Ludvig Aberg has revealed he will be supporting Europe’s Solheim Cup stars at Finca Cortesin as he gears up for his own debut at the Ryder Cup.

Aberg is not in the field for this week’s Cazoo French Open at Le Paris National, but will instead be on the Costa del Sol cheering on Suzann Pettersen’s European team, who are going for a historic ‘three-peat’ against Stacy Lewis’ American team in southern Spain.

The match is tantalisingly poised and Aberg will get a taste of the fierce transatlantic rivalry on his brief trip just days before going to battle himself representing the blue-and-gold in Rome.

“My caddie Jack Clarke, his fiancee Madelene Sagstrom is playing,” Aberg explained on the Chipping Forecast.

“We are going to be down there playing and practicing so it made a lot of sense for us to go there for a few days. I am really looking forward to it. I’ll be their biggest fan.”

Aberg will be taking in the Solheim action before what is undoubtedly the biggest event of his career.

The Swedish prodigy is yet to play in a major championship and has only been a professional a matter of months but is already being referred to as a “generational talent” ahead of the clash at Marco Simone.

He took a two-shot lead into the final round of the BMW Championship at Wentworth, but fell away with a closing 76.

• Why Aberg is Europe’s next superstar

On the Monday before the DP World Tour’s flagship tournament, he was part of the European team bonding trip to Marco Simone as Luke Donald’s players all went on a unique Ryder Cup scouting mission.

Rory McIlroy played alongside Aberg for the first time in Italy and spoke effusively about the 23-year-old’s talents.

“I was on the bandwagon before – certainly at the front of it now,” McIlroy said. “Anyone who watches him play golf can see the potential and kind of talent that he has.”

“Everyone talks about what a great driver of the golf ball he is, which he is, [and] the ball-striking is incredible, but I was really impressed with his wedge play and how he can control his trajectory with shorter clubs.
