Rory McIlroy cannot wait to tee it up with Ludvig Åberg at this week’s BMW PGA Championship after declaring himself “at the front” of the Swede’s bandwagon.

Åberg claimed a maiden DP World Tour win in Switzerland earlier this month in just his sixth start and third as a professional, just a day before being handed a captain’s pick for the Ryder Cup by European captain Luke Donald.

The 23-year-old only entered the paid ranks in June after claiming his second Big 12 Men’s Golf Championship on the US collegiate circuit and picking up many accolades along the way.


He now makes his third Rolex Series appearance at Wentworth Club – with McIlroy and Viktor Hovland for company on days one and two – and, after a Ryder Cup scouting trip at Marco Simone Golf and Country Club earlier this week, World Number Two McIlroy is eager to see more of his new team-mate.
