Ludvig Aberg

Ludvig Aberg

It was only in June 2023 that Aberg made his professional debut, but what a meteoric rise he has enjoyed since then. 

It was only in June 2023 that Aberg made his professional debut, but what a meteoric rise he has enjoyed since then. 

The Swede made it all the way into the game’s top 10 and was selected for September's Ryder Cup before a spectacular major debut that yielded a runner-up finish at the Masters in April.

European captain Luke Donald named him in his squad for Rome straight after the former world amateur No.1’s closing 64 swept him to a maiden DP World Tour title at the Omega European Masters in Switzerland.

He had gone into the event ranked 200th, but two weeks later led the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth after the second and third rounds. In an astonishing start to his Ryder Cup career, Aberg partnered Viktor Hovland to foursomes victories over Open Champion Brian Harman and Max Homa, then world No.1 Scottie Scheffler and five-time major winner Brooks Koepka by a record 9&7 margin.

Returning to America, he instantly lost a four-man play-off for the Sanderson Farms Championship and in November captured the RSM Classic by four after back-to-back scores of 61.

Another win might have come at February’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-am, where he was in second place before the final round was washed out, and in the week he entered the top 10 he was eighth on his Players Championship debut.
