WATCH: Alex Noren hits flagstick twice at Hero Challenge

Alex Noren is one of the top 15 golfers in the world. He showed that at the Hero Challenge, hitting the flagstick on two consecutive shots.

In case you don’t know what the Hero Challenge is, it’s a closest to the pin contest between some of the European Tour’s top players. It’s just another cool, innovative event that that Euro Tour has created to help make golf that much cooler.

On two of his 10 balls, Noren hit the flag back-to-back times. It’s just a prime example of how deadeye accurate these guys are, especially a player of Noren’s caliber.

Although he’s not a greens in regulation machine (105th on the European Tour this season), he can still be deadly with the irons. Noren would end up losing to young China star, Li Haotong in an instant classic of a duel.

Haotong was also obviously insanely accurate with the irons to grab the W. As for Noren, the back-to-back pin seekers make us all shake our head. Time for us to step up our pin seeking missile game!
