Alex Noren

Alex Noren played several sports before focusing his attention on golf at age 8. Made his first hole-in-one at age 12. Played at Oklahoma State, where he started as a freshman and was a two-time All-America selection. Teammates included Hunter Mahan and Pablo Martin.
After eight years competing for the Swedish national team as an amateur, turned professional in 2005, placing third on the 2006 European Challenge Tour before his rookie season on the European Tour the next year. In his 10 European Challenge Tour starts, he never finished outside the top-seven, earning his first professional victory among those performances at the Rolex Trophy.
Won his first European Tour title at the 2009 Omega European Masters in Switzerland in September, defeating Bradley Dredge by two shots.
2011 Notes: Noren won twice to finish a career-best 14th in the Race to Dubai. Captured the Wales Open in June before winning the Nordea Masters in his native Sweden, where he won by a staggering eight shots over Richard Finch. His 2012 season was impressive, too, with seven top-10 finishes, helping him to place 24th in the Race to Dubai. His first win came at the 2009 Omega European Masters, where he holed a difficult bunker shot for eagle at the 15th hole to help him win by two. That season was interrupted by wrist and knee injuries, but the victory and winning two consecutive Shot of the Month Awards, the latter for that bunker shot, helped make amends.
2012 Notes: Played 24 events with seven top-10s. His best finish was T-3rd at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and Scottish Open.
2013 Notes: Played 20 events and made 15 cuts, including five top-10s. Best finish was T-4th at Qatar Masters, Nordea Masters, and BMW International Open. Finished 56th in the Race to Dubai.
2014 Notes: Missed all but two events due to tendinitis in both wrists. Finished 56th at the Open de Espana in mid-May. A week later, he withdrew from the BMW PGA Championship, following an opening-round 76.
2015 Notes: Bouncing back from his wrist problems, Noren posted three top-11 results in his first four starts, including runner-up at the Dubai Desert Classic. He won the Nordea Masters by four shots over Soren Kjeldsen. In 17 European Tour starts, he finished in the top-10 four times. He placed 37th in the Race to Dubai.
2016 Notes: Enjoyed his best year to date, despite a slow start. Earned his first top-10, a T-6th, at the Open de Espana, then a T-9th at the Volvo China Open. Nine weeks later, he finished 8th at the French Open. Over the course of the next 18 weeks, the Swede tasted victory four times, starting with a win at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open. He was two under par over his last seven holes to defeat Tyrrell Hatton by a shot. Four weeks later, he made it to the finals of the Aberdeen Asset Management Paul Lawrie Match Play, losing to Anthony Wall. At the Omega European Masters in the Alps, he overcame Scott Hend on the first playoff hole to win at Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club. Six weeks later, he won by two at the British Masters, and four weeks after that won the Nedbank Golf Challenge. With that victory, he climbed to 9th in the Official World Golf Ranking, becoming the fourth Swede to enter the top-10 of the rankings and the first Swede to win four times in a single season. Finished T-23rd at the DP World Tour Dubai to rank 3rd in the Race to Dubai. He ended his year with a T-5th at the ISPS Handa World Cup, along with David Lingmerth on the Sweden team, at Kingston Heath Golf Club in Australia.
2017 Notes: Enjoyed his first top-10 when he reached the quarterfinals (T-5th) of the WGC-Dell Match Play, where he lost to the eventual winner Dustin Johnson. Finished 10th at The Players Championship, and won his biggest event to date with a victory at the BMW PGA Championship, thanks to a final-round 62 for a two-shot winning margin over Francesco Molinari. It was Noren's ninth win on the European Tour. Finished T-10th at the French Open. Had his second top-10 finish in a major (in 17 starts) with his T-6th at the British Open, and another top-10 at the Omega European Masters. Ended the year 8th in the Race to Dubai.
2018 Notes: In his first season with a PGA Tour card, played 18 events, making 14 cuts with three top-10 finishes. Was 43rd in the FedExCup standings. On the European Tour, played 12 events and made 12 cuts with four top-10s. Finished 6th in the Race to Dubai. Joined the PGA Tour, and in his first start of the year, finished T-2nd at the Farmers Insurance Open, where he lost a six-hole playoff to Jason Day in a Monday finish. Was 3rd at the Honda Classic, one shot away from joining the playoff between Justin Thomas and Luke List. At the WGC-Dell Match Play, Noren defeated Justin Thomas, 5 and 3, in the consolation match. Was the only player to advance as far as the quarterfinals in 2017 and '18. Returned to the European Tour. Playing at the BMW PGA Championship, he finished with a final-round 67 to finish T-3rd, three shots behind winner Francesco Molinari. Won the French Open by a shot over Russell Knox, Chris Wood, and Julian Suri. Made his Ryder Cup debut in France and went 2-1-0 for the week. Defeated Bryson DeChambeau, 5 and 4, in the singles. Finished the year with a T-9th at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai and T-8th at the Hero World Challenge.
2019 Notes: Best finish, T-17th at the WGC-Dell Match Play. In group play won two of three matches but lost to Haotong Li in a playoff.
