5 Sleepers to Watch at the 2018 Open Championship

Alex Noren

Alex Noren is probably one of the most under appreciated players on the PGA/European Tour. Ranked 11th in the world, Noren is currently ranked second in the European Tour’s Race to Dubai behind Patrick Reed, who has European Tour status this season. Noren has a win and two other top-five finishes on the European Tour this season, and also has three top-five finishes on the PGA Tour. He currently ranks ninth on the PGA Tour in strokes-gained putting, which could serve him well this week.
