9/10 - Short story
Finishing birdie-eagle during the first round of BMW PGA Championship in London wasn't enought to be anywhere close to the top. Björk had a tough first day and scored +5. Too many bogeys put him in this position, Positive and a fighter, as he always is, he turned it around and scored -1 during the second round, finishing birdie-birdie. Although it was not close to making the cut, it shows the right attitude and now it's only for Björk to go back home for some practice, before getting back on tour again, When this is, will be updated on soon.
5/10 - Top 20 Scottish Open
Scottish Open turned out to be an exciting tournament
with many ups and downs for most of the players in the starting field.
Rainy and windy days combined with calm clear skies on other days
got reflected in the results as well. Björk had a really great start
and most of the tournament he played very well. Unfortunately the results
on a few holes, together with some missed birdie opportunities, cut him off
from thw very top. He showed that he has the highest level within him
though and hopefully he can keep it during all four days another
time this season.
