Swedish rookie Ludvig Aberg caps rapid rise by getting captain’s pick for Europe’s Ryder Cup team

Ludvig Aberg’s rapid rise in just three months as a pro has been capped by getting selected as one of the European team’s captain’s picks for the Ryder Cup against the United States outside Rome this month. Luke Donald filled out his team by picking Tommy Fleetwood, Shane Lowry and Justin Rose along with rookies Aberg, Sepp Straka and Nicolai Hojgaard. Straka and Hojgaard got the call ahead of Adrian Meronk in what was widely seen as Donald’s toughest decision. But it’s the presence of the 23-year-old Aberg that will most excite European golf fans.
