Thomas Björn will be hoping to break new ground this week when he heads to Hua Hin to contest the inaugural True Thailand Classic.
The Dane has won 15 times on the European Tour during a long and distinguished career and his worldwide victories include twin triumphs in the Dunlop Phoenix tournament in Japan. But Björn has yet to post a win in an Asian Tour event, something he hopes to remedy at this week's co-sanctioned tournament played at Black Mountain. The veteran has teed it up just once so far in 2015 and only managed 36 holes after missing the cut in the Dubai Desert Classic after a pair of 72s. Feb 10 - 10:53 AM

Thomas Björn has a win and six other top 15s at the Emirates and will be hoping to add to that record in this week's Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

Björn triggered the 'Great Dane' headlines in 2001 when holding off Tiger Woods and Padraig Harrington to win by two shots. That was his sixth European Tour win; he now has 15. The veteran, who played on Europe's winning Ryder Cup team at Gleneagles last October, shows no sign of slowing up in this event and was T13 last year, ninth in 2012 after leading at halfway and T15 in 2010. This is his first start of 2015 after an extended break following his T24 in the Nedbank Golf Challenge where he started with an 80.

Thomas Björn has made the trek to Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai, China, for the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

Björn has played in each of the last three editions, two of which were held at the current venue. His best finish in the tournament was a T21 at Mission Hills in 2012, while his highlight at Sheshan was a T39 last year. The Great Dane tied for 24th in last week's BMW Masters, so perhaps he found something that will spur him on to a solid finish in this week's tournament.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 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.

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.

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.
Sat, Apr 12, 2014 06:44:00 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.

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.
