ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. — Ludvig Aberg added to his astonishing second half of the year when he closed with a second straight 9-under-par 61 on Sunday to win the RSM Classic, adding his first PGA Tour triumph to a victory on Europe’s DP World Tour and a winning debut in the Ryder Cup this fall.
Just six months ago, the 24-year-old Swede was still playing college golf at Texas Tech.
“Beyond my dreams,” Aberg said. “It’s been six months I’ll never forget.”
Not only did he win the final event of the PGA Tour season, he did it in record fashion. Aberg’s final birdie allowed him to tie the tour’s 72-hole scoring record, matching the 253 of Justin Thomas at the 2017 Sony Open.
