Henrik Stenson is 18 holes away from winning his first major championship– not to mention becoming the first Swede in history. Stenson, 40, is arguably the best player in the game without a major, and obviously you don’t secure such a distinguished tag without a number of close calls (including a runner-up finish in 2013 to Phil Mickelson).
(Stenson and Mickelson have separated themselves from the field as Stenson has a six-shot advantage over the next competitor. At this point, it is most likely too many shots to make up, especially at Royal Troon…)
For those who aren’t aware of what a legend Stenson is — which appears to be the case for the average American fan — ever wonder what’s he really like? Maybe not, but you should. And who better to ask the questions than Henrik himself? Yes, no joke. Just watch the above video from 2011.
