A rising star in world golf, Ludvig Åberg produced a statement performance as he birdied four of his final five holes to land his first professional title at the Omega European Masters in Switzerland - the final Team Europe qualifying event.
It came a week after the former Number One in the World Amateur Golf Ranking finished in a tie for fourth in his first regular DP World Tour event since joining the pro ranks at the D+D REAL Czech Masters.
Prior to that, the 23-year-old Swede made history earlier this year as the first player to secure a PGA TOUR card via collegiate merit, finishing top of the 2023 PGA TOUR University Ranking after making a name for himself at Texas Tech.
He finished in a tie for 25th on his first start as a professional at the RBC Canadian Open in June and registered his first top ten as a professional with a tie for fourth at the John Deere Classic in July.
His form in his short professional career so far - and his undoubted talent - is such that he has shown enough to impress Luke Donald and his backroom team to earn a Captain’s Pick.
