Alexander Björk (born 7 June 1990) who is a Swedish professional golfer and since april 2018, also a European Tour winner. His first victory came in Volvo China Open
where he finished with a 65 and a total score of -18. Björk has also in 2018 secured two second places, USB Hong Kong Open and Sky Sports British Masters, and one third place, Trophee Hassan II.
Björk turned professional in 2009 and played on the Nordic Golf League before moving on to the Challenge Tour. His breakthrough season on the Challenge Tour in 2016 was anchored by a maiden victory at Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge, in July 2016, eventually finishing seventh in the overall Rankings.
He enjoyed a superb rookie season on the European Tour in 2017, almost claiming a maiden victory in a Rolex Series event at the HNA Open de France. In his rookie season on the European Tour he had 11 top-twenty finishes and finished 43rd on the Race to Dubai.
Alexander was an outstanding tennis player in his youth, and was one of Sweden’s top ten players as a junior before choosing to focus on golf. When Alexander is not on the golfcourse he likes to be out fishing and enjoying his time with his family and friends.

18/10 Strong week in Valderrama
Björk placed himself top 5 in Andalucia Masters last week
during tough playing conditions. The course was in great shape and the greens had
a stimp rating of 13-14. Björk thought is was fun to play the challenging course and
also likes when the greens are very fast. He kept improving during the tournament,
one stroke each round. In the end he was -2, only one stroke from being runner up.
Disappointed, as one stroke would have done alot for the season rankings, Björk is still
fighting for a ticket to the Dubai finals, playing both in Mallorca and Portugal.
Björk has arrived to Spain and today played the
first round of Andalucia Masters.The tough conditions with lots
of wind were visible on the results and Björk is currently in 22nd spot
with +1, 72. Björk enjoyed playing and got accompanied by friends and family from
home which he always appreciates very much.
4/10 45th in Scotland
Björk enjoyed playing the well-reputed Scottish courses
this weekend and improved from first round's 74 to three rounds under par (69, 70, 71 = total -4).
The best score was on Kingsbarns on the second day. He turned around from being out of the
cut, to be in the game again, something Björk is quite good at doing. Now it's back to
Sweden for a week and then he will be playing the two Spanish tournaments: first at Valderrama
and then on Mallorca. The picture below is from the same tournament, but in 2018.
29/9 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship
Björk is currently in Scotland, ready to play tomorrow at 11.12.
The tournament is quite interesting, being held on both Old Course St. Andrews, Carnoustie
and Kingsbarns. The players are also mixed with amateurs participating in a parallel team competition
with the pros. The courses are challenging, specially the bunkers with its steep edges.
Björk starts playing Carnoustie, then Kingsbarn and eventually St. Andrews.
Let's hope for some good golf this weekend!
