VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) Racked with nerves, Alex Noren could barely line up his 6-foot eagle putt on the final hole that would help to clinch him the BMW PGA Championship on Sunday.

The Swedish golfer still managed to roll it into the center of the cup, where most of his putts ended up during the best round of his life.

Rediscovering his sensational form of 2016, Noren shot a course-record 10-under 62 at Wentworth and came from seven strokes back in the final round to win the signature event on the European Tour against the odds.
