It was all going so well for Ludvig Aberg at The Masters until a patron knocked a snack out of his hand at the turn...

In one of the more comical moments at The Masters, Ludvig Aberg was seen dropping his snack while fist-bumping the patrons on his walk up to the 10th tee. 

Aberg, 24, had just drained a mammoth birdie putt on the 9th to move into a three-way tie for the lead with Scottie Scheffler and Collin Morikawa.

There were smiles and cheers all round as the European Ryder Cup star went in search of becoming the first player to win on their Masters debut since Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979. 

But as soon as Aberg's snack dropped from his hand, so too did his chances of entering the record books over the next half hour.


As Aberg turned to the patron in disbelief that he'd just lost half of his energy bar, Scheffler nearly holed out for eagle in the group behind to move into the outright lead. 

Aberg went on to par the 10th but then found the water with his approach shot into the par-4 11th en route to a costly double-bogey six. 

Scheffler birdied the 10th in the group behind and despite dropping a shot at the 11th, went on to card a solid 68 to see out a four-shot win over Aberg on 11-under par.

Despite making a double on the 11th, Aberg recovered both shots with back-to-birdies on 13 and 14 before making pars to the house for a 69. 

Max Homa was also in the hunt for a maiden major title but he came unstuck when unfortunately finding a bush at the back of the par-3 12th. 

Homa (73) went on to double the 12th and he eventually finished T3 alongside Morikawa (74) and Tommy Fleetwood (69).

Aberg, who won the 2023 RSM Classic, did at least take consolation from earning $2.1m for finishing second at Augusta National. 

He became the first Masters debutant to finish runner-up at The Masters since Will Zalatoris in 2021.

It's fair to say Aberg also earned a whole host of new fans following his impressive display in his first-ever major tournament. 

Aberg became the first player in history to play in a Ryder Cup before teeing it up in his first major. 

As a result of Aberg's solo second at The Masters, he vaults to a career-best seventh in the Official World Golf Rankings.
