Thomas Bjorn named golfer of the month

Thomas Bjorn has been named the European Tour's Asprey and Garrard Golfer of the Month for August.

No fewer than 10 candidates were discussed before a panel of writers gave Bjorn the award for finishing third in the United States PGA championship, 10th in the NEC world championship and then won the BMW International, all of which helped him into the world's top 20 for the first time. He then followed this up with a runner up spot at the Canon European Masters.

The main rival was American Bob May, who tied with Tiger Woods at the US PGA, but then lost the three-hole play-off.

Bjorn earns a 1,000 charity donation to the Golf Foundation.
