    Texas Tech’s Ludvig Aberg won The Prestige for the third consecutive year last week, finishing one stroke ahead of Pepperdine’s William Mouw and two ahead of the No. 1-ranked amateur in the world, Stanford junior Michael Thorbjornsen. Aberg, who is No. 1 in the PGA TOUR University Velocity Global Ranking and No. 3 in WAGR, now has 12 consecutive top-11 finishes in college events, a streak that started with his win at The Prestige in 2022. The Swede is in the field this week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard, as the two-time Palmer Cup participant was voted by his peers as most deserving of this year’s sponsor exemption.

    Three Pepperdine players finished in the top-10 at PGA West, and the Waves topped the Red Raiders for the team title. Mouw (Ranked 7th) was runner-up, while Derek Hitchner (Ranked 23rd) finished T5 and Sam Choi (Ranked 18th) tied for ninth.

    At the Watersound Invitational, Florida State junior Frederik Kjettrup won by five over Vanderbilt sophomore Gordon Sargent and Georgia Tech junior Christo Lamprecht. Vanderbilt placed three players in the top-10, and an eagle on the 17th hole by junior Cole Sherwood gave the Commodores a one-stroke victory over Georgia Tech.
