Ludvig Åberg relishing Augusta spotlight

Ludvig Åberg was loving life on the biggest stage as he continued his quest to make history at the Masters Tournament.

The Swede has been on a remarkable journey since turning professional last June, being a part of Europe's victorious Ryder Cup team and winning his first titles on the DP World Tour and PGA TOUR.

Entering this week at ninth in the Official World Golf Ranking, it is hard to believe he is teeing it up in his first Major Championship at Augusta National, with no player having ever won the Masters when making their Major debut.

Åberg could be the first as he enters the final day just three shots off the lead and far from shying away from the task at hand, he is eager to embrace it.

"I think about it all the time," he said. "I'm OK thinking about it.

"Obviously I'm a competitor and I want to win tournaments. I feel very fortunate to be in this position and to be here playing golf.

"I don't think you should shy away from it. I don't think you should try to push it away. I try to embrace it and I try to be OK with all that comes with it."

High winds and a storm delay have made Augusta a slightly different proposition than in previous years and Åberg was pleased with how he and caddie Joe Skovron handled the situation.

"I think what me and Joe have been doing, we're both very disciplined," he said. "We're not trying to force anything. We're not trying to go for pins, and we're not trying to make decisions that will cost us, I guess.

"We're trying to take calculated risks all the time. I feel like we've been very disciplined toward our targets and hopefully we'll be able to do that again tomorrow."
