Noren took an 11-shot lead into the final day of the Nordea Masters at Bro Hof Slott Golf Club after a course-record 63 yesterday.

And the 29-year-old was never in serious danger of letting such a commanding advantage slip, with no-one able to mount a charge as strong winds sent scores soaring.

Noren at least finished in style with a birdie on the last for a 15-under-par total of 273, finishing seven shots clear of England’s Richard Finch.

Finch had set the clubhouse target on eight under par after a superb 69, the lowest round of the day which made him the only man to break par, despite running up a triple-bogey six on the par-three 17th.

Sweden’s Niklas Lemke, playing on a sponsor’s invitation, finished third on five under, with Australia’s Scott Hend and Spain’s Pablo Martin a shot further back.

American Bubba Watson had been second overnight but closed with a 78 to drop back into a share of sixth place alongside compatriot Dustin Johnson, who finished with a 74.
