Super Swede Henrik Stenson (pictured by Getty Images) led the field in greens in regulation at the 2014 U.S. Open.
The Swedish golfer recorded 75 per cent greens hit in regulation, by finding the ‘dance floor’ on 54 times from an overall possibility of 72.
This is very impressive golf stats around a very tough layout. Even more so when you consider the new champion, Martin Kaymer, posted a 62.50% golf stat by finding 45 of 72, to finish tied 18 in this performance category.
It would appear Stenson has continued the ball striking prowess that won him the Race to Dubai and FedEx Cup titles in 2013; and surely when the putts start to drop, he will find himself in the winner’s enclosure once again.
