Fit-again Alex Noren recorded his first top 10 since June 2013 by carding a 7-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.
His low 18 of the week featured birdies at one, five, 10, 14 and 18 and an eagle two at the par-4 16th hole. It lifted him to solo ninth spot on 13-under 275 and marked an important step on the Swede's bid to get back into the world's top 50. Noren started this week ranked world No. 654 after playing just two events in 2014 due to tendonitis in both wrists. Last week's T37 in Abu Dhabi and a top 10 here has him pointing in the right direction again although there is much work ahead to reach his peak ranking of 48 in October 2012. Noren hit 14 greens in regulation in his closing 55 and was 4-for-4 in scrambling. Jan 24 - 10:38 AM

The signs look good again for Alex Noren after he continued his comeback from injury with a 5-under-par 33-34=67 at the Commerical Bank Qatar Masters.

The Swede played just two events in 2014 after suffering tendonitis in both wrists so has a medical extension for 2015. He made his return with a T37 in Abu Dhabi last week and continued his good work with a bogey-free 67 in Doha on Wednesday. Noren is a three-time European Tour winner and was T4 on his last appearance in this event in 2013. Today, he was out in 33 after birdies at the first, seventh and eighth and made it three in four holes with another at 10. Noren added one last par breaker at 16 to finish two behind first-round leader Oliver Fisher.

Alex Noren carded a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in his opening round of the Open de España.

Not too shabby for his first meaningful round of golf since having surgery on his left wrist last fall. Noren split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation at PGA Catalunya Resort in Girona on Thursday. He opened with a birdie-3 at the 10th hole and added four more plus an eagle-3 at No. 15. Four bogeys and a double helped neutralize the good work he submitted. The Swede has little cachet in formats that don't include the European Tour.

Alex Noren is listed in the preliminary field of next week's Open de España on the European Tour.

The Swede has been sidelined since fall after having surgery to repair his left wrist. He made his last start in Turkey where he missed the cut and dropped to 90th in the Official World Golf Ranking. Thanks to his injury sabbatical, he's fallen to 168th. So, if your format includes his home circuit, keep a look out. He totaled five top-sixes in 2013.

Alex Noren alerted his followers on Monday that he's finally going to sit out to repair his left wrist.

"Waiting for an appointment for wrist surgery and hopefully will be back playing in 4-5 months. Gonna be great to play again without pain." The Swede first suffered the injury during The Open Championship where he withdrew after one round (12-over-par 83). He's played only five times since and cashed three times. Noren completed only 36 holes of last week's Turkish Airlines Open before calling it quits due to the same malady. Since he's not eligible for any of the big events on the PGA TOUR and sits 90th in the Official World Golf Ranking, we'll leave him off our Injury Report.

Alexander Noren withdrew from The Open Championship following his opening round, citing a wrist injury.

The Swede split only two (of 14) fairways and hit six greens in regulation en route to a 12-over-par 40-43=83. He erased a lone birdie with seven bogeys and three doubles. Because he is a non-member on the PGA TOUR and not eligible for the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, we will leave him off our Injury Report.

Alexander Noren makes his first appearance at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship since falling in the first round to Geoff Ogilvy in 2010.

While history may not be on his side at Dove Mountain, current form is. He tied for fourth at the Qatar Masters several weeks ago. He will take on a slumping Dustin Johnson in his first match in the Jones Bracket.

Alexander Noren carded a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the British Open to improve to even-par 280 for the week.

After swallowing bogeys on the fifth and sixth holes, he bounced back with a birdie on the par-5 seventh. He then added birdies at 11 and 18 to finish the day inside the top 10. It is the first time he's found his way inside the top 10 in four trips.

Although Alexander Noren closed with a 5-over-par 39-38=77, he recorded a seven-stroke victory over Richard Finch at the Nordea Masters in Stockholm, Sweden.

Conditions at Bro Hof Slott Country Club were extremely difficult as winds howled all day. To wit, European Tour winners Fredrik Andersson Hed and Steve Webster carded a 90 and 91, respectively, in their final rounds. Hed carded a 12 on the par-3 17th, which is an exposed peninsula green; Webster took an 11 on the hole. Noren went wire-to-wire this week, finishing in 15-under 67-66-63-77=273. He slept on an 11-stroke lead following 54 holes; the 63 in the third round was a course record. This is the Swede's third career European Tour victory, and second this season (Wales Open). He's already exempt into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in two weeks, and will be making his debut at the PGA Championship the following week.

Alexander Noren carded a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in his final round of the Saab Wales Open to record a two-stroke victory over Gregory Bourdy and Anders Hansen.

He circled just two birdies all day, the last of which at the par-4 12th hole, and he swallowed a bogey on the drivable par-4 15th, but still managed the lowest score of the six guys within three shots of the lead entering the round. The Swede held the outright lead after 36 and 54 holes, and was the only golfer inside the final top seven without a round in the 60s in the final two rounds. He finished at 9-under 67-67-71-70=275 at Celtic Manor for his second career European Tour victory. Among the other spoils that go with the trophy, the win also secures a return trip to the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in August. He placed T53 at Firestone last year.

With John Rollins and Scott Piercy at the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee and impractically located to be the first two alternates at the British Open, Sweden's Alexander Noren is now the 1st alternate.

Ross Fisher is the guy most likely to withdraw since his wife could go into labor at any time. Australia's Scott Strange moves up to 2nd alternate.
