Did you know?

After attending Oklahoma State University, Noren turned pro in 2005 and played his rookie season on the European Tour in 2007. His first win on the tour came in 2009, with further wins in 2011 and 2015. Any thoughts that Noren would simply become just another of the tour's "journeyman" pros were dispelled in 2016. Starting the year as the world's 96th best player, he won four events to become only the fourth ever Swedish player to achieve world Top 10 status as a professional golfer (following in the footsteps of Jesper Parnevik, Robert Karlsson and Henrik Stenson).
