Stenson hasn’t won since his 2016 Open Championship triumph, but he’s kept up well enough to remain in the world’s top 10.
The Swede has a runner-up in Dubai and tied for third at the BMW PGA Championship against two elite fields.
Most recently, he tied for 13th at the PGA.
Stenson’s only played the Wyndham once since 2008 (MC, 2010).
He has positive strokes gained marks in all major categories except for around the green, which is a minimal negative. If he can drive it straight this week, he’ll get plenty of chances to fire at pins with wedges and low irons.
As the world’s top-ranked player in the field this week, Stenson could win off talent alone.
