He is currently practicing at Ghala Golf Club in the capital Muscat. The weather is hot and dry. The tournament in Oman, wil be followed up by another in Qatar the week after.
2/2 - Improvements in Saudi Arabia
Björk had a very good start, 68 (-3) in Saudiarabia and played well most of the time. Still, the game was a little too much up and down for him to place himself in the very top. After 68, 69, 70, 71 (-2) Björk finished shared 27th (best Swede) and he feels that things have improved. He hopes the results will soon follow. After three weeks on the road, there will be a break until 27th February and Oman Open.
