Personal Life of Henrik Stenson
Henrik Stenson married to his fellow country girls Emma Lofgren in 2007 in Dubai after he first met her a decade ago at the University of South Carolina at least a decade ago. After three years of their marriage Emma gave birth to a baby girl Lisa and two years later a baby boy Karl.
Stenson turned professional in 1999 and next year he topped the money rankings on the second tier of the European Tour. In 2001, Henrik Stenson joined the main European Tour and then won 7 European Tour Titles. From 2005 to 2008 Stenson was invariably in the top 10 of the European Order of Merit.
First time in 2006 he came in the Top 10 golfer’s list and remained for next two years. In February 2007 Stenson became the first golfer from Sweden to win World Golf Championships in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship and then jumped into the top 5 Golfers Rankings. He kept on doing the good work and currently he is No. 3 golfer in the PGA Tour Rankings.
Henrik Stenson has also represented Europe in the Ryder Cup twice in 2006 and then in 2008 where he was part of the winning team in 2006.
The only missing thing in the illustrious career of Henrik Stenson is not winning any major golfing championship, despite being on the golfing circuit for almost 15 years now as a professional golfer. Hope he will soon break this jinx and win a major title soon.

Henrik Stenson Quote
Golf is a game where you are never going to get finished. You are never going to get kind of the end result. SO there is always room for improvement.
