It Was Only A Matter Of Time For Åberg

Welcome to The Weekly Slice.

Let’s talk golf.

Tour Roundup

PGA Tour

Ludvig Åberg, only six months into his professional career, made a stunning impact by winning the RSM Classic, his first PGA Tour title.

The 24-year-old Swede showcased exceptional skill, carding back-to-back rounds of 61 to finish at 29 under par, four shots ahead of Canada’s Mackenzie Hughes.

This victory, following his win at the Omega European Masters, has propelled Åberg to world number 32 and secured him an invitation to next year’s Masters.

His performance at the Ryder Cup, where he was hailed as a “generational talent” by European captain Luke Donald, was further solidified by this win.

Åberg’s 61-61 finish set a new PGA Tour record for the lowest closing 36 holes.

It was also the final week in the FedEx Cup Fall events, which confirms which players will have full playing status on the PGA Tour for next season.

DP World Tour

Nicolai Hojgaard clinched a dramatic victory at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

The 22-year-old Dane finished with a stellar final round with an eight-under-par 64, despite missing a short birdie putt on the 18th.

This win, his first Rolex Series title, was marked by a remarkable streak of five consecutive birdies from the 13th hole.

It’s a significant milestone for Hojgaard, earning him a $3 million prize and elevating him to a career-high 50th in the world rankings which would get him into next year’s Masters.

And how about this round by Matt Wallace on the third day, with 9 birdies on the back nine!

Despite that round of 60, unfortunately for Matt, it was only enough for a tied 2nd finish with Fleetwood and Hovland.

As the final event of the DP World Tour season, it meant that 10 players managed to secure their PGA Tour playing rights for the following season.

This week the new 2023/24 season kicks off with events in Brisbane, Australia and Johannesburg, South Africa.


Amy Yang triumphed at the CME Group Tour Championship, ending the LPGA Tour season with a spectacular three-shot victory.

Yang, who shared the lead with Nasa Hataoka at the start of the final round, faced early challenges but regained momentum with crucial birdies on the 7th and 8th holes.

Yang maintained her composure, finishing with a six-under 66, including birdies on the final two holes.

This victory, her first since 2019 and first in the U.S., was marked by only two bogeys throughout the week, showcasing her exceptional skill and resilience.

Yang’s win at Tiburón Golf Club, Naples, not only earned her a $2 million prize but also set a new 72-hole scoring record for the championship.

World Of Golf


Following the roof collapsing, Tiger and Rory’s new golf league, TGL is now being delayed until 2025.

Certainly not the start they were looking for.

Rahm’s $600m Deal

Could John Rahm be off to LIV Golf?

There’s been plenty of speculation about Rahm potentially being in the later stages of signing with the tour, for a $600m deal.

Having pulled out of TGL, due to not being able to offer the level of commitment required, it could be more than just speculation.
