(Växjö, Sweden) – Galvin Green – the world’s leading maker of high-performance and functional golf clothing for serious layers and the No. 1 global golf partner of GORE-TEX® – announces that brand ambassador Alexander Björk captured his first European Tour title at the Volvo China Open this past weekend, moving him into the top 10 on the Race to Dubai.
Björk began the day a shot off the lead, but powered into the top spot with four birdies on the back nine, including two over the last four holes at the Topwin Golf & Country Club in Beijing.
In contrasting temperatures reaching 29ºC in China, Björk kept cool in a VENTIL8™ PLUS Mayer polo shirt and matching VENTIL8 PLUS Noah pants.
Björk’s stylish performance in the final round came after a tie for second at the UBS Hong Kong Open and third in last week’s Trophèe Hassan II event in Morocco.
“I felt confident almost all the way,” said the 27-year-old. “I’ve been striking the ball so well off the tee and also into the greens all week. It (the final round) was the best round of my life. It’s easy to play a round when the swing is there. I’m super happy!”
This was the second maiden European Tour title of the season for a Team Galvin Green player, following the victory of England’s Chris Paisley at the BMW South Africa Open Championship in January.
Galvin Green is also the Official Team Supplier of Outerwear for the 2018 European Ryder Cup Team. Through this partnership, the company will provide its premium waterproof garments to the captains, vice captains, team members and their caddies during the matches at Le Golf National.
