Major debutant Ludvig Aberg chasing history at the Masters

In his first-ever major championship, Sweden's Ludvig Aberg is just three shots off the pace heading into the final round of the Masters.

Aberg is making his major championship debut at Augusta National after only turning professional in June, but went into the last 18 holes just three shots off the lead held by world number one Scottie Scheffler.

No player has won the Masters in their first major start, while Fuzzy Zoeller was the last player to win a green jacket on their tournament debut in 1979.

"I think about it all the time. I'm OK thinking about it," Aberg said after a third round of 70.

"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 okay with all that comes with it, I guess."

Scheffler birdied the 18th in round three to claim a one-shot lead over Collin Morikawa, who would just be a US Open victory away from completing a career grand slam if he triumphs on Sunday.

Max Homa was two shots off the pace following a 73 containing 17 pars and one bogey, with Aberg another stroke back and Bryson DeChambeau four off the lead after a remarkable birdie on the last.
