News Update


Ludvig Aberg has been named to Europe’s Ryder Cup team, which will face the United States in Rome.

On Sunday, the 23-year-old, who only turned pro in June, won the European Masters in Switzerland.

“I have faith in Ludvig – I think he’ll be a generational player,” Donald added.

Tommy Fleetwood, Sepp Straka, Justin Rose, Shane Lowry, and Nicolai Hojgaard have all been included to the 12-man squad that will face the US in Rome.

They will be joined by Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Viktor Hovland, Tyrrell Hatton, Matt Fitzpatrick, and Robert MacIntyre as the team for the biannual match at Marco Simone from September 29 to October 1.

Along with MacIntyre, Denmark’s Hojgaard and Austria’s Straka will be making their Ryder Cup debuts, while 2019 Open winner Lowry will be making his maiden appearance in Europe.

Following a stunning 19-9 setback at Whistling Straits in 2021, Europe will strive to reclaim the Ryder Cup from the United States.

‘I was just blown away by his game.’
Given his lack of experience, the possibility of Aberg’s selection had been a huge and exciting talking point prior to Monday’s news.

Shooting 65 and 67 in the opening two rounds of the Rocket Mortgage Classic earlier this year with Donald was a solid early audition for a spot.

And the former world number one amateur, who placed first in the PGA Tour University rankings to win his card, demonstrated his immense promise in the last qualifying tournament at Crans-sur-Sierre to make the shortest transition from amateur to Ryder Cup in the contest’s history.

“He’s going to be around for a long time and do amazing things,” Donald continued.

“He was going to play the next eight if he wasn’t going to play this one.” That’s how talented I believe he is.
