USPGA Championship Contenders 2011 - Henrik Stenson

PGA Championship Henrik StensonFollowing an excellent year in 2007, where Henrik reached number five in the world rankings and won two tournaments, his winning form appeared to have deserted him in 2008. On the bright side he has achieved six top ten finishes, including two runner-up spots, firstly at the Qatar Masters, where he finished behind Adam Scott and then was second again at the Abu Dhabi Championship. Stenson's biggest win of his career came earlier this year when he won the Players Championship at Sawgrass by four strokes. It was a big win for Stenson in what is known as the '5th Major' and he will be looking to follow that up with a Major victory.

His performances in the Major Golf events do not reflect what a very good player Henrik is. His best performance so far in a Major was at the 2008 British Open where he tied for 3rd place. He was also T17th this year in the US Masters, behind winner, Trevor Immelman In total Henrik has won six European Tour events and one WGC along with his Players Championship win.

Playing Style

Henrik has a very stylish swing that is the envy of many of the tour players. He hits the ball a long way and his iron play is also amongst the best. If anything it is his short game that needs to improve, particularly when playing Major tournaments where he can expect greater difficulty.
