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.

14/6 Good play not enough in Sweden...
Last week Björk was "at home", playing at Halmstad GK the northern course. He was supported by friends and family which he always enjoys very much. Unfortunately he wasn't able to make the cut and play all four rounds. Even though he "played the best strokes for years" and hit 17/18 greens, this was not enough. The putting was just the opposite and Björk finished on par after two rounds, missing the cut by two strokes. Although this tournament didn't go as he would have hoped for, more tournaments are yet to come and hopefully the good strokes will come along. Next up is Irish Open (30/6), followed by Scottish Open 7/7) and then The Open on St Andrews (14/7). Congratulations to the Scandinavian Mixed winner Linn Grant for an outstanding performance!
5/6 Strong finish in Germany!
The players faced a long difficult course this week
at Green Eagle outside of Hamburg. Only fifteen players got under par
and the cut was +4. After a tough start Björk could be satisfied to
precisely make the cut on the stroke: 75, 73. However, he didn't stop
there, instead kept on improving. Today he had his first round under par,
-3, which was enough to advance him to 25th spot. Although you always want
to be up there in the top, it's a good feeling to finish a tournament well.
And hopefully improvements will continue as next week it's time for Sweden
and Scandinavian Mixed. Björk is hoping to see you out there on Halmstad GK (thursday to sunday).
Many Swedes will compete, both players from DP World Tour and Ladies European Tour.
We hope for a fun tournament at home.
30/5 Top ten in Dutch Open!
Björk had a good week in Cromvoirt, the Netherlands last week.
He played solid and smart, kept it together. He also reminded himself
to enjoy it, to go out and have fun. This recipe of trying to be a bit more
relaxed on course, proved to be successful and Björk scored a total of -8,
finishing 7th spot. He rose through the DP World rankings from 97-77.
Hopefully he can keep on moving in the right direction. For you who watched on tv,
we can all agree on that it was quite an exciting finish to the tournament, both
during the last nine holes and the playoff.
