World Number Nine Alex Noren targets 20th Commercial Bank Qatar Masters

 After winning four European Tour titles in five months, Noren will look to better his fourth-place finish in 2013 when he competes at Doha Golf Club for a ninth time.

As Noren looks ahead to a new European Tour season, the 34 year old is eager to return to Doha where he first competed in 2007 and recorded a tournament-best finish of fourth in 2013, having been tied for second behind eventual champion Chris Wood after 54 holes.


“I’ve played in the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters for quite a few years and I imagine it will be quite special for the 20th edition,” said Noren, who finished ninth in 2015 and started with two rounds of 69 in 2016 before fading at the weekend to 41st.


Noren shot a closing 63 to win the recent US$7 million Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa and become the first Swede to win four European Tour titles in a single season, having won the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open in July, the Omega European Masters in Switzerland in September, and the British Masters supported by Sky Sports in October. His Sun City success propelled him to a career-high of ninth in the Official World Golf Ranking and he became only the fourth Swede to enter the top ten following Stenson, Robert Karlsson and Jesper Parnevik.


“Swedes have done well in Doha in the past and there’s no reason why one of us couldn’t win this year. I’ve been playing really well and I’m in the winning habit,” Noren said.


First held in 1998, the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters helped establish Qatar as a world-class sporting venue and is considered the country’s annual ‘must-attend’ sporting and social event. Sitting at the heart of the European Tour’s Middle East swing, the tournament attracted over 26,000 spectators in 2016 and was broadcast to a global TV audience of over 400 million.
