Ludvig Aberg

LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech junior Ludvig Aberg has earned Big 12 Golfer of the Month for April after winning last week's Big 12 Championship title and securing three-top 10 finishes during the month.

Aberg won the Big 12 individual championship at 8-under-par to become the second Red Raider in program history to earn the Conference title and the first since Chris Ward in 2010. An Eslov, Sweden native, he shot a 3-under, 69 in the final round and closed with a total of 208 (-8) to finish two strokes ahead of Oklahoma's Chris Gotterup 210 (-6).

This is Aberg's second career Big 12 Monthly Golf award and his first since February 2021. In April, Aberg also finished as the runner-up at the Aggie Invitational and sixth at the Thunderbird Collegiate during the month and currently ranks No. 2 in the Golfstat rankings and No. 3 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings while finding himself on the spring Haskins Award Watch List. He completed the regular season with seven top-10 finishes including the three in April.

Oklahoma State's Lianna Bailey was named the Big 12 Women's Golfer of the Month after she earned her third career individual tournament win after capturing the Big 12 individual title. She became OSU's first individual champion since Kenzie Neisen in 2016 and marked the 10th time a Cowgirl has secured the individual medal. The senior from Leicester, England finished the weekend 2-over-par with a total of 215, one stroke ahead of Baylor's Addie Baggarly who finished with a 216 (+3). This is her second Big 12 Golfer of the Month accolade and first since November 2020.
