Ludvig Noa Åberg (LOOD-vig OH-burg; born 31 October 1999) is a Swedish professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour and European Tour.

Before turning professional in June 2023, Åberg had been ranked number one in the World Amateur Golf Ranking for a total of 29 weeks. He won the Ben Hogan Award as the best collegiate player in the United States in both 2022 and 2023, and finished on top of the 2022–23 PGA Tour University rankings to earn membership on the tour. Within five months of turning professional, Åberg achieved his first tournament victories on both the European Tour and the PGA Tour, and was a member of the winning European team in the 2023 Ryder Cup.


At the start of the 2024 season, Åberg replaced his old caddie with Rickie Fowler‘s former caddie, Joe Skovron.

In February 2024, at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Åberg was in solo-second place after 54 holes, one stroke behind Wyndham Clark. Due to inclement weather, the tournament was called off and Clark declared the winner before the final round could take place. The result moved Åberg to 11th on the Official World Golf Ranking.

He made his major championship debut at the 2024 Masters Tournament, finishing solo 2nd to world number one Scottie Scheffler. Two weeks later, he moved to a career-best number six on the Official World Golf Ranking, after starting 2023 outside 3000th.
