2012 Masters First Round Update: Stenson Fell Apart

Gallery Icon

Michael Garcia - April 6, 2012

Henrik Stenson was cruising right along in the Masters today. He shot five under on the front nine, got it to six under for a while, before a bogey on hole sixteen put him back at five under. Stenson got a par on 17 to keep his lead. People were predicting he would break his Masters career low round of 70. Then he stepped up to the 18th tee.

Stenson carded an EIGHT on the 18th, to drop to one under, for a total of 71. He went from first to a tie with a whole bunch of guys in 9th 14th place. Augusta giveth, and Augusta taketh away, I guess.
