Player Profile: Ludvig Aberg

Ludvig Aberg only turned professional in June of this year but the Swedish sensation is set to make his Ryder Cup debut for Europe at the end of September after he was handed one of Luke Donald's six captain's picks.

A two-time recipient of the Ben Hogan Award for best college player in the USA, Aberg spent 29 weeks at the top of the Amateur world rankings before turning professional ahead of the PGA Tour's Canadian Open.

He has already wrapped up PGA Tour playing rights by virtue of a glittering college career at Texas Tech and he became a DP World Tour champion on Sunday, firing four birdies in his closing five holes to claim the European Masters at Crans-sur-Sierre.
