The Swedish star’s win means he now becomes the world no.32, and in doing so, he booked his place at next year’s Masters, his first major.

“I’m super happy. It’s kind of beyond my dreams,” the 24-year-old told reporters.

“This is the sport that I love and the sport that I’m going to love for a very long time. Watching these events from a very young age is what I’ve done, so to see myself win is really cool.

“It validates my skill set and my capabilities. If you told me I’d achieve this a couple of months ago I would not have believed you.

“To be in this position, I need to pinch myself on the arm.”

The Swede was named as one of the Team Europe’s wildcards for the Ryder Cup earlier this year after being described by captain Luke Donald as well as Rory McIlroy as a ‘generational talent’.

Aberg won the DP World Tour at September’s Omega European Masters, and since then, Donald has saluted his latest win.

“Anyone paying attention knew the unlimited potential of Ludvig,” wrote Donald on X in the immediate aftermath of Aberg’s victory.

“He showed that at Crans and now again dominating in Sea Island this week. Congratulations to you, Jack and your whole team, the sky is the limit.”
