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. Jul 17 - 9:07 AM

Henrik Stenson tied for 48th place at Royal Liverpool in 2006 and returns this week for another chance at The Open Championship.

The Swede has been kicking on the major championship door for a while now, finishing 21st place or better in his last six majors, and it's seemingly just a matter of time before the door falls over. He's in top form, as well, finishing top 10 in five of his last six events, worldwide. This is one of those weeks where trends converge perfectly, and expectations are at there highest.

Henrik Stenson stumbled to a 3-over-par 36-37=73 in the final round of the U.S. open to tie for fourth at 1-over 281.

When the day began, the Swede was one of a precious few who had a chance to apply some pressure to Martin Kaymer in an attempt to spoil his good walk around Pinehurst No. 2. Stenson failed to do so, with his two birdies more than swallowed up by five bogeys. Perhaps the takeaway is that he is beginning to peak at just about the same time he did a year ago, when he went on a tear and eventually won the FedExCup Championship. Keep a close eye on him going forward.

Henrik Stenson carded a steady even-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the U.S. Open to reach the 54-hole mark at 2-under 208.

The Swede played quintessential U.S. Open golf on Saturday, circling two birdies while handing back two bogeys. He split 12 of 14 fairways and landed 13 GIR, while burning the edges on multiple birdie putts, and was nearly the guy that gave 36-hole leader, Martin Kaymer, something to worry about. Stenson has been remarkably consistent this week, posting 69s in each of his first two rounds before Saturday's 70. He will try and score his first major championship in Sunday's finale.

Henrik Stenson fashioned a 1-under-par 36-33=69 in his second round of the U.S. Open.

With Thursday's identical score, the Swede is 2-under 138 at the midpoint, eight strokes adrift of the 36-hole lead. He hit 15 greens in regulation today, but still suffered two bogeys against three birdies. Overall, he's missed only seven GIR, but squared five bogeys.

Henrik Stenson carded a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the U.S. Open, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

You knew that it would be just a matter of time before he begins making noise again. He's played a limited schedule this year after needing to recharge his batteries after a world-beating 2013, and there's quite a bit of golf remaining at Pinehurst, but he's in position to become the first Scandinavian to win a major. Stenson traded four birdies with three bogeys today. His score goes in the books as his lowest first round in eight starts in the U.S. Open.

Henrik Stenson is rounding into form just in time for this week's U.S. Open.

Henrik Stenson has found him swing overseas after a slow start to the 2014 PGA TOUR season. After his first six PGA TOUR starts yielded just one top 10, the Swede took to the European Tour where he polished away three international top 10s. He's 5-for-7 in his career at the U.S. Open with all five going for top-30 finishes. Good form converging with good tournament history makes Stenson one of the top options this week.
Jun 11 - 12:26 PM

Henrik Stenson returns to a favorable venue this week as he tees it up at THE PLAYERS.

The 2009 champion always brings his A-game to TPC Sawgrass. In addition to his 2009 victory, Stenson has five additional top 25s with just two missed cuts which came in 2010 and 2011. He should be heavily considered by gamers this week.
May 7 - 12:43 PM

Henrik Stenson carved out a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to take the clubhouse lead at 9-under 279.

While the Swede hadn't played poorly to start the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season, this will go into the books as his first top 10. His tie for eighth at Bay Hill in 2013 was his first of that season, and he went on to win the FedExCup title. Aside from the obvious high finish, another excellent sign was how dialed in his irons were. After leading the PGA TOUR in GIR in 2013, Stenson did the same at Bay Hill this week.
Mar 23 - 5:02 PM

Henrik Stenson managed a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to join Matt Jones in the clubhouse lead at 5-under 211.

The Swede circled five birdies and squared two bogeys on his tour of Bay Hill, missing just one fairway and landing 14 GIR in a solid display of ball-striking. Driving accuracy has been a key to his week, splitting 33 of 42 fairways. He's slowly rounding into form, cracking the top 20 in two of his last three starts entering this week.
Mar 22 - 3:52 PM

Henrik Stenson signed for respective rounds of 73 and 76 at The Honda Classic and missed the 36-hole by nine strokes.

The field of 144 enjoyed lift, clean and place on preferred lies during the first two rounds at par-70 PGA National, but the reigning FedExCup champion failed to capitalize. He split 17 (of 28) fairways but hit only 16 greens in regulation. That mismatch led to eight bogeys and two doubles against only three birdies. It's his first MC on the PGA TOUR since last season's Wells Fargo Championship, so his consecutive cuts made streak on the circuit ends at 13. However, in the last seven weeks worldwide, he's just 2-for-4 with no top 25s in stroke-play starts worldwide and a second-round exit at the WGC-Accenture Match Play. He'll try again at next week's WGC-Cadillac Championship where he hasn't played since 2010.
Feb 28 - 8:05 PM

Henrik Stenson opened the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship with a 2-and-1 victory over Kiradech Aphibarnrat in the Jones Bracket.

Stenson was the default No. 1 seed in the tournament, but he fulfilled the expectation today nonetheless. He buried six birdies against, four of which for wins to complement two others with pars. However, bogeys at 9 and 10 handed the first-timer from Thailand a 1-up lead. Stenson took 11 with a birdie before Aphibarnrat regained control with a birdie at the par-3 12th. After matching par-5s at 13, the Swede won three of the next four for the match and his first win in the opening round in his last five appearances. He'll face Louis Oosthuizen on Thursday.
Feb 19 - 6:15 PM

Henrik Stenson is the top-ranked player in the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

The Swede is third in the Official World Golf Ranking, but the absence of Tiger Woods and Adam Scott has him heading the Gary Player bracket and preparing for a first-round tee time against Kiradech Aphibarnrat. If you look back at Stenson's history in this event, it's cringe-worthy. He's failed to advance out of the first round in his last four trips to Dove Mountain. Upset special, perhaps?
Feb 18 - 10:07 PM

Henrik Stenson is not listed in the published field of next week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

While the Swede is slotted third in the Official World Golf Ranking, he's arguably the best golfer on the planet right now. In his last 15 starts worldwide, Stenson has three wins, three seconds, two thirds and a fourth among 11 top 10s. During that stretch, he won both the FedExCup and the Race to Dubai. This is the third time that he's qualified for the winners-only soiree at Kapalua, but he's made just one appearance (T28, 2008). After a well-deserved break (and time to allow his ailing right wrist to heal as much as possible), he'll return to competition in Abu Dhabi on Jan. 16-19. Stenson plans to play the entire Desert Swing, in fact, with stops in Qatar and Dubai in successive weeks, before making his 2014 PGA TOUR debut at the WGC-Accenture Match Play on Feb. 19-23. He's already 1-for-1 on the young season with a shocking T31 at the WGC-HSBC Champions.

Henrik Stenson sits bogey-free 1-under-par through seven holes of the Nedbank Golf Challenge.

Stenson opened with a birdie at the par-4 first hole before reeling off six straight pars. Play was suspended for two hours and 48 minutes early in the afternoon due to inclement weather. The 30-man field then worked in another 78 minutes before thunderstorms halted play for good until 7:30 a.m. local time on Friday. The Swede sat out the South African Open two weeks ago to give his injured right wrist some time to rest and heal.
