We asked Alex Noren to recreate his stunning second shot on the 18th at Wentworth last year as he prepares to defend the BMW PGA Championship title
Alex Noren produced a stunning finish to snatch victory in last year’s BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
The Swede started the final round in 2017 seven shots off the pace but carded a course-record, 10-under 62 to end up on 11 under and two ahead of Italy’s Francesco Molinari.
Noren was tied for the lead after eight birdies in his first 16 holes and then put the icing on the cake with an eagle at the par-five 18th to win the inaugural Rolex Series event.
After finding the centre of the fairway with his tee shot, he hit a pure five-iron from 205 yards which landed on the green and rolled past the pin on the right before coming to rest just six feet behind the hole.
Noren then confidently drained his eagle putt to set a clubhouse target that nobody could pass.
The 35-year-old is back at Wentworth to defend the title this year and ahead of the tournament, we asked him to recreate his famous second shot on the 18th.
