Thomas Bjorn, Bio.
Born: 18th February 1971
Home: Silkeborg, Denmark
Thomas Bjorn has gone on to put Danish golf on the map. The man from Silkeborg has had a career laden with trophies and success. From starring at the Ryder Cup to winning the BMW International Open, Bjorn has seen and done it all.
Back in 1997, he became the first ever Danish pro to play at the Ryder Cup, after a string of impressive results on the European Tour. He played a big role in Europe's win that year too, capping a memorable season. Bjorn then went on one of golf's most impressive streaks yet. Every year from 1998 until 2002, he won at least one major tournament.
Bjorn is no stranger to recovering from adversity either. In fact, it makes him one of the most difficult opponents on the fairway. Take his win at the 2010 Estoril Open de Portugal. Without a title since 2006, it was an uphill task for Bjorn to get back to winning ways. Undaunted, the resilient Dane survived the pressure from Richard Green to take the victory. Bjorn is also a keen football fan, and is an ardent supporter of Liverpool FC.
