Biography

Introduced to golf by a neighbor, Henrik Stenson was hooked the first time he went to a driving range. At age 12, Stenson played his first full round of golf and was hitting with an impressive nine handicap from the men’s tees the following summer. In 2013, the Swede became the first linksman to win the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup and the European Tour’s Race to Dubai in the same season. A five-time winner on the PGA Tour, Stenson out-dueled Phil Mickelson at the 2016 Open Championship to win his first career major championship.
