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.

Of course, Lake Nona is home to Ernie Els, Henrik Stenson, Retief Goosen, Sergio Garcia, Trevor Immelman, Justin Rose, Ian Poulter and Annika Sorenstam, among others, so it shouldn't be too hard to keep the secret.
It wasn't the outfit. Tiger Woods was wearing a black shirt and hat, with charcoal-gray slacks.
