Alex Noren played several sports before focusing on golf at age 8. He made his first hole-in-one at age 12. He played at Oklahoma State, where he started as a freshman and was a two-time All-America selection. His teammates included Hunter Mahan and Pablo Martin.
After eight years competing for the Swedish national team as an amateur, he turned professional in 2005, placing third on the 2006 European Challenge Tour before his rookie season on the European Tour the next year.

He won his first European Tour title at the 2009 Omega European Masters in Switzerland in September, holing a bunker shot for an eagle on the 15th hole and defeating Bradley Dredge by two shots. He also won two consecutive Shot of the Month Awards, the latter for that bunker shot.
