Aberg is looking for a big week at the World Wide Technology Championship
Ludvig Aberg is hoping for a big week in Mexico for a few different reasons.
For one, he’s No. 58 in the Official World Golf Ranking. Golfers always have their eye on the top 50 to earn exemptions into the major championships. Aberg did not get the chance to play in a major in 2023.
Another reason is he’s No. 99 in the FedEx Cup Fall standings. Nos. 51-60 earn exemptions into the first couple big money signature events on next year’s PGA Tour schedule.
Lastly, Aberg would like to pick up his first career PGA Tour victory here at the World Wide Technology Championship.
The first-year pro out of Sweden and Texas Tech has already won a DP World Tour event and played in a Ryder Cup. Winning on golf’s greatest tour is the next step in the progression for this 23-year-old phenom.
Aberg comes to El Cardonal as sharp as anybody having played a lot this summer and fall. We last saw him post T-13th a few weeks ago at the Shriners Children’s Open.
His result in Las Vegas was Aberg’s sixth straight top-14, which includes the win at the Omega European Masters.
Aberg did not record enough rounds on ShotLink to qualify for statistical rankings last season on the PGA Tour. If he did, he would’ve ranked 11th in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green per round (1.058).
He’s drawn rave reviews for his elite driving, which helped him gain .936 strokes per round Off-the-Tee. That would’ve ranked second only behind Scottie Scheffler (1.021).
