Ludvig Åberg’s Masters Debut at Augusta National

Read about Ludvig Åberg’s impressive solo second finish at the Masters Tournament, marking a stellar debut at a major championship and showcasing his potential for future success on the golf course.

Ludvig Åberg’s Impressive Masters Debut Earns Solo Second Finish

In his first appearance at a major championship, Texas Tech alum Ludvig Åberg captured a solo second finish at the Masters Tournament, finishing four strokes behind world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, who claimed his second green jacket on Sunday. Åberg’s impressive result will likely earn him an invitation to next year’s Masters, as is customary for the top-12 finishers.

A year ago, Åberg was competing in his final regular season event as a senior at Texas Tech, where he recorded four individual victories and swept the three national Player of the Year awards. Now the 24-year-old’s professional resume includes victories at the 2023 RSM Classic and the DP World Tour’s 2023 Omega European Masters, five top-five finishes, a Ryder Cup victory, and a solo second in his first-ever major appearance.

Highlighting Åberg’s success at Augusta National was his 3-under 69 in Friday’s second round, which was the lowest score of the day on a challenging day that saw a 75.08 scoring average, the highest in a single round at the Masters since 2016.

“In the final round, Åberg held a share of the lead after the ninth hole and became part of a three-way tie at 7-under, alongside Scheffler and Collin Morikawa.”

Scheffler ultimately prevailed, but Åberg posted his third consecutive round under par on Sunday, becoming the first player to finish runner-up in his Masters Tournament debut since Will Zalatoris in 2021.

Åberg’s performance at the Masters pushed him to the top of the Aon Next 10, earning him a spot in this week’s RBC Heritage, where he will be joined by fellow PGA TOUR University alum Austin Eckroat.
