Player Notes

Has had four consistent seasons on The European Tour since making his breakthrough in May 2002 when he won the PGA Championship at Wentworth Club. Won in record breaking style, setting a new low aggregate for the West Course - a 19 under par total of 269 which beat the previous best of 270 held by Bernhard Langer and Colin Montgomerie - but which was subsequently matched by Scott Drummond in 2004. Finished 33rd on the 2006 Order of Merit, thanks largely to a fine tie for fourth place behind Tiger Woods at the Dubai Desert Classic, and then a tie for second place behind Francesco Molinari at the Telecom Italia Open. Went to University of Houston and enjoyed two victories on the collegiate scene in America. No relation to his namesake S?ren ? but they often seem inseparable ? to the extent that both holed in one in successive weeks on The European Tour in 1999 and both claimed their maiden European Tour victories within a month of one another. That closeness even stretched to their finishing positions on the 2005 and 2006 Orders of Merit ? Anders in 35th and S?ren 36th in 2005, followed by their respective 33rd and 34th place finishes in 2006..
