It was a very lucky day for Henrik Stenson as after a long struggle he finally won the Deutsche Bank Championship 2013. This victory has not only given him a title but also he has moved to the top of FedEx Cup standings above Tiger Woods. The 37 year old Swedish golfer, had ended-up being a runner-up to Phil Mickelson at a major and to Tiger Woods at a World Golf Championship but this time he was successful in winning the title. Stenson won the Deutsche Bank Championship by two shots with a five-under-par round of 66. The American golfer Steve Stricker finished the tournament at the second place and the Canadian golfer Graham DeLaet finished at the third position.
“Pretty perfect timing, I guess,” Stenson said. “There’s never a bad time to win a golf tournament, I know that much. I did everything that I can do, especially on a day that wasn’t going my way for a long time.”

“It’s been a great week, ball‑striking wise, and the putter was working nicely for me here on the weekend,” Stenson said.
The highest career ranking of Henrik Stenson is number four but he was not able to perform well in past seasons and lost his rank. In 2012 season he was not among even the top 200 players in the ranking but with continuous improvement and a title win now has placed him on the sixth spot in the World ranking.
Henrik Stenson said that he has done enough good performances to know that he can play this game at a very high level and not to be able to be anywhere near that standard is frustrating.
