BETHESDA, Md. – Think Henrik Stenson doesn’t have major game?
Look at the way he’s playing this week at the U.S. Open. The Swede has just birdied Nos. 3 and 4 to move to 2 under and into a growing tie for third at Congressional.
Consider this, though. Since he won THE PLAYERS Championship in 2009, Stenson has posted three top-10s on TOUR – all of which have come in major championships.
Stenson finished ninth at the 2009 U.S. Open and tied for sixth at the PGA Championship. Last year, his only top-10 came when the Swede tied for third at the British Open.
And he’s working on another at Congressional this week. Think patience has something to do with it?
