The truly astonishing start to Ludvig Aberg’s professional career continues. 

Aberg only turned pro in June, but has now added the RSM Classic as his first PGA Tour victory to his DP World Tour triumph at the Omega European Masters.

The Swedish phenomenon posted back-to-back rounds of 61 over the weekend at Sea Island to finish 29-under-par on just his 11th start as a professional on the US circuit.

The 24-year-old made just one bogey all week and finished four shots clear of his nearest challenger Mackenzie Hughes.

Victory means Aberg’s first major will now play his first ever major championship at the Masters in April, and he has leapt to world no.32 having remarkably played in only 19 qualifying events.
