Cape Town - Alex Noren spent years dreaming of playing in the Nedbank Golf Challenge hosted by Gary Player, and in a dream season for the Swede he won “Africa’s Major” with a magnificent final round of 63 at the Gary Player Country Club on Sunday.

Noren, as he has been for much of this European Tour season, was in a class of his own as he played his way to a six-shot victory on 14-under-par 274.

This is his fourth European Tour victory in a season that also saw him finish runner-up once and in the top 10 a further three times.
