winning and I'm staying or I'm losing and I'm going home." He went on to add, "It's a couple of things for me. When it changed, I haven't played it a lot since that got changed and also a scheduling thing because I played a big one early and I had some time off to rest and practice. I don't feel like I'm going to play five weeks in a row with Augusta being the last one and I like to play the week before for the Masters." Gamers should expect to see him peg it next weeks at the Houston Open and the Masters.

Overnight leader and World No. 15 Henrik Stenson bobbled to a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, dropping three spots to solo 4th on 13-under 275, five shy of champion Rory McIlroy, who fired a week-tying-low 64 out of the penultimate pairing.

The 41-year-old, chasing his seventh TOUR title in 175 events, was the first-round leader with 64, co-led after 36 holes with 69, and began with a one-shot lead over playing competitor Bryson DeChambeau after a R3 71. Playing out of the final twosome, he began two clear of McIlroy. The Orlando resident hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 0.503 strokes off-the-tee and 1.291 tee-to-green. He squared two bogey-5s at holes 8 and 18, slightly outpaced by three birdies at 1, 4 and 13, two from between 11 and 13 feet. The Swede, who drops to 3-for-6 when the 54-hole leader/co-leader, recorded a pedestrian 1.846 putts per GIR and 0.164 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts. He's now 2-for-3 on the season with two top 5s (T2, WGC-HSBC) and improves to 9-for-10 at the API with seven top 25s, five top 10s and four top 5s.
Mar 18 - 8:12 PM

First-round leader and second-round, co-leader Henrik Stenson pieced together a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to post 12-under 204, good for a one-shot lead over playing competitor Bryson DeChambeau, who shot 72.

The Orlando resident is chasing his seventh TOUR title in 175 events, first since the 2017 Wyndham just five starts ago. At the Wyndham, he was the 54-hole leader by one, shot 6-under 64 and won by 1 (Schniederjans). Overall, this is his sixth career 54-hole lead (all outright leads) and is 3-for-5 converting, including his last two tries. The Swede also led the 2016 Open by one, shot 8-under 63 and won by three (Mickelson). After opening in 64-69, he co-led with DeChambeau and hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.582 strokes approaching-the-green but losing 2.044 around-the-green. The 41-year-old squared three bogeys at holes 8, 10 and 17, outpaced by four circles at 1, 9, 12 and 16, two from between 12 and 31 feet. He posted 1.727 putts per GIR and 1.208 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. Stenson will play with DeChambeau again in R4 out of the final twosome.
