Freddie Jacobson fashioned a 2-under-par 33-35=68 during round two of the AT&T Byron Nelson, climbing to 8-under 132 through 36 holes.
The Swede was coasting in his round today, circling three birdies to offset one bogey before making the turn. That included a 63'1" hole out from off the green at the par-4 sixth hole. He swallowed his second bogey of the day at the par-3 14th, playing the par 3s at 2-over today. The big blemish of the round came at the closing par-4 18th, though, finding water on his approach shot leading to a double bogey. Through 36 holes, Jacobson currently ranks inside the top 30 in fairways hit as well as greens in regulation, so it's really been about fairways and greens as he finds himself just three back entering the weekend.

Freddie Jacobson closed out his round just before darkness hit, signing for a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the opening 18 holes of the AT&T Byron Nelson.

The Swede kick-started his round with a birdie at the par-4 10th hole but gave that stroke back two holes later after finding a greenside bunker and failing to get up-and-down. That would be his lone blemish of the round but his flat stick would really heat up from there. On the day, he rolled in six putts between 9-and-16 feet, gaining more than three strokes (putting) on the field. This will go in the books as Jacobson's career best at TPC Four Seasons Resort, posting nothing better than a 4-under 66 in his first 18 rounds.

Freddie Jacobson languished to a 4-over-par 40-36=76 in today's third round of the Valero Texas Open and at 4-over 220, will not have a Sunday tee time.

A total of 80 players made the 36-hole cut of even-par 144 so a second cut of low 70 and ties was required after 54 holes. Jacobson was one of 21 competitors that made the 36-hole cut on the number after opening his 10th Texas Open in 69-75. He circled a lonely birdie at the par-4 12th and squared three bogeys and a double bogey-7, marking the first time that the Swede will not complete 72 holes in the tournament. Joining him on the sidelines for Sunday's finale are: 218- Sponsor invite John Rollins; D.J. Trahan; Kelly Kraft; George McNeill; Johnson Wagner; Bronson Burgoon; John Huh and Chris Stroud.

Freddie Jacobson contests his 10th Valero Texas Open and checks into the JW Marriott TPC San Antonio ranked 42nd in the FedExCup standings.

Since the Valero switched to the AT&T Oaks Course in 2010, Jacobson is a perfect 6-for-6 and was runner-up 2010. He tacked on a T5 in 2011 and then three straight top 20s before T50 last year. One concern with the Swede is that five of his last six laps at TPC San Antonio have been over-par, one at even-par, lowlighted by a first-round 77 in the high winds last year. His current form has also cooled a bit of late, chasing consecutive T4s at the Farmers and AT&T Pebble Beach with a smattering of three missed cuts, a T26 and T46, and a somewhat disappointing T15 at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open where he was one of the headliners.
Apr 20 - 5:50 PM

Freddie Jacobson wrapped up his AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am with a 1-under-par 35-36=71 for a four-day total of 14-under 273, down one spot on the round but good for a two-way T4.

The Swede began the finale playing out of the penultimate pairing with 36-hole co-leader Sung Kang, who shot 77. He opened three adrift of 54-hole leader Phil Mickelson, but similar to Saturday's round, didn't make any headway up the leaderboard. The Swede striped 11 (of 14) fairways but mustered just 10 greens in regulation en route to a dismal -1.843 strokes gained: tee-to-green. On the two rounds of the week at Pebble Beach GL, he ranked first in the field in strokes gained: putting with a cumulative 7.074 mark. The 41-year-old, whose T4 is a personal best in his sixth AT&T, circled 21 birdies on the week to rank third in that stat, but only four on Sunday against three bogeys. It's his second straight top-five finish and third on eight starts in 2015-16.
Feb 14 - 8:18 PM

Freddie Jacobson patched together a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for a 54-hole aggregate of 13-under 202.

After opening in 7-under 65 (PB) and 3-under 69 (SH), Jacobson began Saturday's play in a three-way T3, one adrift of 36-hole co-leaders Sung Kang and Hiroshi Iwata. He couldn't make up any ground on the easiest of the three-course rota, outpacing three bogeys with six birdies at the par-71 Monterey Peninsula CC's Shore Course. The 41-year-old ended the day in the same position on the board (T3), but slipped to three back of 54-hole leader Phil Mickelson, who shot 66 (PB). He circled his six par breakers on just 12 greens in regulation for a tidy 1.500 putts per GIR, but after zero bogeys in R1, and one in R2, he dropped three on day three to temper the enthusiasm.
Feb 13 - 8:49 PM

Freddie Jacobson navigated Spyglass Hill Golf Club with a 3-under-par 34-35=69 during the second round of this week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Jacobson torched Pebble Beach Golf Links in his opening round, giving him a nice cushion as he faced a tough track today. The Swede launched out of a cannon with back-to-back birdies to open his second round and reach 9-under for the week. He traded a birdie at at the par-5 seventh with a bogey two holes later at the par-4 ninth. Making the turn at 2-under 34, Jacobson cruised home with eight pars and one more circle on the way in. It was impossible for him to maintain his torrid putting pace of round one, but he's in great position through 36 holes, sitting just one off the lead as he walked off the 18th green.
Feb 12 - 4:32 PM

Freddie Jacobson went low in his opening round at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, signing for a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

The Swede opened his week on the par-4 10th hole, where he scribbled down a par. That was the trend of the day for his first five holes before circling his first birdie at the par-4 15th hole as he splashed in a putt from 12'8". Jacobson added one more before making the turn at 2-under 34. He rattled home four putts from outside six feet on his back nine (nine total on the day), walking off the course with 4.04 strokes gained:putting next to his name. A great opening round for the Swede, but a cool down from the putter is almost a lock as he turns his attention to Spyglass Hill Golf Club in round two.
Feb 11 - 5:57 PM

Freddie Jacobson survived the two-day final round of the Farmers Insurance Open finishing up with a 4-over-par 38-38=76 and a 72-hole total of 3-under 285, good for a two-way tie for fourth.

Gamers will start taking notice after the Swede put up his second top-5 finish in his last three starts (solo fifth, RSM). It was also his personal best and first top-20 finish at the Farmers in nine appearances. The 41-year-old was 2-over thru 11 holes when play was suspended for the day on Sunday, one back of 72-hole clubhouse leader Brandt Snedeker and two adrift of the leader on the course Jimmy Walker (10 holes). When play resumed on Monday, he had already played two shots to the par-4 12th and he failed to save par from 37 yards short of the hole, squaring bogey. Jacobson bounced back with an up-and-down birdie at the par-5 13th and dropped shots on 15 and 17 for his final tally.
Feb 1 - 6:11 PM

Freddie Jacobson sleepwalked for most of his third round but rallied to post a 1-under-par 36-35=71 and a 54-hole total of 7-under 209, up two spots on the leaderboard and into a four-way tie for fifth.

Jacobson was limping along at 2-over thru 14 holes on Saturday before holing-out from 184 yards for eagle-2 at the 15th (video link below). He then nearly holed his second from the green side bunker at the par-3 16th, clanging off the flag stick and settling two inches from the cup. The 41-year-old capped his rally with a 13-footer for birdie at the par-5 18th, just his second circle of the day, the other coming 16 holes prior at the par-4 second. Thru 54 holes, he's T56 in the field with just nine birdies, but he's T9 in bogeys (six) and T1 in eagles with two.
Jan 30 - 8:21 PM

Freddie Jacobson cruised to a 3-under-par 35-34=69 while playing the North Course at Torrey Pines in the second round of the Farmers Insurance Open, reaching the midpoint at 6-under 138.

The Swede kicked off his round on the 10th tee and wasted no time, circling a birdie on his first. He ran into some trouble on the par-4 15th hole, but it was his lone bogey of the day. The highlight of the day came at the par-5 18th when he reached the green in two and splashed in an eagle putt. Jacobson arrived in 38th position on the FedExCup standings and is in great position to improve upon that number as he advances to the weekend.
Jan 29 - 4:57 PM

With a solo fifth-place finish at The RSM Classic, Freddie Jacobson met the terms of his Major Medical Extension with six starts to spare.

The Swede carded a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in today's finale to post 12-under 270. He circled four birdies, two of which from at least 11 feet. His longest was also the clincher to fulfill his medical as he walked off with a conversion from 25'1" at the par-4 18th hole. Jacobson suffered just one bogey today -- he had only four (and nothing worse) all week -- and averted two others with a pair of par saves ranging 10-11 feet. All told, he earned $228,000.00 to cover the financial angle of the MME by $29,759. His 110 FedExCup points collected was also 6.29 points more than necessary, but by achieving the objective with FedExCup points, the 41-year-old is now exempt into the 2016 PLAYERS. He'll play out of the No. 1 position in the MME category for the remainder of the season unless he wins a tournament for a promotion.

Freddie Jacobson chased his opening 65 at The RSM Classic with a 5-under-par 34-33=67 on the Plantation Course at Sea Island Resort, posting 10-under 132, good for early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Jacobson went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee on Seaside's sister course this morning and buried six birdies against one bogey, his only square of the week thus far. That's solid no matter what, but consider that he's missed nine greens in regulation thus far. He arrived in the Golden Isles with seven starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension. He can meet the terms this week via earnings with at worst a solo sixth. (Jacobson would need no worse than a two-way T5 with FedExCup points.) The moral of the story is that games should expect him to play out from under the MME sooner than later and ride him to the Playoffs.

Freddie Jacobson twirled a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-31=65 on the Seaside Course at Sea Island Resort in today's opening round of The RSM Classic.

This was vintage Jacobson today. He went 4-for-4 in scrambling and connected on all of his birdies from inside eight feet. His longest conversion dropped for par from 14'4" at the par-4 10th hole where he took a penalty after wayward drive. The Swede walked off situated just one stroke off the pace of the foursome of clubhouse leaders. He'll get his only look at the Plantation Course on Friday.

Freddie Jacobson settled for a 1-over-par 35-37=72 in his final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

He was one of the 27 golfers who had to return to El Camaleón this morning to complete the finale. Jacobson sat in a four-way share of sixth place when play was suspended on Sunday, but he drifted into an eight-way tie for 17th place at the conclusion of the tournament due to a double bogey at the par-4 14th hole and a bogey-4 at 15, the first two holes of his restart today. Still, this is his first top 25 since he finished T7 at the WM Phoenix Open on Feb. 1. The Swede earned $84,165.00 and 50.5 FedExCup points, so he'll head to The RSM Classic with seven starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to collect $198,241 or 103.71 FedExCup points and retain status. While those terms are easily within reach, it would be mildly surprising if he got the job done at Sea Island Resort this week. Jacobson missed the cut in his only two previous trips.
