Alex Noren wins Nedbank Challenge, up to 3rd on money list

SUN CITY, South Africa (AP) Alex Noren won the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa on Sunday, finishing with a sublime 63 for a 6-shot victory and his fourth title of a remarkable season on the European Tour.

Noren was 9-under through the first 11 holes of his final round at Sun City and came from six shots behind overnight leader Jeunghun Wang to win with ease on 14 under par.

Wang was second on 8 under after four bogeys in his last six holes saw him slip to a 3-over 75 on the last day.

The triumph will move Noren up to third on the tour's Race to Dubai money list, giving him a chance to be crowned Europe's No. 1 golfer at the season-ending World Tour Championship in Dubai next weekend.
