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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Henrik Stenson put a charge into Valhalla Golf Club with his final-round 5-under-par 30-36=66 in the PGA Championship to take the clubhouse lead at 14-under 270.

The Swede played the front nine at Valhalla Golf Club blemish-free with birdies on every odd-numbered hole, and then traded a birdie and a bogey on the back. His 26'10" birdie at the par-4 ninth stands as the highlight, while all of the other birdies fell from inside 10 feet. Stenson had a chance to take it one deeper after finding the fairway on the par-5 18th, but he caught a mud ball and flew the green before ultimately settling for a par. Not known as a great putter, he was leading the tournament in strokes gained at the time of his posting. While he eventually settled for a share of third place, it official secures an exemption into the 2015 Masters. The top four gain entry. The others: Rory McIlroy (win); Phil Mickelson (second); Rickie Fowler (T3). Of course, all four were going to be exempt anyway.

Henrik Stenson crafted a 4-under-par 33-34=68 in the third round of the PGA Championship to join Louis Oosthuizen in the clubhouse lead at 9-under 204.

The Swede bagged six birdies and gave away two bogey on his navigation of Valhalla Golf Club. With the exception of a 23'9" birdie at the par-4 17th, all of his circles on the scorecard came from inside 10 feet. Opposite his reputation, he was second in strokes gained-putting at the time of his posting. This leaderboard is packed with premier players, some looking for their first major championship like Stenson, while others are seeking to add to their legacy. A strong final round could realistically result in a Wanamaker trophy for Stenson.
Aug 9 - 6:19 PM

Henrik Stenson posted an even-par 36-35=71 in his second round of the PGA Championship, arriving at the midpoint in 5-under 137, two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Swede has enjoyed better days, but at least he didn't shoot himself out of the tournament. He traded three birdies with as many bogeys. Two of his birdies disappeared from beyond 10 feet, the highlight stretching 29'6" at the par-4 13th hole.
Aug 8 - 2:54 PM

Henrik Stenson wielded a red-hot putter in his opening round of the PGA Championship after which he signed for a 5-under-par 32-34=66 to finish one off the clubhouse lead.

Stenson's strokes gained-putting split sat at 4.135 at last check, tops in the field. He hit 12 greens in regulation and buried six birdies. The set featured conversions from 15'1", 46'4" and 16'10" at Nos. 7, 9 and 18, respectively. He also poured in a par save from 12'2" at the par-4 16th. The Swede's only gaffe of the day occurred at the par-4 15th where he rinsed his approach and settled for bogey.
Aug 7 - 7:03 PM

Henrik Stenson carded a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Stenson reaches the 54-hole mark inside the top 10 at 5-under 205. His third lap around Firestone CC featured four birdies and two bogeys, with the rest pars. His closing birdie at the par-4 18th came on the heels of a 3 hour and 17 minute rain delay, and fell from 13'9". That was child's play compared to his 69'2" birdie at the par-4 13th. He will need to go low in the final round, and get a little help from those above him, if he is to have a chance to steal a win on Sunday.
Aug 2 - 4:08 PM

Henrik Stenson spun a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in his second round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

After opening the tournament with a 1-over 71 that featured three consecutive bogeys to close out his opening nine, Stenson was after a spark. Well, he got it. After striping the fairway at the par-4 10th hole where he kicked off his loop around Firestone today, the lanky Swede holed out from 108 yards for eagle. He chased it with a birdie conversion from 18'5" at the par-4 11th and would add two birdies the rest of the way, including a run from 11'8" at the par-4 18th. Only a bogey-4 at No. 14 spoiled an otherwise stellar round during which he hit 15 greens in regulation. Now 3-under 137, he's suddenly five swings off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Aug 1 - 2:52 PM

Henrik Stenson signed for an even-par 35-37=72 following his opening round of The Open Championship.

The indifferent score wasn't without a notable event, however. After attempting to escape from a poor lie off the fairway at the par-4 17th hole, Stenson promptly snapped his iron over his leg, breaking it in two. It was a harsh penalty given it was the only fairway (of 14) he missed all day. He bogeyed the hole, but bounced back with a birdie-4 at the last. Overall, he circled four birdies, two bogeys and a double while playing with Tiger Woods. Stenson hit 13 greens in regulation and didn't break par, so you can understand his frustration by the time he reached the penultimate hole.
