Thomas Bjørn hung up a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in his opening round at the 97th PGA Championship, good enough for a share of the early clubhouse lead.
And yet despite the strong start, the fiery Dane walked off Whistling Straits' 18th hole a frustrated figure after bogeying his final two holes. They were the only blemishes on a card which showed birdies at Nos. 3, 5, 8, 11 and 12. Bjørn hit 12 greens in regulation on his opening lap while only one of his five conversions was from outside 10 feet, a 14'8" putt at the long par-4 8th hole. The Ryder Cup star is no stranger to playing well in majors and has a T2 (2005) and a third (2000) to his name in this event. However, he hasn't posted a single top 10 on either European or PGA TOUR in 2015. Aug 13 - 1:26 PM

Thomas Bjørn will tee it up at Firestone Country Club’s South Course for the ninth time when he contests this week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

The Dane has collected four top 20s during that run which began with a T10 in 2000 and featured a T15 as its latest instalment 12 months ago. Bjørn slots in at 85th on the latest Race To Dubai standings but has disappointed in recent events with missed cuts at the Scottish Open and the Open Championship. He's currently outside the top 100 for driving accuracy and greens in regulation.

Thomas Bjørn has won two of his 15 European Tour titles at the BMW International Open and he returns to Germany this week for another crack.

Both those victories -- by three shots from Bernhard Langer in 2000 and by four from Langer again and England's John Bickerton in 2002 -- came at this week's venue, Munchen Nord-Eichenried. If gamers are put off by dated form like that, it's worth noting that Bjørn was also runner-up at this course on his last appearance there two years ago. That was sandwiched between T8s in 2012 and 2014 when Gut Larchenhof staged the tournament so the Dane clearly enjoys his visits to Germany. Bjørn didn't play in the U.S. Open so his latest result is a T21 at the Nordea Masters.
Jun 23 - 4:58 AM

Thomas Bjørn overcame four bogeys on the front nine to shoot a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in round two of the BMW PGA Championship.

The Dane dropped shots at 1, 5, 8 and 9 but repaired the damage with birdies at 2, 4, 7 and 12 and finally got under par for the day with another par breaker at the 179-yard par-3 14th. At 4-under 140 he's currently T8 and six behind leader Francesco Molinari. Bjørn held a five-shot lead going into the final round of this event last year but couldn't get the job done after closing with a 75. The former Wentworth resident is in position to challenge again but will need to tidy up around the greens (just 2-for-8 in scrambling so far) over the weekend.

Denmark's Thomas Bjørn will line up in this week's inaugural AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open at Heritage GC.

This is the first official European Tour event to be tri-sanctioned with the Asian and Sunshine Tours and Bjørn would be an appropriate winner having had success on all three. The 15-time European Tour champion's last victory came in neighbouring South Africa in December 2013 when he landed the Nedbank Golf Challenge. The Ryder Cup star has had a tricky start to this season but rode a hot short game to finish fourth at the Asian Tour's Indonesia Masters two weeks ago.
May 5 - 3:22 AM

Thomas Bjørn looped Augusta National Golf Club in even-par 36-36=72 in his opening round round of the Masters.

The Dane is returning to competition this week. He last pegged it at the WGC-Cadillac Championship where he called it quits during his opening round due to personal issues. Today in Georgia, he hit 12 greens in regulation and traded three birdies with three bogeys. While he's eight strokes off the overnight lead, Bjørn shot over par in his last five trips to the Masters. He hadn't gone this low since opening the 2005 edition with 71.
Apr 9 - 6:27 PM

Thomas Bjørn is not listed in the published field of next week's Shell Houston Open.

It was a long shot that he'd be granted a sponsor or foreign exemption to compete, but the possibility existed. So, expect to see him back inside the ropes at the Masters on April 9. Bjørn last pegged it at Trump National Doral where he walked off after only eight holes, reportedly due to personal issues. The Dane tied for eighth at last year's Masters, so he may be worth a peek in majors pool and DFS if not other standard formats.
Mar 27 - 7:47 PM

Thomas Bjørn has been removed from the published field of this week's Trophee Hassan II.

We last checked the field on March 13 when it was preliminary. He hasn't played since withdrawing from the WGC-Cadillac after eight holes in the first round. The Dane is already exempt into the Masters, but it remains to be seen if he'll crack the field at next week's Shell Houston Open.
Mar 24 - 3:15 AM

Thomas Björn is included in the preliminary field of the European Tour's Trophee Hassan II on March 26-29.

The Dane took some flak on social media for walking off Trump National Doral after completing only eight holes last week. Because it was a World Golf Championships event, he pocketed unofficial last-place money ($42,000.00). According to Mark Cannizzaro on Twitter, Björn cited personal issues as his reason to call it quits. It was just the latest lesson why you can't hold the court of public opinion to a higher standard. If he honors this early commitment, it'll mark the first time that Björn has competed in the tournament since placing T15 in 2011.
Mar 13 - 7:28 PM

Thomas Björn withdrew during his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, citing personal issues, according to Mark Cannizzaro on Twitter.

Björn splashed his tee ball at the par-3 ninth before calling it quits. He was birdie-free 3-over with three bogeys through eight holes. This is his third mid-tournament WD in 112 career PGA TOUR starts. The first two occurred during the 2005 season.
Mar 5 - 2:15 PM

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.
Jan 27 - 3:11 PM

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.
