Henrik Stenson won the 2013 and 2014 DP World Tour Championships and will look for a third straight title at the Earth course this week.
The Swede is hoping it'll be déjà vu all over again in the European Tour's big climax. Last year, as defending champion, he arrived in Dubai having gone through the season without a victory on either the European Tour or PGA TOUR but finally got the job done and he's in exactly the same boat this time after a string of near misses. They include T3 in last week's BMW Masters and second places in three of his previous six worldwide starts. Stenson is 41-under for his last eight rounds at the Earth course so will feel he is the man to beat again. The 39-year-old starts the week ranked 16th in the Race to Dubai. Nov 17 - 3:55 AM

Henrik Stenson concluded his week at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions in style, circling birdies on his last three holes to post 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round.

Stenson shot 14-under 274 for the week, but at least his next meal could taste a little better than usual. For the day, he buried seven birdies to cover a pair of bogeys mid-round. Most of all, his 66-67 on the weekend is proof that his right knee really doesn't bother him that much and he needs to remain on the short list for gamers who will ride out The Final Series on the European Tour. The rest of us will have to wait until 2016 to plug the Swede back into our lineups. He's scheduled to have surgery on his knee on Dec. 9. We should know soon thereafter how it went and what kind of timeline he'll have to return to competition.

Henrik Stenson managed but an even-par 37-35=72 in today's final round of the CIMB Classic and posted 7-under 281.

This will be his worst finish since a T40 at The Open Championship. Stenson signed his card parked at T46 in Malaysia. He hit 13 greens but erased three birdies with as many bogeys. At last check, the Swede ranked T71 in putts per GIR for the week at 1.842. We knew that he's planning five starts before having surgery on his right knee on Dec. 9, but that schedule suggests that he'll be fine until then. However, the attempts to execute this week didn't rule out that the knee is a problem now.

In his presser today at the CIMB Classic, Henrik Stenson revealed that he will have surgery on his right knee after he's done competing this fall.

"The only slight little worry is my right knee," he said. "I've got a bit of a problem with the meniscus and I'm scheduled to have an op(eration) on Dec. 9 in Orlando, so I'm hoping I can squeeze by in these last five tournaments that I have before Christmas." After his debut in Kuala Lumpur, he's expected to compete in the last three events of The Final Series on the European Tour. That includes next week's multi-sanctioned WGC-HSBC Champions in China. The final stop would be the Hero World Challenge in The Bahamas on Dec. 3-6.

Henrik Stenson readies for his tournament debut at this week's CIMB Classic.

The Swede returns to action this week after a three-week recess following a runner-up finish at the TOUR Championship. Stenson finished the season en fuego, posting results of 2-2-T10-T2 during the FedExCup Playoffs. There may be some dust to shake off the clubs to begin the week, but even a rusty Stenson can still manage a top-10 in a field like this weeks.
Oct 26 - 9:47 PM

Henrik Stenson settled for a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to wrap his second appearance at 5-under 275, good for a three-way tie for second and four strokes back of champion Jordan Spieth.

Stenson won the TOUR Championship in his 2013 debut and now shared runner-up. It's his third runner-up finish in this postseason and fourth top 10 in four Playoffs events after T10 at last week's BMW. For emphasis sake, his last four read: 2-2-T10-T2. He also snared second in the final FedExCup standings. Small consolation perhaps for the 39-year-old, who was looking for his first TOUR victory since the 2013 Playoffs finale. Stenson began the day in solo second at 7-under, one adrift of Spieth. He opened with seven consecutive pars, including par at the sixth which erased the deficit after Spieth bogeyed. He squared bogey at the eighth but birdied the par-5 ninth to turn even. Bogeys at 10 and 12 overshadowed birdie at 11, and he swallowed a double bogey-6 at 17. A 57-foot birdie bomb at the last bumped him into a three-way tie for second. After recording a cumulative 6.603 in strokes gained: tee-to-green thru 36 holes, the Swede slumped to negative numbers in his last two rounds.
Sep 27 - 6:28 PM

Overnight leader Henrik Stenson back-pedaled to a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in today's third round of the TOUR Championship to post 7-under 203, one shot adrift of Jordan Spieth.

Stenson began a soggy Saturday at East Lake with a three-stroke advantage over playing competitor Spieth at 9-under. The tournament winner and FedExCup champion in 2013 has been in the lead after every round he's played in Atlanta but that came to a screeching halt with today's indifferent effort. The Swede had posted six career rounds in the 60s at the Playoffs finale, including opening this year's edition in 63-68. He clung to the lead all the way to the 17th hole on Saturday but squared bogey, his fourth of the day, to Spieth's birdie and the duo were tied. Spieth's birdie on 18 snatched the outright lead and the pair will go at it again in the final group on Sunday. Earlier, Stenson circled two birdies at the par-4 third and 14th, respectively, but failed to birdie either of the par 5s for the second consecutive round.
Sep 26 - 4:21 PM

Overnight leader Henrik Stenson added a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round of the TOUR Championship to touch 9-under 131 at the midpoint, good for a three-shot margin entering the weekend.

The Swede loves himself some East Lake Golf Club. Of course, in his only previous look, he won the tournament in 2013 with four red numbers. He's now halfway to repeating the feat. He split just eight (of 14) fairways in today's loop, but he landed 16 greens in regulation and co-leads the field with 29 GIR at the break. While he squared two bogeys, including a three-putt from just inside 39 feet at the par-4 eighth hole, Stenson covered with four birdies, all of which from outside 13 feet. His longest taped off at 17'4" at the par-4 12th. He reached the midpoint ranked second in strokes gained: tee-to-green with an aggregate clip of 6.603. He's also third in strokes gained: putting with a combined measurement of 3.898. Since he entered the season finale slotted fourth in the FedExCup standings, a win also means the FedExCup title.
Sep 25 - 6:10 PM

Henrik Stenson spun a 7-under-par 29-34=63 in today's opening round of the TOUR Championship, good for sole possession of the overnight lead.

At fourth in the FedExCup standings, the Swede is one of five who controls his own destiny. With a win at East Lake, he'd guarantee a victory in the FedExCup as well. This, of course, would not be unfamiliar territory for Stenson in that he turned that trick in 2013 in his only previous appearance in this tournament. Today, he opened birdie-birdie-birdie, the last two ranging 11-14 feet. A birdie-2 from 20'11" at 6 ensued. He'd close out his outward half with a 24-footer for eagle at the par-5 ninth where he used two 3-woods to reach the green. Stenson didn't let up, burying birdies at the par-4 10th and 12th holes to touch 8-under, but that would be it for circles on the day. He'd drop a shot with bogey at the par-4 17th, but the 39-year-old will still lay his head down tonight knowing that he owns a two-shot margin over Paul Casey.
Sep 24 - 5:53 PM

Past FedExCup champ Henrik Stenson prepares for his second TOUR Championship in Atlanta and enters the week No. 4 in the FEC standings.

Stenson is one of four former FEC champs in the field of 30 this week having won the TOUR Championship in his 2013 debut. Like most FEC champs before him, sans Brandt Snedeker, he didn't make it back last year to defend his crown. Incidentally, his wire-to-wire victory at the 2013 Playoffs finale was also his last victory on the PGA TOUR, 31 starts ago. The 39-year-old opened the postseason 2-2-T10, making him the only one in the field recording top 10s in each of the first three legs of the Playoffs. The Swede can finish as low as T3 and still have a mathematical chance of winning. One cautionary note, he almost WD through four holes last Friday at the BMW when the lunate bone in his right hand started to bother him. The bone has been an issue for Stenson in the past and required physio assistance prior to continuing.
Sep 22 - 12:59 AM

Past FedExCup champ Henrik Stenson authored a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the BMW Championship to finish up his fourth appearance at 12-under 272, T7 on the live leaderboard.

For Stenson, it was his second blemish-free loop at Conway Farms Golf Club (63/R2) and continued his stellar play to open the Playoffs where he posted runner-up finishes in both of the first two legs of the postseason. He began the finale at 8-under (T18), a distant 12 back of 54-hole leader Jason Day, but just three adrift of the overnight top 10. The Swede striped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, converting on four, including a 20'5" roll on the par-3 17th to bump 11 places up the board with play still in progress. The 39-year-old projects fourth in FEC points heading to East Lake GC, where he won the whole enchilada in 2013.
Sep 20 - 4:24 PM

Henrik Stenson blistered Conway Farms Golf Club for eight birdies en route to an 8-under-par 32-31=63 in his second round.

He hit only 12 greens in regulation, but the Swede executed similarly to how he rung up runner-up finishes in the first two events of the FedExCup Playoffs. He circled four birdies in each nine, including rolls of 10'7" and 19'7" at Nos. 17 and 7, respectively. Believe it or not, this equals his lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR in 471 rounds (2013 Deutsche Bank Championship, second round). At 8-under 134, Stenson is three strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Sep 18 - 3:47 PM

Overnight leader Henrik Stenson backed up to a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 14-under 270, one shot back of champion Rickie Fowler.

Stenson began the day with a one-shot lead over playing partner Fowler and was looking for his fifth win in his 141st career start. The 2013 DBC and FedExCup champ opened with birdie from 5'9" and followed with another at the par-5 second. The first two holes were his 19 and 20th consecutive green in regulation, the longest stretch of his career. He broke the streak with a missed GIR at the drivable par-4 fourth, eventually squaring his first bogey. The Swede bounced back with birdie at the fifth from 17 feet to turn 2-under. Following the break, Stenson added birdies at 10 (to push the lead to three) and 12, the latter from 36'11", but diminished them with bogey-4 at the 11th while Fowler birdied. He ate double bogey-5 after rinsing his tee shot at the par-3 16th, which ended up being the decider. Stenson's consolation is his second straight runner-up (Barclays) and third of the season.
Sep 7 - 6:46 PM

Past champ Henrik Stenson crafted a bogey-free 6-under-par 31-34=65 in today's third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 13-under 200, good for a one-shot lead over Rickie Fowler heading to a Labor Day finish.

After opening in 67-68, Stenson began the day at 7-under (T7) and five adrift of 36-hole leader Charley Hoffman. Playing four groups ahead of the final pairing, he circled three on the card at Nos. 3, 7 and 9 but his most memorable one-putt came from 20 feet for an eagle-2 after driving the par-4 fourth. After the break, the 2013 FedExCup champ carded eight pars in a row on his inward half before navigating a two-putt birdie at the par-5 finisher for his final total. Stenson, runner-up last week at The Barclays, was solo second after 54 holes in the 2013 DB Championship, eventually taking the title by two with a final-round 66.
Sep 6 - 5:58 PM

2013 FedExCup champ Henrik Stenson signed for a 3-under-par 34-34=68 after today's second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach the halfway point at 7-under 135, five in arrears of 36-hole leader Charley Hoffman.

After circling eight on the card in the first round, Stenson added five in round two to total 13, T1 in the field thru 36 holes. On the flip side, he's squared six bogeys, two today, T54 in that category thru the first two days. The Swede began his loop on No. 10 and promptly squared bogey with a three-putt from 35 feet. He chased it with six consecutive pars before breaking the ice with back-to-back birdies at the par-4 17th (from 4'9") and a two-putt birdie at the par-5 18th to turn 1-under. Circle number three came from 3'11" at the par-4 first, prior to back-to-backs again at five and six, the former a bomb from 42'6". The 39-year-old squared bogey at the par-5 seventh (his 16th hole of the day) after missing the green in regulation, one of just three missed greens on the round after missing seven on day one. Stenson sat T2 after 36 holes last week at The Barclays, eventually finishing solo second. He's T7 here at TPC Boston.
