Henrik Stenson might try losing his cool more often.
The Swedish veteran holds a one-stroke lead teeing off Friday morning for the second round of the Tour Championship in Atlanta. He has been both hot and hot-tempered down the home stretch of the golf season.
After strong finishes at two recent majors and a World Golf Championship, Stenson earned a FedEx Cup playoff victory at the Deutsche Bank Championship. But things did not go so well at the BMW Championship earlier this week, when he was battling a sore wrist.
Stenson smashed his driver on the final hole and then tore up a locker inside the Conway Farms clubhouse.
"I'll tell you, I mean, I've always been a bit of a hothead," he said. "It kind of builds up and eventually it goes over the limit."
