Noren won two out of three games on his Ryder Cup debut in 2018, having made the world’s top 10 following wrist injuries that restricted him to a mere two European Tour events four years earlier.

He 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 to finish third on the Race to Dubai money list.

The following May a stunning last-day 62 swept him to victory in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, which brought with it a three-year Open exemption. He had his best finish in a major with his joint sixth place at Royal Birkdale two months later.

In addition he has twice lifted his home Nordea Masters and in July 2018 grabbed the HNA French Open at Le Golf National, the scene of Europe’s victory two months later.

Noren 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 finishing third at the WGC-Dell Match Play and Honda Classic, where he missed another play-off by one stroke.
