Henrik Stenson: Quad Bogey Sinks Great Round

Update: Stenson stood on the 18th tee Thursday at 5-under, leading The Masters by two strokes, but a quadruple bogey on the closing hole sent him to a disappointing first-round 71.

Recommendation: A professional golfer learns to deal with adversity, but this experience, especially since it came on the closing hole, will give him a long, painful night of pondering his round. If you put stock in the effect of a player's psyche on his next round, you might want to steer clear of Stenson for Friday's play.
