Ludvig Aberg only turned professional a handful of months ago. Since then, he has won on the DP World Tour (European), lost in a playoff last week in the Sanderson Farms Championship, and before even playing in his very first major championship, starred at the 2023 Ryder Cup in Rome, winning 2 of the 3 matches he played in.
Welcome to professional golf Ludvig — you studly Swedish Texas Tech grad full-fledged golf star with Thor good looks and the swing of a young Ernie Els.
What about Ludvig’s swing has his peers, fans, and golf media buzzing? Here’s our analysis along with a Golf Digest breakdown with awe-inspiring video clips of the big Swede (6’3″) hitting rippers.
- He swings within himself – reminiscent of Ernie Els and Davis Love III. Rythmical.
- There is no extra movement – for example he doesn’t overly shift his weight back and forth, or come unglued when he’s trying to pick up an extra 5 yards off the tee on a par 5.
- He doesn’t stand over his shot and waggle, waggle, waggle, waggle — his preshot routine is simple and repeatable.
- His swing (including with the driver) sets at the top shorter than parallel — he doesn’t ever lose it at the top.
- At impact, he has fully cleared his hips allowing his arms and hands to drop into place for a perfect release
- Because of how repeatable his swing is, it holds up under pressure
- It makes us jealous
Ludvig is going to have a huge 2024. We are projecting three worldwide victories and at least one top-3 in a Major. Look out world. Here comes the next golf sensation.
