PGA Tour star Ludvig Aberg has confirmed he is ready to roll at this week's US PGA despite withdrawing from last week's Wells Fargo Championship. 

Aberg, 24, was forced to withdraw from the PGA Tour's $20m signature event at Quail Hollow Club after picking up a knee injury.

But the European Ryder Cup hero admits he is 'good' to go on the eve of the second major of the season, which begins Thursday at Valhalla.


The 2024 US PGA Championship also marks Aberg's second-ever major appearance following his impressive solo second at The Masters last month.

Speaking to a pool of reporters ahead of the US PGA Championship, Aberg cleared up any fears that his knee injury could hold him back in his pursuit of a first major title. 

He confirmed he decided to WD from the Wells Fargo Championship last week solely for 'safety reasons' to ensure he was fully ready for the US PGA Championship. 

Aberg said: 

"Knee's good. It was more of a safety concern last week that I didn't play. I'm consulting with my doctors and that I trust them with everything that I have, so it's not bothering me at all this week, and I look forward to playing."

He added: 

"I'm wearing a brace just for safety reasons, but it's nothing that's bothering me. I'm focusing on the golf."

Aberg, the current World No.6, has very quickly announced himself as the newest rising superstar on the block. 

To put his radical rise into perspective, Aberg had not even made his professional debut on the PGA Tour this time last year. 

After a number of impressive performances on the PGA Tour, the big-hitting Swede captured his maiden DP World Tour title at the Omega European Masters in Switzerland, which secured him a pick in Luke Donald's 2023 European Ryder Cup team last September. 

Aberg proved a major thorn in the United States Ryder Cup side at Marco Simone as Europe ran out five-point victors in Rome.

He then went and chalked up his first PGA Tour title in commanding fashion at the RSM Classic in November. 

Although Aberg has yet to pick up a win so far in 2024, he has amassed five top-10 finishes on the eve of the US PGA. 

Aberg is priced up at odds of 18/1 to land his maiden major title at Valhalla.

He will join Xander Schauffele and Justin Thomas for the opening two rounds.
