Ludvig Aberg has rarely had a misstep in his pro career. The Swedish sensation has been stellar since turning pro last summer.

One of the few blemishes came at the 2023 Genesis Scottish Open.

Even that wasn’t so bad. Aberg posted 71-68 to sit at 2-under-par in his debut at The Renaissance Club. That unfortunately left him one shot outside the cut line.

To cut him some slack, that was his fourth straight week of competition. He was also coming over across the pond from posting a top-five finish the previous week at the John Deere Classic.

At the time, Aberg was inclined to play as often as he could to earn status. Now, he’s a top-five player in the world who can be choosy about his schedule.

He comes to Europe rested with two weeks off. That portends good things for this week in Scotland.

So does Aberg’s current form. He nearly won in his Masters debut, taking solo second a few months back.

A knee injury plagued his next shot at a major with a missed cut at the PGA Championship, but he’s back to his old self with T-5th at the Memorial Tournament, T-12th at the U.S. Open, and T-27th at the Travelers Championship.

Through June 30, the 24-year-old ranks sixth on the PGA Tour in Strokes Gained: Total (1.236). He’s gaining in every SG category, including 10th in Approach (.587), 12th in Tee-to-Green (1.14) and 14th Off-the-Tee (.532).

He’s third in average proximity (35’1”) and sixth in bogey avoidance (12.47%).

Aberg comes to Scotland well-rested having a couple weeks off to rest up his knee that ailed him this spring.
