Heading into his second season on the European Tour, Alexander Björk has established himself as one of the continent's major talents after a whirlwind debut season on the main tour. Enjoying three top-ten finishes in his maiden year helped the Swedish golfing star to a 43rd placed finish on the Race To Dubai meaning he comfortably retained his card for the 2018 season. This included a T3 finish at the HNA Open de France, one of the season's Rolex Series events, which subsequently earned Alexander his Major debut with a spot at the 146th Open Championship.

Strong performances continued to follow throughout the year as Alexander ended his maiden year with eleven top-twenty finishes to his name, an illustration of his consistency throughout the season. Further to this, the 2018 season has started in near perfect style for the 27-year-old as his elusive maiden European Tour title just evaded him when he finished in T2 at the UBS Hong Kong Open - the first event of the year. Alexander has announced himself as one of the major players across Europe and looks set for further success in 2018.

Judging by the way Alexander Björk played in his rookie season on the European Tour in 2017, you would've thought the Swede has been competing at the top level for years. Such was the composure and consistency the 27-year-old showed it became very easy to forget that he graduated from the Challenge Tour as recently as 2016. Björk, who finished tied third in overall scoring on the European Tour in 2017 at 112 under par, only missed six cuts all-season, while posting ten top 20 finishes in the process to qualify for the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, where another top 20 finish duly followed.
