Noren wins Scottish Open for 5th European title

INVERNESS, Scotland - Alex Noren held off his pursuers in the final round Sunday to win theScottish Open by one shot for his fifth victory on the European Tour.

All of Noren's victories have come after he started the final round in the lead and this was another impressive display of front-running from the Swede, who shot a 2-under 70 to finish on 14-under 274.

Tyrrell Hatton, Noren's playing partner, was the runner-up at Castle Stuart in northern Scotland after a 69, while Nicolas Colsaerts (66), Danny Lee (69) and Matteo Manassero (70) were a further shot back.

Hatton, Colsaerts, Manassero and Richie Ramsay took the final four qualification places for next week's Open at Royal Troon.

Noren began the day with a two-shot lead, which disappeared after a bogey at No. 8 that left him tied with Lee. The 33-year-old Noren birdied Nos. 12 and 15 to go two shots in front again, and a two-putt par at the par-5 18th was enough to win.
