FedEx Cup: 5th. Ludvig Aberg. 2024Travelers/PowerRank/4. 4. OWGR: 4th

Ludvig Aberg didn’t have the weekend he was hoping for at the U.S. Open. He still had another impressive showing rounding out his first full year as a pro.

The 24-year-old Swede was the 36-hole leader at Pinehurst No. 2 en route to a T-12th finish. Not too shabby of a follow-up to his solo second finish this spring at the Masters.

Aberg was third in the U.S. Open field in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee (1.26). He was deft at avoiding all the sand wire grass, finishing at T-3rd in fairways hit (82%).

Many were wondering if Aberg’s summer was going to be wiped out by a meniscus tear, but he looks a lot like the former world No. 1 amateur and perhaps future world No. 1 pro we’ve come to know.

He also finished T-5th at the Memorial Tournament two weeks ago in his first start since a missed cut at the PGA Championship.

Aberg is now beginning to make second visits to PGA Tour tournaments. He’s back at the Travelers Championship after finishing T-24th (67-65-65-70) here last year in his second pro event.

Aberg is already a PGA Tour winner at last fall’s RSM Classic. Now, notching a Signature Event victory seems like the next logical progression.

The former Texas Tech Red Raider is fifth on the PGA Tour in Strokes Gained: Total (1.316). His ball striking stats are all splendid. He’s 12th in SG: Tee-to-Green (1.045), 14th in SG: Off-the-Tee (.55), and 11th in SG: Approach (.542).

There will be a lot of approaches from around 150 yards this week. He’s 11th from 150-175 (25’10”) and 44th from 125-150 (22’11”). Wedge play helps, too. Aberg is 28th from inside 100 (14’11”).

He’s also sixth in par-4 scoring (3.97). That will help at TPC River Highlands, which has 14 par-4s.
