3/8 - Great game and 3rd place!
Björk had a fantastic time in England this week and really proved what golf game he has in store. The Swede scored 14 under par (68, 67, 70, 69) with 20 birdies and 6 bogeys, which shows both stability and strength. He moved from 19th place after the first round to be within top ten during all the three last rounds. It's exciting to see him moving in the right direction after the long break. Now it's time for one week off before going at it again.
29/7 - Hero Open
This weeks European Tour takes place in Birmingham, in the western part of England. Björk has arrived directly from London and the tournament starts tomorrow with tee time 12.55 (13.55 Swedish time). Tee times

After four months wait, Björk is finally playing on the European Tour again. He started off well with a 68 (-3), followed by a 72 (+1) to make the cut. He feels that his game is there after the long break. He also has had the time to work on improving his swing and fitness during these months. Hopefully it will pay off moving forward.
