Followed an extraordinary 2013 season with another impressively consistent campaign in 2014, finishing second in The Race to Dubai. Came close to breaking his Major duck in the 2014 US PGA Championship, where he finished in a tie for third place behind Rory McIlroy, before defending a title for the first time in his career at the season finale, the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai. Also enjoyed a fine Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, forming a formidable partnership with Justin Rose over the first two days to help Europe record another victory over the USA. His win at the 2013 DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, made Stenson the first player to win both The Race to Dubai and the US PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup in the same season. Notched his highest finish in a Major as the runner-up to Phil Mickelson in The 142nd Open Championship at Muirfield in July 2013, in what was the early stages of a staggering return to form and a period of domination on both sides of the Atlantic. Has won nine individual titles on The European Tour, and also partnered fellow Swede Robert Karlsson to victory in the 2008 World Cup. A family friend introduced him to the game, and he got down to scratch by the age of 18. Won the 2000 Challenge Tour Rankings with a record of eight top ten finishes, which included three wins. Lives in Orlando and is coached by the Dubai-based Pete Cowen.
