Ludvig Aberg (Pro V1x) played his final five holes in 4 under par Sunday in Switzerland to capture the first victory of his young professional career.

The 23-year-old Swede delivered a back nine to remember, rolling his 2023 Pro V1x in for four straight birdies on Nos. 14-17 to come home in 31.

He tapped in for par on the last to put the finishing touches on a final round 64 and come-from-behind win. Four rounds in the 60’s (64-67-66-64) around Crans-sur-Sierre GC saw Aberg reach 19 under, two shots clear of second place.

Aberg led a 1-2-3-4 finish for Titleist golf ball players: Alexander Bjork (Pro V1, 2nd), Matt Fitzpatrick (Pro V1x, T3), Connor Syme (Pro V1).

“I don't even know where to start,” Aberg said. “It's a pretty surreal feeling to be honest. Obviously super, super happy... I've always had that [belief] that I’ve been able to do it, but to do it is pretty cool.”

In control of his Pro V1x all week, Aberg led the field in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green (+3.76 per round), with over two strokes per round coming from his approach play and 1.29 strokes per round coming from his tee shots.

He also finished fourth in Greens in Regulation (82%). Aberg’s 15.04 total strokes gained tee to green was more than three strokes better than second place in that category (+11.8).


– “I like to put spin on the ball. I like to hit it a little bit higher to have a little bit of a different angle coming into the firmer greens that we play here on the PGA TOUR. So I think the Pro V1x helps me with that and it helps me to be able to compete against the best players in the world.”

– “I just love the feel around the greens, putting, chipping, I love the softer feel (of 2023 Pro V1x), and it flights the way that I want to.”

– “What you want when you’re chipping is that little extra feeling of checking up on the green, and making sure that when the greens get a little firmer and faster, you’re still able to put that spin on it. Which I feel like [the Pro V1x] allows me to do. Chipping and short game is such feel-based – what you like to feel, what you don't like to feel. And this allows me to have that creative mindset.”

– “As a golfer and as a competitor, you always look for the perfect shot and the perfect execution. It's not always going to show up that way, but at least this golf ball allows you to have that consistency and that way I know exactly what it’s going to do when it reacts on the green, when it reacts in the air. This allows me to have my spin rate in a very consistent level, which allows me to score a bit better as well.”

– “The Titleist golf ball is the best golf ball there is. I’ve used it for a very long time, it’s something I trust and it’s something that I really enjoy using.”

– “I used to live in a small town. I would always go into the woods and look for [Pro V1’s]. And every time you found a new one, found a really nice one, that was like the best feeling. So I used to have a ball bag of all my Pro V1’s that I found. Every once in a while you got to go into the pro shop and get a new one, but it didn’t happen very often. So now we're super spoiled. We get new balls every now and then. So, it's really cool and I've played it for a very long time.”


The winner of the Omega European Masters gamed a TSR2 driver, Titleist T100 irons and four Vokey Design wedges in winning his first professional title.

The former Texas Tech star and No. 1 player on the 2023 PGA TOUR University Ranking put on a clinic off the tee, ranking second in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee (+1.29 per round) and third in driving distance (328.25 yards).

Since making his pro debut this summer at the RBC Canadian Open, he leads the PGA TOUR in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee (according to @JustinRayGolf). He also finished second in SG: Approach (+2.24 per round) and fourth in GIR (82%).

AMATEUR | Walker Cup

Gordon Sargent – playing a Pro V1 golf ball, TSR2 driver and full bag of Titleist equipment – added his name to the history books in St. Andrews while leading the United States to a 14 ½ -11 ½ comeback victory in the 49th Walker Cup.

The 20-year-old Vanderbilt junior became just the 19th player in Walker Cup history to end the match with a perfect 4-0-0 record. Sargent secured his final point with a 1-up victory in his Sunday singles match, winning both the 17th and 18th holes.

On 18, Sargent drove the green with his TSR2+ 14.5 fairway, his Pro V1 stopping pin high to set up the clinching birdie.

“This is the biggest achievement of my career so far,” Sargent said according to Golf Digest. “Winning four points for the U.S. is huge, especially seeing what it means to everyone else. It’s such a big deal. I played well all four rounds and capped it off with what was my best shot of the week on the 18th tee. It was a full 3-wood. My caddie told me on the tee I could rip it, so I did. I don’t see going up the right side as aggressive. I’ve been hitting the ball well all week so I just went ahead and hit it.”
