Ludvig Aberg could be dropped on the moon and would shoot low scores. It’s hard to find more polar opposite golf tournaments than a Ryder Cup in Italy and the Sanderson Farms Championship in Mississippi.

He bounced from Marco Simone, where he posted a 2-2-0 record to help the European side take back the cup two weeks ago, to the PGA Tour a continent away.

Aberg didn’t show many signs of wear. He recorded rounds of 67-69-66-68 to make it into a five-way playoff. Luke List dropped a 43-foot birdie bomb to win the playoff, but it was still a wildly successful week for Aberg.

The recent Texas Tech alum just won a DP World Tour event last month. He nearly doubled up on the PGA Tour. Instead, he settled for his best finish on that circuit. Previous best was T-4th this summer at the John Deere Classic.

"“I think playing those last couple of holes when you’re in contention, when you’re close to the lead or chasing down the lead, it’s the most fun you’ll ever have on the golf course,” Aberg was transcribed by ASAP Sports. “It’s very true; I had that experience in Switzerland a couple of weeks ago, and I just want to do it again and again and again. Hopefully I’ll be able to do it soon again, but first off, congrats to Luke, and hope he celebrates accordingly.”"

This was Aberg’s fourth straight top-10 worldwide and fifth straight top-15.

He’s at the Shriners Children’s Open for the first time.

Aberg’s clearly shown he doesn’t need course knowledge, or rest, to be successful.

I don’t see him getting by the tournament’s defending champion, but I see Aberg tearing up TPC Summerlin with four rounds in the 60s this week in Las Vegas.
