Noren wins BMW PGA Championship

Swedish golfer Alex Noren rediscovered his fantastic form of 2016 to win the BMW PGA Championship on Sunday 28th May.

Noren started the final day seven shots behind before getting round in a 10 under 62 to finish 11 under overall.┬áHe made six birdies before rolling in an eagle putt from 6 feet on No. 18 to complete what he described as “probably the best round of my life.”

He won by two strokes as Francesco Molinari sunk a birdie on the final hole moment after Hideto Tanihara had failed to – settling for par.

It set the clubhouse target of 11-under 277 and Noren had to wait more than two hours to see if his lead would hold in the European Tour’s signature event. No one got within a shot.

It was Noren’s ninth win on the European Tour, four of which came in a 10-event stretch from July to November last year.

On behalf of all of us here at Wentworth Club, we would like to congratulate Alex on this spectacular win!
