The last champion on the PGA TOUR to find as many fairways off the tee on the weekend was Kenny Perry at the 2008 the Memorial Tournament presented by Morgan Stanley. Perry also played the final two rounds missing only two fairways, going 26 out of 28. ...

Stenson did not record a single bogey over his last 19 holes of play during his victory at The PLAYERS Championship this week. He's the third PLAYERS champion since 1983 to play his last 19 holes bogey-free. Stenson joins Davis Love III in 2003 and Fred Couples in 1996.

This is Stenson's first PGA TOUR win since he claimed the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship in 2007.
