Sweden’s Alexander Björk turned professional in 2009 and since then, he has risen through the World Golf Rankings.
Björk’s first European Tour victory came at the 2018 Volvo China Open, where he shot a final round 65 for a total of -18.
The Swede’s victory came after starting his second year on the European Tour in near perfect style, with a tied 2nd place finish at the UBS Hong Kong Open, tied 3rd at the Tropheé Hassan II and tied 6th at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.
The remainder of his 2018 season provided other impressive results, such as finishing solo 2nd at the Sky Sports British Masters, coming up just two shots short of the eventual winner, Eddie Pepperell and tied 12th at the DP World Tour Championship. He finished the year ranked 19th on the Race to Dubai rankings.
Alexander finished his 2019 season ranked 98th on the Race to Dubai rankings and his best finishes of the season came at the Trophee Hassan II (tied 9th), Volvo China Open (tied 19th) and Omega Dubai Desert Clasisc (tied 20th).
2017 was a whirlwind first season for Alexander on the European Tour. Having recorded three top-ten finishes, this helped him to a 43rd place finish on the Race to Dubai rankings, meaning that he comfortably retained his card for the 2018 season.
A tied third finish for Alexander at the 2017 HNA Open de France secured him a spot at the 146th Open Championship, where he made his major debut.
In 2016, Alexander picked up his first Challenge Tour victory at the Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge and also had nine top-ten finishes during this season. This led to him finishing 7th on the Road to Oman rankings and guaranteeing his European Tour for 2017.
As a teenager, Alexander was one of Sweden’s top ten ranked tennis players as a junior. He then chose to focus his efforts on golf.
