COME­BACK KING

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Inside The Ropes -

Alex Noren, the first Swede to win four times in a Euro­pean Tour sea­son in 2016 when he won the Ned­bank Chal­lenge at Sun City (above), has claims to be the World Come­back Player of the Year. In 2014 he was out of tour­na­ment golf for an en­tire year due to ten­donitis in both wrists. A spe­cial re­ward for him, hav­ing risen to No 9 in the world from No 704 in Jan­uary 2015, is that he has earned his first ever in­vite to the Mas­ters in 2017 at the age of 34.
