19/1 - Abu Dhabi
The first tournament of 2020 was held in Abu Dhabi this weekend, just an hour south of Dubai. Björk was happy to compete again after the christmas break. After a rough first round, 73 (+1), Björk was able to turn his game around and by his 70 (-2), he made the cut by one stroke. The tournament continued in the same up-and-down way and Björk finished two over par and in 69th place. Now the team is moving on to the Omega Desert Classic in Dubai.
3/1 - 2020 - Happy New Year!
2020 has arrived and we are looking forward to a new golf year on the European Tour. Björk travel to Abu Dhabi for practice next week and the Abu Dhabi Championship starts 16th January. Then it's time for Omega Dubai Desert Classic, followed by Saudi International. New for this season is Erik Frost carrying the bag.
11/12 - Mauritius Open
Björk didn't get things to work this week in Mauritius and foremost wasn't able to score. Although most of the drives and the putting worked very well, three drives just outside the fairway proved very costly as they were lost in the Mauritian high grass. Nothing left to do but to reload, continue practicing and come back stronger next year. First up is Abu Dhabi 16th of January.
