Henrik Stenson Biography

Henrik Stenson was born in Gothenburg, Sweden on 5th April 1976. Introduced to the game by a friend he got down to scratch at the age of 18. He turned professional in 1999 and the following year topped the money rankings the Challenge Tour.

Stenson plays both on the US and European tours and has spent considerable time in the World top ten and his career high ranking of fourth is the best by any Swedish golfer. He joined the main European Tour in 2001 and has won six European Tour events. Since 2005 he has finished each year in the top 10 of the European Order of Merit.

Stenson reached the top 20 of the Official World Golf Rankings in 2006 and the top 10 in 2007. In February 2007, he reached number eight in the rankings following his victory at the Dubai Desert Classic and became the highest ranked European golfer for the first time. The following week he became the first Swede to win one of the World Golf Championships when beating Geoff Ogilvy 2&1 in the final of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. This victory took him to the top of the European Order of Merit and also to a high of 5th in the world rankings, which is also the highest a Swedish player has ever been ranked.

In 2006 Stenson made his Ryder Cup debut and after getting a half point in the foursomes against Stewart Cink and David Toms on the Friday, he had the honour of holing the winning putt and ensuring Europe won the Ryder Cup for a third consecutive time when beating Vaughn Taylor 4 & 3 in the Sunday singles. He played again in 2008 at Valhalla, scoring a win, a loss and a draw in the foursomes and losing the singles on Sunday 3 & 2 to an inspired Kenny Perry. He ended the 2008 in memorable fashion by partnering Robert Karlsson to a Swedish victory in the Omega Mission Hills World Cup then securing a runaway triumph in the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa. In
In March 2009 Stenson created a media storm after stripping to his underwear and golf glove in order to play a recovery shot from a muddy water hazard at the first round of the WGC-CA Championship.

On 10 May 2009, Stenson won The Players Championship with a dominating final round score of 66 to finish four ahead of Ian Poulter. The win was his first American stroke play victory. This win again brought him to fifth in the Official World Golf Rankings. The following week he moved up to fourth without playing.
