Henrik Stenson Withdraws From U.S. Open with Neck, Knee Issues

June 18, 2016

Henrik Stenson’s 2016 U.S. Open came to an early close at Oakmont after he withdrew from the event before finishing his second round.

Stenson opened with a one-under 69 Friday morning before turning around and beginning his second round Friday afternoon. He had just two holes left when play was suspended due to darkness, but his second round had not been nearly as sterling as his first.

Stenson was 10-over through 16 holes with no birdies on his scorecard when he left Oakmont Friday evening. The Swede didn’t show up to play his last two holes Saturday morning.

Stenson later tweeted that he withdrew because of minor neck and knee issues, and he expects to return to competition next week.
