Tough week at work
Some weeks are better than others and during the last few days, margins haven't really been to the benefits of Björk. 71-69 at Gargagolf in Italy meant a missed cut by two strokes and 68-71 at the US Open Qualification at Walton Heath Golf Club on monday 4/6, was one shot too much for qualifing.
