Alexander Noren

A graduate in Business Marketing from Oklahoma State University, this talented Swede has made steady progress since progressing from the Challenge Tour to the main tour in 2007. Although he was hampered by wrist and then knee injuries last season, Noren captured a maiden victory on the European Tour when he claimed the 2009 Omega European Masters (the first qualifying tournament for the 2010 Ryder Cup team). One of the faces in the crowd for that maiden win as none other than Buzz Aldrin, the American astronaut who was the second man ever to walk on the moon . . . . Noren earned his full tour card for the 2007 via the Challenge Tour, where he won the Rolex Trophy . . . . lists cars and football amongst his hobbies.
