BMW International Open
24 - 27 June
Dubai Duty Free Irish Open
01 - 04 July
Scandinavian Mixed hosted by Henrik and Annika
10 - 13 June
14/6 Fantastic finish at Vallda
Björk only improved during the Scandinavian mixed hosted by
Henrik and Annika. He started off with a 72 (par) and had to fight to
make the cut. Being on the right side by one stroke, he had nothing to loose
going into the weekend. Here, he started to move forward in the starting field.
During the last round, he moved from 41th to 7th place. Finishing with a 66 (-6)
got him to the total of -11, the best Swede of the tournament.
7/6 Ups and downs in Hamburg
Björk continued to show some good game,
playing at Green Eagle, in Hamburg this weekend. The tournament
was shorter than normally, only three days, from saturday to monday.
Björk started off with an impressive 69 (-3) on the difficult, long course, being
the runner-up after day one. Unfortunately he wasn't able to follow up
on that good game and had difficulties to put it all together.
He finished 74,74 for +1 and 29th spot. Next up is Scandinavian mixed
at home on Vallda G&CC, before going back to Germany and Munich.
31/5 Top 10
Björk had a really good week in Denmark,
feeling more confident than in a long time. He proved his great
ability to hit iron-strokes, to be gentle on the greens, to scramble.
Most parts of his game came together. This was also shown in the results,
Björk being runner-up ahead of the last round. Although he faced
more difficulties, during the last day, he was able to keep a top-10 spot.
Now he is looking forward to another tournament and hopes to keep playing in this "spirit".
He feels things are starting to come back together again, after some time of
searching to find his game.
