The World No.200 is, however, in solid position after the first round of the European Masters thanks to a 6-under 64.

Donald has already confirmed in various interviews this season that he is a big admirer of Aberg's game.

Donald has even drawn comparisons in Aberg's game with Rory McIlroy.

Aberg for Ryder cup is a no brainer— Byeong Hun An (@ByeongHunAn) August 31, 2023
