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.

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.
Sep 5 - 7:41 PM

Henrik Stenson went 8-for-11 in scoring opportunities in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and scored 4-under-par 34-33=67.

The Swede circled eight birdies, most in the field. His only notable conversion measured 20 feet at the par-4 17th where he circled his last birdie. He went just 3-for-7 in scrambling with four bogeys, which left just six holes where he penciled in par, including on two of the three par 5s at TPC Boston. After the final ball fell today, Stenson led the field in putts per greens in regulation at a tidy 1.364. He's only two shots off Brendon de Jonge's overnight lead. Last week's solo second at Plainfield vaulted the 39-year-old to fourth in the FedExCup standings. It's a position he'd at least like to retain by the time the TOUR Championship rolls around since anyone inside the top five can win the FedExCup with a victory at East Lake.
Sep 4 - 7:15 PM

2013 FedExCup champion Henrik Stenson carded a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the finale of The Barclays to conclude his fifth appearance at 13-under 267, good for solo second, but a distant six shots in arrears of champion Jason Day.

Stenson began his final frame at 9-under (T4) and two adrift of 54-hole, co-leaders Day and Sangmoon Bae. After opening in 68-66-67, he wrapped with a six-birdie against two-bogey effort, recording four rounds in the 60s for the first time in five appearances at the FEC opener. It's easily his best finish in the tournament, erasing a T38 in last year's edition at Ridgewood CC. The Swede squared bogey at the par-4 second after missing the green in regulation, one of just three missed greens on the loop. For the week, he ranked third in GIR (at 58/72), was a cumulative 12.244 in strokes gained: tee-to-green, second in the field, but 30th in strokes gained: putting, including a three-putt bogey at the par-5 16th, which ended his title chance. The 39-year-old circled six on the card in-between his two bogeys en route to his second runner-up finish of the season (Arnold Palmer) on just 13 starts. Additionally, he moves from 41st in the FEC standings to fourth.
Aug 30 - 7:03 PM

Henrik Stenson awoke to post a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of The Barclays for a 54-hole tally of 9-under 201, two back of co-leaders Sangmoon Bae and Jason Day.

Stenson began Saturday's play in four-way tie for second at 6-under, one swing adrift of playing partner Bubba Watson. He tied the lead with birdie at the opener from 5'5" but immediately gave the shot back by three-putting the par-4 second from 34'9". The Swede went into stall-mode, concluding his outward half with seven consecutive pars. His only other legit scoring chance prior to the break was from 7'3" at the par-3 third. After a two-putt par at the 10th, Stenson carded back-to-back birdies at 11 and 12, both from inside seven feet, to get back into the fight. The 39-year-old added one more circle at the par-4 17th, from 24'6" for his final total. He missed three good chances to improve his number at Nos. 13, 16 and 18, all from inside nine feet, but couldn't convert. Thru 54 holes, Stenson is second in the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green, but 35th in strokes gained: putting after today's -1.782 effort.
Aug 29 - 7:20 PM

Henrik Stenson hung up a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in today's second round of The Barclays to post 6-under 134 at the break, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

His opening 68 was a bit manic in that he opened with four straight birdies, and then squared four bogeys against two birdies on his inward nine. But the Swede had little trouble navigating Plainfield today. He split 11 (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens in regulation and picked off five birdies, all from inside seven feet. He arrived slotted 41st in the FedExCup standings. If that seems low, consider that he's made only 12 starts and hasn't won a tournament. Suddenly, his position seems as strong as his form.
Aug 28 - 12:53 PM

Henrik Stenson hung up a 6-under-par 31-35=66 in his second round at the 97th PGA Championship to repair some of the damage caused by an opening 76.

Getting back to level par was the first target for the Swede and he did that by circling birdies at 10, 11, 15 and 16 before getting into red figures with another at 17. He hit 8-under for his round with further par breakers at 5 and 6 and all this with a longest conversion from 18'8" at 17. But with a very low one on the cards, he gave two shots back with bogeys at 7 and 8 to settle in at 2-under 142, five shots behind compatriot David Lingmerth. Stenson, who split 9 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation in round two, is safely into the weekend but still has lots of work to do.
