Published on

MALMO, Sweden (AP) -- Alexander Noren clinched his second Nordea Masters title on Sunday, shooting a 1-under 71 to finish four shots ahead of last week's Irish Open winner Soren Kjeldsen of Denmark.

The 32-year-old Swede easily protected his two-shot overnight lead, finishing with a 12-under total of 276. Kjeldsen also shot a final-round 71.

Max Kieffer of Germany, who was second going into the final round, had two straight double bogeys on the fourth and fifth hole and shot a 75, finishing in a tie for third.

Alexander Levy of France (71) and Swedish duo Jens Dantorp (74) and Sebastian Soderberg (74) also tied for third, six shots behind Noren.

It was Noren's fourth career European Tour victory. He also won the Nordea Masters in 2011.
