Åberg's victory in Sea Island puts a bow on a sensational six-month stretch
In just his 11th start as a professional on the PGA Tour, Ludvig Åberg not only entered the winner's circle for the first time at the 2023 RSM Classic but made history doing it. Scoring consecutive 61s over the final two rounds at Sea Island Golf Club, Åberg posted the lowest total over Rounds 3 and 4 of a tournament in PGA Tour history at 122.
That mark ties the PGA Tour record for lowest 36-hole score over any two rounds, while his 72-hole total of 253 similarly matched a four-round scoring record. Åberg's 54-hole total of 186, posted over Rounds 2-4, also made PGA Tour history, according to Justin Ray.
The Swedish superstar raced past the field with a 5-under 30 on the first nine Sunday before fending off a feisty Mackenzie Hughes en route to a four-stroke victory.
