NOREN CRUISES TO NORDEA MASTERS WIN

Great comeback back for super Swede after suffering tendinitis in both wrists

Swede Alex Noren sealed his second Nordea Masters title in some style on Sunday, carding a final round 71 to win by four shots at PGA Sweden National.

After beginning his round with a birdie on the par five first, Noren, the winner of this event in 2011, bogeyed the second and his two shot overnight lead was halved.

But the 32 year old, who began the 2015 European Tour season on a medical extension after suffering tendinitis in both wrists last year, reeled off 15 straight pars before birdieing the last to finish 12 shots under par for the tournament.

Noren said: “I’m so pleased. Now I can relax a bit because it was probably the toughest weekend in terms of wind I’ve ever felt. 

“When you’re in the lead you can think a lot, and it was very tough. I hit a few bad shots – I think on the seventh, eighth and ninth – but I played quite well on the back nine.

“I didn’t have to look for my ball in the rough or anything, so it was not that stressful.

“I wasn’t too confident coming into this week because I’ve had a tough time in the wind lately and here you really have to hit the right shots to get around. I got better as the week went on.

“I’ve had a few good tournaments but I haven’t played well on the last day. When I’ve had a chance – like at Wentworth, I had a small chance – I’ve had a slow round. 

“I kept my poise and tried to hit the shots we needed, and it worked. My caddie really helped calm me down and make me stick to my routine.

“You have to enjoy the good days in this game because you have plenty of bad ones.”

A birdie at the par five 18th saw Søren Kjeldsen, winner of last week’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Hosted by the Rory Foundation, finish on eight under in second place.

He said: “I was really determined to come and play well here. I didn’t quite know how to react after last week and I wasn’t sure how much it took out of me, but Alistair helped a lot and on Tuesday lunchtime we said it’s time to get back to work.
