Report: Ludvig Aberg replaces caddie with familiar face on PGA Tour

Rising golf star Ludvig Aberg has reportedly nabbed Rickie Fowler's former caddie Joe Skovron for the 2023-2024 campaign. 

Skovron is known for his 13-year affiliation with Fowler before the duo amicably parted ways last year. 

Golf Channel first reported Aberg had split with former golfer Jack Clarke on 11 December. 

Clarke was on the bag when Aberg turned professional in June 2023. He is married to LPGA Tour star Madelene Sagstrom. 

During their time together, the 24-year-old Swede won his maiden events on the PGA, DP World Tour. 

He also starred in Europe's Ryder Cup victory in September. It was the first time a rookie played in the contest before competing in a major. 

A highlight included partnering Viktor Hovland and inflicting the largest ever defeat in the contest's history over Scottie Scheffler and Brooks Koepka

Aberg was considered a controversial captain's pick by Luke Donald but has so far justified the hype. 

Over the weekend, Aberg also agreed his first ever equipment deal, signing a multi-year contract with Titleist. 

Skovron was working with another young talent, Tom Kim.

Skovron and Kim worked together as the South Korean defended the Shriners Children's Open in what was his breakout year.

Aberg will play his first major at next year's Masters after qualifying by clinching the RSM Classic in November. 

Skovron is an experienced caddie and has been on the bag for more than 50 majors. 

The first event they will work together will be the The Sentry in January.

The annual event in Kapalua, Hawaii, represents the first signature event of the brand new PGA Tour season. 

For the first time in more than a decade, the Tour will revert to a calendar-year based schedule.
