Henrik Stenson

Probably the best golfer that Sweden has ever produced, Henrik Stenson – who has 11 worldwide wins to his credit along with a World Cup success alongside his friend Robert Karlsson – won the WGC-Accenture Matchplay in 2007 and then produced a quite magnificent display to capture The Players championship in 2009. He achieved a career-high ranking of fourth in the official world standings (after his Players triumph) and nominates the TPC at Sawgrass as his favourite course of all. Stenson, who first claimed a tour card off the Challenge Tour in 2000, had a breakthrough win on the PGA European Tour when winning the Benson & Hedges International at The Belfry in 2001 . . . . Stenson had the distinction of holing the winning putt in the 2006 Ryder Cup at The K Club . . . . includes fishing and cars among his off-course hobbies and has recently taken up flying.
