European Tour player Alexander Björk is to continue his apparel sponsorship with Galvin Green for the tenth consecutive season.

Björk has worn Galvin Green clothing ever since he turned pro

The 28-year-old Swede, who won his maiden European Tour title last year in China, has worn Galvin Green clothing ever since he turned professional back in 2009. Born in the same Swedish city of Växjö as the brand’s headquarters, Björk has agreed an extension of the special partnership that served both parties well as he climbed the world rankings in recent years.

“I’m really pleased to sign with Galvin Green once again as the garments look great and I always feel they give me an advantage when playing in different temperatures and weather conditions on Tour,” said Alexander.

Commenting on the extension, Christian Nilsson, CEO of Galvin Green said: “We’re so pleased that Alexander has decided to continue to wear our clothing on Tour and very proud of him as the ‘home town’ player doing so well on the world stage.”

Björk is scheduled to defend his Volvo China Open title at The Genzon Golf Club in Shenzhen, in May this year. Last April, he carded a final round 65 to emerge from a six-way tie at the top of the leaderboard, having made four birdies on the back nine, including two over the last four holes at the Topwin Golf & Country Club in Beijing.

Last season, he also finished second at the British Masters at Walton Heath and tied-second at both the UBS Kong Kong Open and the Trophèe Hassan II event in Morocco.
