In the week before Brian Harman lifted the Claret Jug at Royal Liverpool, Norrman grabbed his first PGA Tour title at the Barbasol Championship.

In the week before Brian Harman lifted the Claret Jug at Royal Liverpool, Norrman grabbed his first PGA Tour title at the Barbasol Championship.

The event was co-sanctioned with the DP World Tour and he beat England’s Nathan Kimsey with a par on the first play-off hole.

Under two months later, he added the Horizon Irish Open, a closing 65 leaving him one ahead of Hurly Long and moving him up from 158th in the world to 76th. He had not even been in the top 300 at the end of June.

He reached fourth on the world amateur rankings while at college in America and helped Sweden win the European title in 2019. On turning professional two years later, he was invited to the BMW International Open in Germany and finished tied fifth, his performance including a hole-in-one albatross on the 270-yard par-4 16th in the third round.

If he had aced the par-3 17th he would have won a car. Most of his golf the following season was played on the Korn Ferry Tour after he tied for second at their qualifying school and he did well enough to gain promotion to the main circuit.

His major debut came at last season’s US Open and now comes his first Open appearance.
