Although Henrik is without a victory this season, 2015 has proved to be a season of consistent golf with runner-up finishes a plenty. His first top 5 finish came at the Cadillac Championship (T4) and, in his first ever appearance at the Valspar Championship, another fourth place finish. Henrik got closer to victory at both the Arnold Palmer Invitational and Bay Hill, before again coming agonisingly close to picking up some silverware by finishing second in three out of four of the FedEx Cup Playoff events - eventually finishing runner-up to Jordan Spieth in the FedEx Cup standings.

Stenson’s best finish at the WGC HSBC Champions came in 2010 when he finished T13.

Last year, Stenson reached a career high ranking of number two in the world, trailing only Adam Scott whilst over the course of 2014, Stenson achieved career-best finishes at the Masters (T14) and U.S. Open (T4) while tying a career-best finish at the PGA Championship (T3).

2013 proved to be Henrik Stenson’s hottest year on both the PGA Tour and European Tour as he won the TOUR Championship and FedEx Cup in America whilst capturing the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai to win the Race to Dubai crown. He also narrowly missed out winning his first Major when he finished runner up to Phil Mickelson in the Open Championship and in third place at the 2013 US PGA Championship. To cap off his remarkable year, he was crowed the European Tour Golfer of the Year.

Stenson is a past winner of a World Golf Championship, having won the 2007 WGC Accenture Match Play Championship whilst his other championship titles include the likes of the 2009 Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass.

Stenson has represented the European Ryder Cup on three occasions (2006, 2008, 2014) and represented Sweden in the World Cup four times, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2009 claiming a win for Sweden in 2008 with partner, Robert Karlsson.

A family friend introduced Henrik to the game at the age of 12 and such was his talent, he got down to scratch by the age of 18, and in 1994 played for Swedish boys. A year later, he graduated to the national side and had a successful amateur career by representing Sweden in the 1998 Eisenhower Trophy in Chile.
