OAKMONT, Pa. -- Henrik Stenson didn't even bother to come back to Oakmont Country Club on Saturday morning to finish out his second round of the 2016 U.S. Open. He knew he wasn't going to make the cut.

Stenson officially goes on the record as a no-show disqualification, but after shooting a 1-under 69 in his first round on Friday, the Swede was 10 over par through 16 holes in his second round. At 9 over for the championship, even with two to play, Stenson declared his week finished.

Of course, there was some social media reaction to Stenson not showing -- first, trying to figure out why, then, later, from other pros who were adamant that they would have came back to finish off and sign for their full 36-hole body of work, even if they knew that meant they'd be slamming their trunk.
