38-Year-Old Golfer
2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Noren was one of the biggest disappointments of the 2018-19 season. In his first year as a member on the PGA Tour in the 2017-18 season, the Swede finished 43rd in the final FedExCup stnadings with three top-three finishes and 10 top-25s. Last year he went 18 starts on the PGA Tour without a single top-10 and just five top-25s. Noren is a 10-time European Tour winner, so of all those who were relegated to conditional status, he has the biggest upside considering his status in the OWGR and ability to get into the more prestigeous events.

Top-15 at Riviera
February 23, 2021
Noren closed with an even-par 71 on Sunday at the Genesis Invitational to finish five-under and tied for 12th.
Noren combated 12 total bogeys with 4.25 tweeters per round at Riviera Country Club while ranking 16th in SG: Tee-to-Green and sixth in putts per GIR. The Swede will rejoin the top-100 in the Official World Golf Ranking as a result, though he won't be in the field for this week's WGC-Workday Championship at The Concession.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Noren came to the PGA Tour last season via the European Tour and he arrived with a lot of hype. Though he failed to win on the PGA Tour last season, he lived up to that hype for the most part. Noren made the cut in 14 of 18 starts, posted 10 top-25s and three top-3 finishes. Noren is 36 years old, so he's not among the young crop that is taking over the PGA Tour, but he's still got plenty of years left to make a mark and if he continues to play like he did last season, it won't be long before he picks-up his first PGA Tour win. He comes with a hefty price tag this season, but Noren has the ability to make a significant improvement upon his number from last season. He'll have to win somewhere to do so, but he's certainly capable of doing that.
Noren missed only three cuts worldwide last season, but they came at the deep-field Masters, U.S. Open and Scottish Open. On the other hand, he captured the BMW PGA Championship, carded T6s at the Open Championship and the European Masters and a T10 at the Players Championship. Ranked 14th in the world, the Swede is fifth in the Race to Dubai. His 424 non-member FedEx Cup Points equaled Luke Donald, who was 107th on the points list. It seems reasonable for Noren to surpass last season's earnings significantly.
