Henrik Stenson

Stenson won his first major at the 2016 British Open, becoming the first Swede to win a major title. Took a one-stroke lead and turned it into a three-stroke victory over Phil Mickelson. Shot rounds of 68-65-68-63 for a 20-under 264 total, breaking David Toms' record for lowest aggregate 72-hole score in a major (265). Became the second player to post a 63 in the final round of a major and win, joining Johnny Miller, who accomplished the feat at the 1973 U.S. Open at Oakmont. Tied the 72-hole record for score in relation to par at a major (20-under) with Jason Day, who broke Tiger Woods' 19-under record, when he won the 2015 PGA Championship. The 264 total set a new scoring record at the British Open, and his 63 was the lowest final round by a champion in the event's history. His win at Royal Troon was his fifth career PGA Tour title in his 154th start at the age of 40 years, 3 months, 12 days, and his 11th European Tour win in his 320th event. Became the oldest first-time major winner since Darren Clarke won the British Open in 2011 at age 42. Joined Tiger Woods as the only two players with victories at a major championship, a World Golf Championship, The Players Championship and the FedExCup during their respective careers.
Stenson was introduced to the game by a family friend and became a scratch player by age 18. He won the 2000 Challenge Tour Rankings with a record of eight top-10 finishes, including three wins. Lives in Orlando and is coached by Dubai-based Pete Cowen. Won his first European Tour title in more than five years when he claimed the South African Open by three strokes in November 2012. In the interim, he won the biggest title of his career with style at the 2009 Players Championship, carding a memorable final-round 66 at TPC Sawgrass. In 2010, he enjoyed his best performance to date at a major by finishing T-3rd at the British Open, matching his previous best effort at the same event in 2008. Made the European Ryder Cup team for the second consecutive time in 2008 and won 1 1/2 points at Valhalla, teaming with Oliver Wilson for a remarkable comeback to defeat Anthony Kim and Phil Mickelson 2 & 1 in the Saturday-morning foursomes. Ended 2008 in memorable fashion by partnering with compatriot Robert Karlsson to win the Mission Hills World Cup, then secured a runaway triumph at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa. Won the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in 2007 and three weeks later, captured the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, where he defeated 2006 U.S. Open winner and defending champion Geoff Ogilvy 2 & 1 in the 36-hole final. Member of 2006, '08, '14, '16 and '18 Ryder Cup teams.

2013 Notes: Finished T-8th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The next week, played to a T-2nd finish at the Shell Houston Open, his best result on the PGA Tour since his win at the 2009 Players Championship.

The injury, which occurred while he was practicing at home the previous October, hampered his play, especially during the final stages of the 2013 Race to Dubai. Finished runner-up at the Thailand Golf Championship and 4th at the Nedbank, but didn't post another top-15 result until his T-5th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Other top-10 results: T-7th at the BMW PGA Championship, T-4th at the U.S. Open, T-2nd at the BMW International in Germany and T-3rd at the PGA Championship.

In the year's Final Series, finished T-24th at the WGC-HSBC Champions, 3rd at the Turkish Airlines Open and won the DP World Championship, Dubai. The victory, though, wasn't enough to catch Rory McIlroy. Stenson finished 2nd. Ended his year 2nd at the Hero World Challenge, 10 strokes behind Jordan Spieth.
2015 Notes: Stenson had the best year of anyone without a win. Finished runner-up five times, three of them coming in the FedExCup playoffs. His year started on a dubious note when he missed the cut at Abu Dhabi, then finished T-13th at the Qatar Masters and Dubai Desert Classic. His game came around, though, and he finished T-4th at the WGC-Cadillac and 4th at the Valspar Championship, missing the playoff by one stroke. A week later, took a two-stroke lead into the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. His final-round, two-under-par 70 wasn't enough to hold off a hard-charging Matt Every, the event's defending champion, who closed with a six-under 66 to win by one stroke. Stenson's runner-up finish was his third consecutive top-10 at the event. The week before the Masters, Stenson came down with the flu and lost 20 pounds. He struggled starting at the Masters with a T-19th finish and didn't improve until June when he finished 2nd at the BMW International in Germany, a stroke behind winner Pablo Larrazabal.

With rounds of 66-68-68, was one stroke off Justin Rose's lead after 54 holes. In the final round, he headed to the 72nd hole tied with Rose at 15-under but bogeyed while Rose made birdie to win the gold medal. Stenson claimed the silver medal with a 13-under total. Ended his PGA Tour season with a T-41st at the Deutsche Bank Championship, where he finished 36th in the FedExCup standings and 21st on the money list.
