Alex Noren must like coming to Britain to play his golf. He can now add the BMW PGA Championship to a haul that also includes the British Masters and the Scottish Open as he claimed his third title on British soil in 11 months.
Hailed as the flagship event on the European Tour, the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth also kicks off the Rolex Series. The series will have a minimum of $7 Million in prize money per event all designed to attract the best in the game. It certainly worked as the likes of Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson returned to Wentworth. Rose would push on the final day to finish in top 12 whilst Stenson found himself in contention. That was until the rain began to fall.
The rain affected many as they chased down the clubhouse leader. Alex Noren was perhaps fortunate to avoid the downpour but take nothing away from the Swede as he obliterated the Wentworth West Course.
His final round was simply sublime as he broke the course record thanks to an eagle on the final hole. That eagle meant he would finish with a card of 62. His 10 under par round not only broke the course record but propelled him into pole position with a two-shot lead over the chasing pack.
