DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES - FEBRUARY 05: Henrik Stenson of Sweden acknowledges the crowd on the 16th hole during the second round of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic on February 5, 2010 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. (Photo by Andrew Redington/Getty Images)
Henrik Stenson's epic collapse on the final hole of the Masters first round yesterday, ruined what looked like a magnificent 17 holes of play and wiped out what could have been a first place tie for the lead.

The Swede made it look easy on the front nine, with two eagles and a birdie to get a 5-under.  That's where he stood when he got to the 18th hole.  His drive on 18 went into the woods.

Stenson's second shot hit a root.  His third shot off the pine needles barely made it to the green and then he three-putted for an ugly 8.

He ended up with a 1-under 71 for the day.  Lee Westwood was the first-round leader with a 5-under 67.

Here is video of Stenson duffing it up in all of its shortened agony.
