7/2 2021 - Difficult in Saudi Arabia
Björk had a rough time this week at the Saudi International. Five birdies and one eagle during the first two rounds, weren't enough to make up for the bogeys and also one triple. He finished +3 (72, 71) and missed the cut by three strokes. Nothing to do, but to move on and prepare for another tournament. Next one will be 11th March in Qatar.
31/1 2021 - Strong finish in Dubai
Björk had a solid week at Omega Dubai Desert Classic, the second tournament of the year. He scored 71, 71, 73, 70, a total of three under par. As the best round was the last one, he advanced in the tough starting field (this also being a Rolex Tournament), to 35th spot. Björk says that he feels his game is mostly there, but the putting could improve. With some work inbetween tournaments, we hope for even more birdies next week in Saudi Arabia.
24/1 2021 - Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship
First tournament of the season is finishing up at the moment in Abu Dhabi. It's a rolex tournament, one out of four during the season. These tournaments attract the best players and make it competitive events. Björk has had a solid start of the year, securing the cut and advancing to 46th spot this last day (scoring 70, 72, 74, 70 = -2). He may not be satisfied, still wanting to improve and rise further, but he's now back in the game and excited for next week at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.
