Ludvig Åberg's Winning Clubs | The RSM Classic
It was a record-setting performance for Ludvig Aberg this past weekend, as he collected his 2nd professional win, and first PGA Tour victory with his four-stroke victory at the RSM Classic.
Aberg used a bag primarily made of Titleist clubs on his way to victory, including some older generation irons.

Off the tee, Aberg plays a Titleist TSR2 at 9 degrees with a Fujikura Ventus Black 6 X shaft in it. His current generation Titleist driver was on fire at the RSM Classic. Aberg averaged nearly 310 yards off the tee, which ranked 2nd in the field. He wasn’t just long off the tee, but also accurate, finishing 6th in driving accuracy by hitting more than 82 percent of the fairways. That combination of length and precision helped Aberg lead the field in strokes gained off the tee.
Aberg’s moves away from Titleist for his 3-wood, where he plays a TaylorMade Stealth 2 with a Fujikura Ventus TR Blue 8X shaft. The Stealth 2 fairway wood is designed to fit a wide range of players due to its high MOI and increased ball speed. With Aberg playing a more forgiving driver model, it’s not surprising that he pairs that with a more forgiving fairway wood, especially when creating ball speed and distance aren’t an issue for Aberg. The Stealth 2 fairway wood is powered by Advanced Inverted Cone Technology, which consists of a variable thickness face design to maximize ball speed across the face. The Center of gravity is positioned very low, helping players launch the ball better off the surface, while the Thru-Slot Speed Pocket helps maintain performance no matter where the ball is struck.
Here’s where Aberg’s bag gets a little more unique, playing some older generation Titleist irons. For his 2-iron, Aberg games a Titleist 718 T-MB, and then finishes off his bag with some original T100 irons. While his play off the tee certainly deserves its attention, Aberg’s iron play was also elite in his victory. He tied for 5th in total greens in regulation, giving himself a look at birdie or better on 62 of the 72 holes. That play along with his driver helped Aberg lead the field in Strokes Gained Tee to Green as well.
Aberg games four wedges, playing the Vokey SM9 with a variety of grinds for his pitching wedge, gap wedge and sand wedge. For his lob wedge, Aberg stays in the Vokey family, going with the Wedgeworks V grind. With his length off the tee, Aberg played plenty of wedges into greens, which played a major role in the number of greens he hit in regulation. But on those occasions he didn’t find the green in regulation, Aberg was outstanding scrambling, getting up and down for par on 9 of the 10 times he missed the green, including his only time in the sand.
Aberg’s length and accuracy off the tee, combined with his precision from the fairway gave him plenty of scoring opportunities, and his putter kept pace with the rest of his bag. Playing an Odyssey White Hot Versa #1, Aberg finished 2nd in the field in birdies with 26, and tied for the tournament lead with 2 eagles at the RSM Classic. He finished tied for 9th in total putts, while finishing 4th in both strokes gained and putts per GIR.
