HENRIK STENSON | US OPEN
Henrik Stenson failed to show up to complete his second round of the US Open - with the likelihood that he'd miss the cut.
The Swede was sitting pretty on one-under-par after his opening round but faltered badly on Friday afternoon and was ten-over-par through 16 holes, with no birdies, eight bogeys and a double-bogey on the 11th.
When play started again at 7.30am on Saturday (12.30pm local time), soon afterwards Twitter users noticed a WD by Stenson's name on the leaderboard.
And, as writer Ron Mintz revealed on Twitter, Stenson did not show up for the resumption of his second round, where he was nine-over-par and two shots off the current cut line, and also failed to give a reason to the USGA for his withdrawal.

This is a rare occurrence for the Swede, with it being only his second mid-tournament withdrawal in 153 career PGA Tour starts. The other came at the 2012 Wyndham Championship after opening round of 68.
UPDATE: Afterwards, Stenson tweeted that it was minor injuries which forced his withdrawal at Oakmont.
Minor neck and knee issues, nothing Major! Hope to be back in action next week! H— Henrik Stenson (@henrikstenson) June 18, 2016
