Thomas Bjorn named golfer of the month

Thomas Björn was named European Tour golfer of the month for March following his victory over Tiger Woods in the Dubai Desert Classic.

Björn, who partnered with Woods in Dubai at the beginning of March, came from a shot behind in the final round to beat the American and Ireland's Padraig Harrington by two shots.

Bjorn, who wins a £1,000 charity donation for the Golf Foundation, played all four rounds with the world number one in the Dubai Desert Classic and beat him by two shots when Woods took a double-bogey seven on the final hole.

It was also decided to make a special award to Ireland's Des Smyth, whose victory in the Madeira Island Open at 48 years and 34 days old made him the oldest winner in tour history.

Edward Asprey, said: "Thomas' effort against Tiger Woods was quite phenomenal and, as the panel pointed out, he stood head-to-head, shoulder-to-shoulder, toe-to-toe with Tiger for four terrific rounds, during which he conducted himself quite superbly both on and off the course."
