Ludvig Aberg Drove The Green On A Par 4 Despite Destroying His Driver Head On Impact

Ludvig Aberg

Want to see a combination of money and skill that money cannot buy? Look no further than rising golf superstar Ludvig Aberg. The strapping 24-year-old Swede already has wins on the PGA and European Tours, ranks ninth in the world, excelled as a Ryder Cup rookie last year, and is in excellent form with The Masters looming next week.

When you participate in a Ryder Cup, play four matches, and manage two full points for Team Europe before making your major debut, you might be decent at golf.

As he gears up for his maiden stroll down Magnolia Lane in Augusta, Aberg is in action at the Valero Texas Open and making a move on Saturday. On his eighth hole of the day, the par-4 17th at TPC San Antonio’s Oaks Course, this man drove the friggin’ green even as his clubface flew away right as he made contact:

What the actual…?

The world golf rankings are a bit of a farce right now, since LIV players aren’t credited for anything they do on their fledgling circuit. Nevertheless, there is nothing inauthentic about Aberg’s talent. His ceiling is limitless, and if the major nerves get to him at The Masters, trust that he will be a perennial contender at the game’s most prestigious events for the next decade-plus at least.

To give you an idea of how solid Aberg’s game already is, he ranks 13th in total driving efficiency, second in proximity to the hole on approach shots, 29th in scrambling and 32nd in average distance of putts made per round. While his short game and putter could still use some fine tuning, Aberg is so good tee to green and hits absolute piss missiles off the tee at a stunning rate.

Take this highlight reel from the middle of 2023, followed by a couple other tweets to underscore my point from the previous sentence.

“Built different” as the kids say these days. That shot tracer video is among the best cutups of a golf swing you’ll ever see. Rivals the reel I covered from Tommy Fleetwood a while back.

I guess I’d be shocked if almost anyone else lost his driver head upon releasing the club and still hit to about 10 feet from the stick on a par-4. Since it’s Ludvig Aberg, I’m starting to be less surprised by anything he does at every turn.

Might want to keep this guy on your radar…
