An absolutely dominant performance by Henrik Stenson on Sunday led to a four shot win at the 2009 Players. A clinic. Textbook. Any adjective you can think of that refers to perfection would apply here, it was that good.
A bogey free final round for one of the world’s best, and most underrated golfers, needs a little more context. TPC Sawgrass was playing pretty tough with big numbers popping up all over the place, dashing the hopes of 54-hole leader Alex Cjeka and one Eldrick Woods, among others. But Stenson wasn’t fazed in the slightest, laying precision bombs all over the place and putting on the proverbial blinders en route to today’s 66.
Simply flawless…I don’t know how much else can be said.
