No. 3 Henrik Stenson

World No. 5 Henrik Stenson earns the lofty honor of highest-ranked to miss the cut this week.

The 40-year-old Swede tied for seventh at the Valspar last month but hasn’t been himself as of late. He missed the cut in his last two events, the Houston Open and API, and withdrew from the WGC-Mexico Championship with illness.

Pair that with his modest Augusta record relative to the other three majors (four missed cuts and no better than T14th in 12 starts) and perhaps his rounds of 77 and 75 to miss the weekend by one isn’t too surprising.

Like Reed, Stenson wasn’t a total mess out there. He played his final 31 holes in a respectable three-over-par but could not overcome Thursday’s bogey-par-bogey-bogey-bogey start.

He joins the next man on this list as two of four golfers to miss the cut while still earning coveted Masters goblets.
