Although there are no golf tournaments at the moment, it's still possible to stay active. This weekend Björk was part of the initiation of a new football golf course at Glasriks GC in the hometown of Växjö. Together with football professionals, the Ravelli twins, Björk and his coach Graham Crisp were invited to play the new 18 holes. Besides playing football and going fishing, Björk is practicing a lot and doing his gym sessions diligently.

8/3 - Top 10 in Qatar Masters
Björk did a great tournament this week in Qatar and finished 6th. He played solid, 38 bogey free holes and he showed great confidence on the greens. He finished total -11 (70,63,69,71). Björk was a bit disappointed after the last round as he had great chances to be in the very top and din't get the nice approaches and sensitivity in the putting that he previosuly had during round two and three. However, what a sign of comeback and power that he now has to build upon going forward in 2020! Big congratulations on Swede Niklas Lemke and his 65, finishing in the top 3.
7/3 - Great game
For those of you watching Viasat Golf this morning, it was really fun to see Björk play as good as he did. During the round we were able to see solid play from the tee, many great approaches and strong sensitivity in the putting. It felt as going back to the 2018 season, when Björk had that great confidence and just kept moving on. Today we were able to see many smiles and a relaxed but focused attitude. He is currently -11 (-2 today), three strokes after leading Jorge Campillo and two strokes from runner-up position. We hope he can continue on this track tomorrow.
