NOREN CONFIRMS NEDBANK TITLE DEFENSE

Alex Noren will return to Sun City to defend his Nedbank Golf Challenge hosted by Gary Player title on November 9-12 as he aims to secure his second Rolex Series victory. The current World Number 14 capped an incredible run of form with his win in his debut appearance in the event last year, as he became the first player from Sweden to secure four European Tour titles in a single season. He went on to write his name into the history books again this year as the first ever winner of a Rolex Series event – the European Tour’s new premium category of eight tournaments on the Race to Dubai – when he lifted the BMW PGA Championship trophy at Wentworth in May.
