Ludvig Åberg made an impressive move into professional golf, achieving a remarkable victory at the Omega European Masters in Switzerland. His journey also featured a Captain’s Pick for the Ryder Cup and a notable Top 10 finish during his debut at the BMW PGA Championship.

The 23-year-old Swede, who transitioned to the professional circuit in June, showcased his talent after an illustrious amateur career, which included rising to prominence as a collegiate superstar and topping the World Amateur Golf Ranking. In only his ninth professional event, Åberg secured a memorable DP World Tour victory with a stunning performance at Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club during the Omega European Masters.

During the final round, Åberg displayed remarkable skill, carding four consecutive birdies on the back nine and finishing 19 under par, two strokes ahead of his compatriot, Alexander Björk. Soon after this victory, he received an exciting phone call from Luke Donald, notifying him of his selection to represent Europe in the Ryder Cup at Marco Simone Golf and Country Club against the United States.

Just two weeks later, Åberg continued to impress, taking the lead by two shots at the start of the final day at Wentworth. Although he had to settle for a share of tenth place after a challenging final round that included two double-bogeys in his opening seven holes.

The title at the BMW PGA Championship was claimed by New Zealand’s Ryan Fox, who secured his first Rolex Series victory by birdying the last hole, making him the first player from New Zealand to win this prestigious tournament and the first from his country to secure a Rolex Series title. This victory, combined with his top-three finish at the Horizon Irish Open, elevated him to third place in the Race to Dubai Rankings in Partnership with Rolex.

Completing the Golfer of the Month voting were Swede Vincent Norrman and Japan’s Ryo Hisatsune, who emerged as winners at September’s Horizon Irish Open and Cazoo Open de France, respectively.
