Alexander Björk (born 7 June 1990) who is a Swedish professional golfer and since april 2018, also a European Tour winner. His first victory came in Volvo China Open
where he finished with a 65 and a total score of -18. Björk has also in 2018 secured two second places, USB Hong Kong Open and Sky Sports British Masters, and one third place, Trophee Hassan II.
Björk turned professional in 2009 and played on the Nordic Golf League before moving on to the Challenge Tour. His breakthrough season on the Challenge Tour in 2016 was anchored by a maiden victory at Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge, in July 2016, eventually finishing seventh in the overall Rankings.
He enjoyed a superb rookie season on the European Tour in 2017, almost claiming a maiden victory in a Rolex Series event at the HNA Open de France. In his rookie season on the European Tour he had 11 top-twenty finishes and finished 43rd on the Race to Dubai.
Alexander was an outstanding tennis player in his youth, and was one of Sweden’s top ten players as a junior before choosing to focus on golf. When Alexander is not on the golfcourse he likes to be out fishing and enjoying his time with his family and friends.
DP World Tour Championship, Dubai
18 - 21 Nov
21/11 Absolutely fabolous day in Dubai!
We are happy, excited and very very proud of the way Björk
played in the tour final. He really showed what a great golfer he is and that
he is able to handle both pressure and nerves. He avoided trouble, getting only five
bogeys during the entire week on the both long and tricky Earth course.
He also scored many birdies, ending -14. Most impressively was the 2,5 meter put on the
eighteenth green today to finish as the runner-up. He showed that he belongs up
in the top and that he has an incredible high level within him.
As this ends the season of 2021, we couldn't be more excited to see what the 2022 season awaits!

16/11 Strong nerves right into the final...
Björk really impressed in Dubai last week, doing exactly what needed
to be done to qualify himself to the DP World Tour Final this week. He kept his nerves under control,
being right on the line until the very end and finished strong with -5 (67) during the last round
with a birdie on the last hole. He is now very excited to compete in his third race to Dubai final
with the other top 50 players. We are hoping for a fun week to finish the 2020/2021 season. Björk finished
17th in the AVIV Dubai Championship although the focus was mostly on qualifying into the final.
7/11 30th in Portugal Masters
Björk had a solid week in Vilamoura Portugal, playing good most of the time,
but did not score enough birdies to be in the very top. Björk finished -6 (71, 66, 71, 70)
and came in 30th spot. He had fun being supported on site by both family and golf friends from Sweden.
To be able to play in the Dubai final in two weeks, Björk must improve his rankings from 54 to top 50 next week in the AVIV Dubai Championship. The European Tour season 2022 starts in Joburg, South Africa already 25th of november 2021. Full schedule and when Björk will enter the 2022 season, will be updated here.
