SUN CITY, South Africa -- Alex Noren won the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa with the round of his life on Sunday, a sublime 63 that took him from six shots off the lead overnight to a 6-shot victory and his fourth title of a remarkable season on the European Tour.Noren was 9 under through the first 11 holes at Sun City on the way to matching the best final round by a winner on this years tour.I found something ... This was the round of my life, the Swede said.The triumph will move Noren up to third on the tours Race to Dubai, giving him a chance to be crowned Europes No. 1 golfer at the season-ending World Tour Championship in Dubai next weekend. Noren is also set to move into the top 10 in the world rankings when they are updated, some rise for a player whose aim at the beginning of the season was to crack the top 50.The winners check of $1.16 million at Sun City took the 34-year-old Norens 2016 earnings above $3.3 million. Two years ago, Noren earned less than $6,000 for the season.While Noren streaked ahead to finish 14 under overall, Jeunghun Wang, who was three shots clear overnight, ended second on 8 under after four bogeys in his last six holes saw him slip to a 3-over 75 on the last day.Race to Dubai leader and British Open champion Henrik Stenson was eighth on 6 under, and maintains his advantage on the season standings ahead of the World Tour Championship. U.S. Masters champion Danny Willett finished in a tie for 11th at Sun City and retains second place in the Race to Dubai.Norens victory drops Rory McIlroy down to fourth after the Northern Irishman skipped the first two events of the tours final series, last weekends Turkish Airlines Open and the Nedbank Challenge.McIlroy is expected to return to action in Dubai, when the race has opened up and Noren has a chance at an incredible finish to an already incredible season. Hes the first four-time winner on the 2016 European Tour, the first Swede to ever win four times in a season on the tour, and the first player to win four events in a season since McIlroy in 2014.On Sunday at Sun City, and after he was left frustrated with a third-round 75, Noren opened with three straight birdies and birdied six of his first nine holes. He made eagle on No. 10, and two more birdies coming home, leaving him the luxury of two pars to finish and seal the title on his Nedbank debut.He also heads to Dubai with high praise from Nedbank Challenge tournament host and South Africas nine-time major champion Gary Player.I got some good words from Gary Player, Noren said. He thought my chipping looked good and that is always nice to hear. Cheap Ravens Jerseys For Sale .

That gave fans outside Joe Louis Arena another chance to ask for autographs from the 19-year-old whose stardom in the NHL has arrived earlier than most expected. DETROIT -- Matt Boyd reached out his glove and snagged Joe Mauers liner to the mound.Looking pleased with himself, the Detroit left-hander flipped the ball from his glove to his bare hand and then threw the ball into left field in a failed attempt to start the toss around the infield.I think I made myself look really athletic, and then about five seconds later made myself look like a dunce out there, Boyd said.Boyd could joke about that blooper because it basically was his only misstep of the night. He allowed three hits in six outstanding innings, and the Tigers beat Minnesota 1-0 on Monday to hand the last-place Twins another loss just hours after they announced the firing of general manager Terry Ryan.Justin Upton homered in the second to back Boyd (1-2), who struck out seven with one walk and provided a welcome boost to a rotation that has shown little depth of late.Three relievers finished for the Tigers, with Francisco Rodriguez pitching a hitless ninth for his 26th save in 28 chances.Minnesota announced Ryans firing before the game, then lost in relatively punchless fashion. Ricky Nolasco (4-8) allowed one run and three hits in six innings.Weve been struggling offensively coming out of the break, and that didnt change, Twins manager Paul Molitor said. We had a lot of trouble with Boyds offspeed pitches.Uptons homer was his 200th.Its definitely cool to reach that milestone, Upton said. I hope thats not the last milestone I reach.Although the Tigers left the bases loaded in the third, Boyd and the bullpen made their one run stand up. Detroit is without injured right-hander Jordan Zimmermann, and the rotation has looked thin behind Justin Verlander and rookie Michael Fulmer.Boyd, however, has been impressive in his last two starts. He allowed one run in five innings against Toronto in his final outing before the All-Star break.Monday was the longest scoreless start of the 25-year-old left-handerss career.dddddddddddd. The Tigers acquired him in last years trade that sent David Price to Toronto.Boyds biggest jam was in the fourth, when he got Eddie Rosario on a grounder for the third out with two on. The Twins didnt have another baserunner until Miguel Sanos one-out walk in the ninth.HONOREDThe Tigers gave tickets to some Dallas police officers who were in town for the funeral of Michael Krol, a Michigan native who was among the five officers killed earlier this month by a gunman in Dallas. The officers were shown in the crowd on the big screen at the start of the fifth inning, and fans gave them a standing ovation. There was a brief pause before the game restarted, and a couple umpires joined in the clapping.I got goosebumps. That was probably one of the coolest things Ive seen, Tigers catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said. The whole city kind of stood up and rallied and let those guys know that we do support them. Those guys lay their lives on the line.NO KsNolasco did not strike out a batter, the first time thats happened to him since he lasted only two innings in a start July 6, 2014, against the New York Yankees.TRAINERS ROOMTigers: LHP Daniel Norris (right oblique strain) allowed a run and five hits in four innings in a rehab start for Triple-A Toledo. Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said hes not sure if Norris will need another rehab start or not. ... RHP Warwick Saupold (right groin strain) was reinstated from the DL and optioned to Toledo.UP NEXTTwins: LHP Tommy Milone (2-2) takes the mound Tuesday night against Detroit. He allowed two runs in five innings in a win over Texas on July 10.Tigers: RHP Anibal Sanchez (5-10) tries again to turn his miserable season around.
