Noren amongst the world's best?
Sweden's Alex Noren began Sunday seven shots behind the overnight leaders, only to produce one of the very best final rounds the European Tour has ever seen to win the BMW PGA Championship by two shots.
In what was a display of magnificent ball-striking, Noren fired eight birdies and an eagle on the 18th to break the Wentworth West Course record and claim the European Tour's flagship event. This win - his 5th in the past 12 months - sees Noren now sitting 8th in the World Rankings, firmly established amongst the world's elite heading into the second major of the year in a few weeks' time.
But there was also another story which grabbed our attention from the week's play at Wentworth. Ernie Els chipped in for eagle from the rough at the par-5 12th only to proceed to call a two-shot penalty on himself for putting his ball back in the wrong position from a plugged lie. After his round Els explained that he had lifted and checked whether his ball was plugged before he hit his shot, and was uncomfortable with how the ball came out and wouldn't have been able to live with his actions had he not called a penalty on himself.
A brilliant display of honesty and sportsmanship from the 'Big Easy' when he could easily have picked his ball out of the hole and marched on to the next tee without saying a word.
