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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
