Super Swede Noren Seals Spectacular Win2 min read

Posted on: 28th May 2017

Sweden’s Alex Noren fired a simply stunning final round of 62 to win the BMW PGA Championship by two shots as he ensured the European Tour’s new Rolex Series got off to a spectacular start.

Noren eagled the final hole after a sublime 225 yards five iron approach shot to five feet to seal a quite brilliant display over Wentworth Club’s revamped West Course, taking full advantage of the immaculate new greens.

The 34 year old, who also posted eight birdies in his ten under par round, had started seven shots behind third round leader Andrew Dodt and matched the biggest comeback in the history of the BMW PGA Championship, previously achieved by Simon Khan in 2010 and Rory McIlroy in 2014.

Noren also produced a grandstand finish in his last European Tour triumph, carding a closing 63 to come from six shots back to win the Nedbank Golf Challenge last November. That was his fourth title of the 2016 season – and he made it five European Tour wins in just 17 appearances, three of which have come on UK soil after victories in the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open and British Masters supported by Sky Sports.

After posting the clubhouse target of 11 under par, Noren had to wait a further two hours as 11 more groups finished, but the other contenders gradually fell away, with Italian Francesco Molinari, playing in the penultimate group, birdieing the final two holes in a round of 68 to claim second place on nine under par.

Noren is the first Swede to win the BMW PGA Championship and his compatriot Henrik Stenson, the Open Champion, closed with a 68 to finish on eight under par in a share third place with Japan’s Hideto Tanihara (67) and Belgium’s Nicolas Colsaerts, who eagled the 12th and the 18th holes en route to a round of 65.

A crowd of 109,684 – the second highest in the history of the BMW PGA Championship – watched the four tournament days and Celebrity Pro Am, as the European Tour launched the Rolex Series in style, with a further seven events to follow in 2017.
