Things you may not know about Henrik “The Ice Man” Stenson.

His nickname is not “The Ice Man” for nothing!  On Sunday afternoon he lived up to that reputation as he methodically took Royal Troon apart and finally brought the course to its knees! After a sly smile at Phil Mickelson early in the round as Phil almost holed out  from off the green, he was all business and knew he had a hard task ahead.  He became a golfing machine, and put on a display of ball striking never before seen in a Major Championship!  Thanks to  of Golf Digest for bringing us information on Henrik we otherwise would not have known!
