Stenson is out for Houston, Masters practice due to flu

Henrik Stenson has pulled out of the Shell Houston Open with the flu, according to his Twitter account. The illness means he also will miss a practice session he had scheduled at Augusta National early this week. He still expects to play the Masters.

Stenson – who had planned an early trip to Augusta before the start of the Houston Open – is coming off of three top 5s in his past three events on the PGA Tour, including a runner-up finish at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He will turn 39 on Saturday.

In nine starts at the Masters, the Swede’s best finish came last year when he tied for 14th.
