Thomas Bjorn looks to turn back the clocks this week at Gleneagles as he makes his first Ryder Cup appearance since 2002.
The Dane has been a part of two European Ryder Cup teams, but that was over a decade ago. It was back when his opponents like Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed weren't even in middle school yet. His career record in the Ryder Cup is 3-2-1. Given his disappointing performance earlier in the year at the EurAsia Cup where he went 1-2-0 against weaker competition, you have to think Bjorn will struggle to find many tee times this week.

Thomas Björn carded a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

The Dane circled six birdies but couldn't keep the ugly numbers off the scorecard, squaring a double bogey and three bogeys on his trot around Firestone CC. Only two of those birdies fell from outside 10 feet. He enters the finale tied for 10th at 4-under 206.
Aug 2 - 5:16 PM

Thomas Björn sits 3-under-par 69-68=137 halfway through the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Dane he outweighed three bogeys in each round at Firestone with nine birdies, five of which during today's walk. The set featured conversions from 22'9", 12'8" and 28 feet at Nos. 5, 11 and 18, respectively. He added a par save from 11'2" at the par-3 12th. Björn has enjoyed a steady 2014 abroad, but he also finished T8 at the Masters. At 43 years of age, he's hardly the kind of investment to whom gamers will flock, but the results are impossible to ignore.
Aug 1 - 2:42 PM

Thomas Björn is 3-under-par 70-71=141 through two rounds of The Open Championship, three strokes off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

It not a stretch to say that this tournament owes the Dane something what with his T2 at Royal St. George's in 2003. He has another four top 10s to boot, including a distant T2 at St. Andrews in 2000. This week at Royal Liverpool, he's found 17 (of 28) fairways and 27 greens in regulation. The tee-to-green consistency has yielded six birdies against three bogeys. He went bogey-free in the lid-lifter.
Jul 18 - 1:19 PM

Thomas Bjorn spun a bogey-free, 2-under-par 35-35=70 in his opening round of the BMW International Open in Köln, Germany.

Björn sat out the U.S. Open with reported injuries to his neck and shoulder, but given his recent form, it seemed like a light excuse not to travel to Pinehurst. At least he's back in action and playing well. He went 5-for-5 in scrambling at Golf Club Gut Lärchenhof and settled at T47, six strokes off the pace of the overnight co-leaders.
Jun 26 - 5:05 PM

Thomas Björn is listed in the preliminary field for the European Tour's BMW International on June 26-29.

The Dane was one of the notable withdrawals from this week's U.S. Open. He cited injuries to his neck and shoulder, but it's not unusual for a European to take a pass on a trip to the states in favor of rest. It would be surprising if he, indeed, doesn't return to competition in Germany in two weeks. After sharing third place at the BMW PGA Championship on May 25, he tied for 15th at the Nordea Masters the following week.

Thomas Bjorn has withdrawn from next week's U.S. Open.

GolfChannel.com reported that the Dane is suffering from neck and shoulder injuries. He's competed in only one of the last four U.S. Opens, missing the cut in 2012. If he was hurting the last two weeks, it didn't show in his play as he tied for third at the BMW PGA Championship and chased that with a T15 in Sweden.
Jun 4 - 5:18 PM

Thomas Bjorn will make his first start since the Masters this week at THE PLAYERS.

Each of the Dane's last four starts have occurred on U.S. soil dating back to the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, with a T8 at Augusta National easily serving as the highlight. At 28th in the Official World Golf Ranking, it could be that there is some strategy involved in his light schedule in order to maintain his lofty ranking. Of course he's a PGA TOUR non-member, so it could simply be that he hasn't been able to line up any additional sponsor exemptions. In six trips to TPC Sawgrass, he's thrice tied for 22nd as the best showing.

Thomas Bjorn stumbled to a 2-over-par 36-38=74 in the final round of the Masters to score his first top-10 finish in this event at even-par 288.

The Dane's previous best was a T18 way back in 2002. He traded two birdies for two bogeys over his first 16 holes, but ended his afternoon at Augusta National Golf Club with back-to-back bogeys. The good news is that he has earned an invite back in 2015 by virtue of a top-12 finish.
Apr 13 - 6:11 PM

Thomas Bjorn stumbled to a 1-over-par 34-39=73 in the third round of the Masters, dropping to 2-under 214 for the tournament.

Bjorn was solid as a rock early, circling two birdies and managing seven pars on a blemish-free outward nine. His return to Augusta National Golf Club's clubhouse wasn't quite as impressive. He failed to record a birdie or better, squaring three bogeys on a sloppy nine. The biggest sin was his bogeys on both of the par 5s on the back nine. He's still just three back with 18 to play, so don't count the Dane out just yet.
Apr 12 - 6:44 PM

Thomas Björn assumed outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead of the 78th Masters at 3-under-par 73-68=141.

The Dane enjoyed a fun trot, sorry, walk around Augusta National Golf Club today. He converted eight birdies against four bogeys. He buried four birdies on each nine, including three straight beginning at the devilish, par-4 14th hole. Björn hasn't finished better than T18 in 10 previous appearances, but he's played some spirited golf since last year's edition. His slate includes two wins, three seconds and another six top 10s.
Apr 11 - 1:34 PM

Thomas Björn is set for his 11th Masters appearance this week at Augusta National.

Björn's best finish at the Masters was a T18 in 2002 when he sandwiched rounds of 67-70 in-between rounds of 74 and 77. The Dane is a solid bet to make the cut this week, but a top 25 may be asking a little too much.

Apr 8 - 10:39 AM

Thomas Björn is 5-under-par 69-66=135 through two rounds of The Honda Classic, six strokes off the pace of 36-hole clubhouse leader and fellow European, Rory McIlroy.

He went 7-for-7 en route to a bogey-free opener but wrangled only one birdie. Today's loop feature his first bogey -- a 5 at the sixth hole, his 15th of the round -- but five birdies, including runs from 14'1" at 10 and 15'9" at 18. The Dane has enjoyed success on his home circuit for years, but he hasn't logged a top-35 finish in a stroke-play event on the PGA TOUR since a T24 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in 2012.
Feb 28 - 4:50 PM

Thomas Björn went wire-to-wire in ousting Francesco Molinari 2 and 1 in the Player Bracket in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

The Dane opened with a par at the par-4 first, but it was good enough to take the hole. He didn't look back, retaining the lead throughout. He and the Italian traded birdie-wins three times before Björn put it away with a par at the par-4 17th. It's his first day-one win since 2011 and just the second in his last six appearances. Molinari is now 1-4 in the opening round. Björn will test his mettle against Jordan Spieth in the second round.
Feb 19 - 2:48 PM

Thomas Björn has logged three top-15 finishes in four starts this year ahead of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

While Björn's form should not be a question, his record at Dove Mountain is worth a pause. His last two trips to this event resulted in first-round exits. He is the sixth seed in the Gary Player bracket and squares off against Francesco Molinari.
