Henrik Stenson’s second round of the Tour Championship at East Lake — the final stop in the battle for the 2013 FedEx Cup title and the accompanying $10 million grand prize — didn’t get off to the most auspicious start. Stenson broke his 4-wood on the driving range before the round, meaning he had to play with only 13 clubs. Stenson, however, overcame the minor setback and shot a 4-under 66 to retain his lead over Adam Scott.

Stenson, who has only two bogeys through 36 holes of play, spoke about the pressure of being in the lead heading into the weekend:
I’ve won quite a few of my wins from being in the front. I’ve always looked at it like if I’m ahead the other guy’s got to play better to catch up. So I don’t mind it at all. They got more work to do than I have, in that sense.
So I’m pretty cool about that. I’m just going to go out and try to do the best I can for the next two days, and hopefully that’s good enough (USA Today Sports).
