Ludvig Aberg, a rising star in golf, just clinched his first PGA Tour win at the RSM Classic. The young Swede turned pro in June this year. Even though it was already clear that Luvig is a great talent, who could do wonders on the golf scene, many were waiting for the moment he became a pro in order to be convinced of those sentences.
It seems that right from the start, Aberg silenced those who had doubts about his talent, and showed that he really is one of the greatest talents on the golf scene. The fact that three months after becoming a pro, he received a call to play at the Ryder Cup, is a confirmation of his superiority and quality.
Ludvig Aberg and his rapid success
His rapid success continued with a victory at the Omega European Masters and contributing to Team Europe's Ryder Cup win. Despite a missed cut and some close calls, Aberg has earned $3,844,838.81 in prize money since turning pro.
A recent $1,512,000 paycheck significantly boosted his earnings, mainly from winning at the DP World Tour and the PGA Tour. Earning huge money right at the start of his career is a clear indication of what we could expect from him in the future.
Earning serious money is a great motivation for the challenges that await you. However, Aberg is certainly not a golfer who is primarily motivated by money. The desire to be the best is what drives him from the first day of his career.
“I still pinch myself in the morning when I wake up to kind of realize that this is what I do for a job. It's been so much fun,” he said. Upcoming appearances at prestigious events like The Masters and the Sentry Tournament of Champions promise to boost Aberg's earnings further, especially as he focuses more on high-paying PGA Tour events in the coming year. Judging by what we've seen so far, Aberg could make a lot more money in the near future.
