Henrik Stenson sets sights on Majors

Swede Henrik Stenson has set his sights on lifting one of golf's Majors and ending Europe's 8 year drought. Paul Lawrie was the last European to win a major, the Open in 1999 at Carnoustie.

"I can't say I should deliver a major, but it would be nice to do it," he said. "I've played in them all and that's the first step. I've had reasonable results and now I'm focusing on being as good as I can be when we turn out for the majors.

"It would be nice to be the first Swede to win a major, but Tiger, Phil, (Jim) Furyk and players like that are all doing well," he added. "Tiger seems to nick two of them a year, so that makes it harder."

"I always enjoyed watching the British Open; that was my childhood dream, it was playing in the Ryder Cup and winning the British Open and one of those has come true," said Stenson. "But after playing in the U.S. Open, I think it suits my game better.

"You can only try four times a year and if you play well enough you can be up there," he noted. "But it's hard to say you can do it, but hopefully I will have another 10 years and another 40 shots, and that gives you better odds."
