Henrik Stenson 'no shows' on Saturday

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.
