Thomas Bjorn

Bjorn and his older brother, Soren, who played on the Baylor University golf team, were introduced to the game early in life by their mother, a 5-handicap player. Bjorn turned professional in 1993 and spent two years in the U.S. playing mini-tour events before gaining his European Tour Challenge Tour card. He won four times in 1995, was named Challenge Tour Player of the Year, and moved to the European Tour. He was European Rookie of the Year in 1996 after posting a victory at Loch Lomond, making him the first Dane to win on the European Tour. Winner of the Danish Amateur in 1990 and 1991. Member of 1997, 2002, and 2014 Ryder Cup Teams. In the 2004, 2010, and 2012 Ryder Cups, he was vice-captain to winning captains Bernhard Langer, Colin Montgomerie, and Jose Maria Olazabal. He captained Continental Europe in the Vivendi Trophy with Seve Ballesteros in 2009. Has served as chairman of the European Tour's Tournament Committee since 2007. Translated, his surname means "Bear" in Danish.
2011 Notes: Had a resurgence with three European Tour victories, winning the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters, the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles, and the Omega European Masters. The Gleneagles' triumph was all the more impressive given that he emerged victorious from a five-man, five-hole playoff. He also won the following week in Crans-sur-Sierre.
2012 Notes: Made 22 starts on the European Tour with seven top-10 finishes.
2013 Notes: Earned his first European Tour victory in two seasons when he captured the Omega European Masters. The Switzerland tournament was also his last victory in 2011, giving him 14 European Tour titles in his 20 professional wins. Shot a final-round 65 at Crans-sur-Sierre GC in Crans, Montana, to force a playoff with Craig Lee. He secured the title on the first extra hole, No. 18, by making a birdie. He finished second at the ISPS Handa World Cup in Melbourne, Australia, two shots behind Jason Day. In the team competition with Thorbjorn Olesen, he finished third, 12 shots behind Australia's winning total.
2014 Notes: Captured the biggest paycheck of his career (euro795,338 or $ 1,081,910 USD) in winning a 15th European Tour title at the Nedbank Golf Challenge to begin The 2014 Race to Dubai. Finished T-3rd in the BMW PGA Championship, his first top-five since the Nedbank. Added five more top-10 finishes for a total of seven on the European Tour. Finished 12th on the European Tour's final Race to Dubai standings. At the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in Scotland, he went 0-2-1 in his three matches en route to Europe's five-point victory over the U.S.
2015 Notes: He played in 21 European Tour events, making 13 cuts. An ongoing back injury had hampered him, but despite the back, he finished 4th at the CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters on the Asian Tour.
