The Tour Championship, Presented by Coca Cola. Henrik Heads The Field. September 20 2013

Henrik Stenson heads the field in the Tour Championship, presented by Coca Cola in the first round at East Lake Golf Club. Henrik Stenson / Tannen Maury/European Pressphoto Agency Last week Henrik vented his anger at shooting a 74 in the last round of the BMW by beheading his driver and damaging a locker. He was all calmness and serenity today as he breezed around East Lake Golf Course in -6 under par 64, to top the leaderboard. Speaking of his meltdown and his round today, Henrik said; “This was a good turnaround mentally. I stayed very levelheaded. Kept the head on , on both myself and my driver. It kind of builds up and eventually it goes over the limit, I just needed to realize the world is a good place again, I was just tired, and I pushed myself over the edge. That’s not the best frame of mind to play good golf. I’m really delighted with the change I made. I love playing great golf courses, and obviously this is one of them. ' Henrik also has a troublesome left wrist, but hopes some ice will improve the condition; “I hope it’s just a one-off that will go away,” Adam Scott is alone in second place at -5 under par with his opening round of 65. Billy Horschel and Steve Stricker are in third place at -4 under par with their first rounds of 66. The tournament favorite and World number one Tiger Woods recorded three bogey's and no birdies in his opening round of +3 over par 73.
