Guess who's back, back again: Stenson, 43, shows ability to persevere at Hero

NASSAU, Bahamas – After tying for 44th two weeks ago at the European Tour’s finale in Dubai, Henrik Stenson headed straight to the range for an emergency session with swing coach Pete Cowen.

“For once we managed to pick the right things to work on, I guess, and I came here with certainly a better feeling,” said Stenson, who needed a special exemption to qualify for this week’s Hero World Challenge.

He’ll leave the Bahamas feeling even better.

Stenson ended a two year winning drought by shooting 6-under 66 Saturday and notching a one-shot victory over Jon Rahm, his first win since the 2017 Wyndham Championship.
