Henrik Stenson didn't have a front nine to remember.

Sitting at four over after struggling to five bogeys in his first nine holes, Stenson wasted little time to make the back nine more memorable.

Stenson took aim, driving his tee shot 306 yards. With 152 yards remaining to the hole, Stenson lined up and fired away.

The shot went down, and even Stenson himself was somewhat surprised. 

The big eagle brought Stenson to 2-over with seven holes remaining. He looks to carry over the momentum as he trails Rickie Fowler and his record-setting day by nine strokes.
