Won the 2018 Volvo China Open with a bogey-free last round of 65 to move into the world’s top 100 for the first time and played at Carnoustie three months later as one of the leading non-exempt players on the European Tour money list. 

Alexander Bjork 

Will be at Royal Portrush after finishing the season among the circuit’s top 30, thanks also to a runner-up finish behind Eddie Pepperell at the Sky Sports British Masters in October. 

Made his Championship debut in his rookie season on Tour in 2017, finishing joint third at the HNA French Open to claim one of the places on offer as part of The Open Qualifying Series.

First hit the headlines in 2012 when he listed himself in Trade in Sports, funding the launch of his professional career by pledging 10% of winnings to those who invested in him. 

After four visits to the qualifying school he came seventh on the 2016 Challenge Tour Order of Merit, winning Le Vaudreuil Challenge to move up from 423rd in the world to 251st.

Was a highly-promising tennis player in his youth, being ranked among Sweden’s top 10 juniors before deciding that golf was his future.
