Achieved five wins in under a year, a run which began with him taking the 2016 Scottish Open at Castle Stuart before he added the Omega European Masters, the British Masters and then the Nedbank Challenge in South Africa and finally the BMW PGA Championship.

Alex Noren  

Won two of his three games on his Ryder Cup debut in September 2018 after climbing into the world’s top ten, four years after wrist injuries restricted him to two events in the 2014 European Tour season. 

In May 2017, a stunning last-day 62 swept him to victory in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth and he had his best finish in a major with his joint sixth place at Royal Birkdale two months later.

Has also twice lifted his home Nordea Masters and in July 2018 grabbed the HNA French Open at Le Golf National, scene of Europe’s Ryder Cup victory two months later. 

Also made his presence felt on the PGA Tour in 2018, losing a six-hole play-off for the Farmers Insurance Open to Jason Day and missed out on another play-off by a single stroke at the Honda Classic.
