Henrik stenson bombs it like Tiger Woods and closes out tournaments like Raymond Floyd, but his on-course demeanor calls to mind an even more iconic figure. With his stoic visage, dark sunglasses and Nordic accent, "he's like the Terminator," says Luke Donald. Last year Stenson, a 30-year-old native of Goteborg, Sweden, made his debut at the Masters as a talented tease who wowed with his skills but had yet to develop a Schwarzenegger-like ability to blow away anybody and anything in his path. To very little fanfare Stenson shot a jittery 74-77 to miss the cut. Since then he has morphed into a ruthless winning machine. In the last 12 months Stenson has vanquished Retief Goosen and Padraig Harrington with an eagle in sudden death at the BMW International Open, holed the clinching putt at the Ryder Cup, mowed down Woods and Ernie Els in a final-round shootout in Dubai, stormed to victory at the Accenture Match Play Championship and surged to No. 5 in the World Ranking.
