Player Notes

Won the BMW PGA Championship for a second time, five years after his maiden victory, when he held off the challenge of Justin Rose at Wentworth Club in 2007 in a playoff. Both his victories have therefore been in the European Tour's flagship event. . .Was a member of the PGA Tour in 2007 after making it through Q School. . .Went to University of Houston and enjoyed two victories on the collegiate scene in America. No relation to his namesake Soren 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 in 2002 and second victories in 2007. That closeness even stretched to their finishing positions on the 2005 and 2006 Orders of Merit. Anders in 35 and Soren 36 in 2005, followed by their respective 33 and 34 place finishes in 2006. They weren't as close in 2007 with Soren finishing ten places higher, but they did end the season together sharing 25th place in the Volvo Masters.
