Alex Noren Conquers Castle Stuart, Wins Scottish Open
Callaway staffer Alex Noren handled the tough conditions at Castle Stuart, the star-studded field, and the final round pressure to close out the biggest victory of his career at the Scottish Open. With an XR 16 Sub Zero Driver, a Chrome Soft Golf Ball, and all Callaway in the bag, Noren took control of the event on Sunday and never looked back.
Here is the equipment he used to capture his 5th career win:

Noren switched into an XR 16 Sub Zero earlier this year and he was particularly fond of the low spin he saw off of his ball flight. The Sub Zero has done very well on Tour in 2016 and is currently being played by Branden Grace (who used it to win at The Heritage in April), Phil Mickelson, Harris English, and Nicolas Colsaerts (who finished in contention at the Scottish Open), among others.
He moved into a Chrome Soft Golf Ball earlier this year, and he liked how he could flight the ball and control it into the green. Noren is among a long list of players including Lydia Ko (#1 on the LPGA Tour), Danny Willett (#1 on European Tour’s Race to Dubai), Wes Bryan (#1 on Web.com Tour), Phil Mickelson, Patrick Reed, Jim Furyk, Marc Leishman, Ollie Schniederjans, and many others who are currently playing a Chrome Soft.
