Ludvig Aberg Ranked as One of Nations Top Golfers
There is no doubt about it. Ludvig Aberg is the best golfer at Texas Tech. Ranked as the 3rd best amateur in the world, Aberg also just received the honor of being named to the All-Nicklaus team which highlights the best amateur golfers in the world. While born in Sweden, Ludvig has become one of the most talked-about amateur golfers and a prospect to look at for the PGA.
Aberg headlines a Texas Tech golf team that is ranked as the 9th best team in the nation. Alongside them are #2 Oklahoma State and #5 Texas in the Big 12 which could be considered the best conference for golf. In the Big 12 championship tournament Ludvig played well and earned the number four spot narrowly missing the podium but still putting his name alongside some of college golf’s best.
While his latest showing at the Carmel Cup was not the best. Finishing with a total score of 219 and a two-over-par. He still flashed his talent across the entire green. Looking at his card for the tournament you can see that the first round was certainly his best. Shooting under par on five of the holes. What was troubling were the two double-bogeys on holes 5 and 18. While he cleaned it up for the third round it looked as if he had the yips and could not get the ball to go where he wanted.
Ludvig will be back in action on September 13th for the Maridoe Collegiate Invitational which is held in Carrollton, Texas. I would put money down for him to have a much better showing than he did at the Carmel Cup. Look for his shots to be much more consistent, especially on the green. Putting will be the deciding factor like the saying goes, “Drive for show, put for gold.”
