Freddie Jacobson enters the BMW Championship ranked 63rd in the FedExCup standings.
It's been a solid year for the Swede, racking up 10 top 25s and two top-three finishes, but he is now in danger of not making it to East Lake for the TOUR Championship. His first two Playoff events have not gone well, missing the cut at The Barclays and finishing alone in 79th at the Deutsche Bank Championship. Perhaps he can conjure up another top-three finish and live to fight another week. Sep 3 - 9:33 PM

Freddie Jacobson tied for second at the Wyndham Championship with a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round, ending one-stroke behind Camilo Villegas at 16-under 264.

The Swede holed three birdies and an eagle, with three longer than 12 feet, in his final lap around Sedgefield CC and stood on the tee at the par-4 18th with a share of the lead. He found the fairway and his second shot was tracking towards the pin until it came up just short of the green. He chose the putter, but blew the birdie bid from 24 yards 10'3" past the cup, and then missed it coming back. It was a heartbreaking way for him to come up just shy of his second PGA TOUR title.

Freddie Jacobson settled for a 4-under-par 31-35-66 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship and trails Brad Fritsch by a stroke at 12-under 198.

The Swede rattled off a streak of four consecutive birdies early in his round at Sedgefield CC, beginning at the par-3 third hole. His first three ranged from 8'6" and 10'1", but his 28'6" birdie on the sixth took the cake. He slowed his pace late, trading a birdie for a bogey on the back nine. His lone PGA TOUR victory came at the 2011 Travelers Championship, and he stands an excellent chance to add to that on Sunday.

Freddie Jacobson enjoyed a 6-under-par 34-30=64 in his second round of the Wyndham Championship.

Jacobson is headed to the FedExCup Playoffs for the eighth time in as many tries, but he's advanced to the TOUR Championship only once (2011). Form like today's will get him there again. He converted on eight of 14 birdie possibilities at Sedgefield Country Club today, including five on a bogey-free inward side. His longest of the day stretched 32'8" at the par-4 second hole. Another notable birdie dropped in from 16'1" at 10. Currently 8-under 132, the Swede sits only two strokes back of the overnight co-leaders.

Freddie Jacobson is back in action at the PGA Championship for the first time since missing the cut at The Open Championship last month.

He was on a decent roll before that hiccup at Hoylake, so it's tough to gauge what a two-week hiatus will mean for his chances at Valhalla. The Junkman is not exactly known for his skill off the tee, rather his ability to score and scramble from tough situations. It's likely that he will find Valhalla to be the exact opposite to the type of course where he traditionally excels, so keep the investments to a minimum.

Freddie Jacobson's colorful scorecard added up to an even-par 32-39=71 in the third round of the Quicken Loans National and he shares the clubhouse lead with Seung-yul Noh at 4-under 210.

The Swede raced up the leaderboard early in the round with four birdies on the front nine, three falling from between 24 and 30 feet, but the back nine at Congressional was a different story. He splashed his tee shot at the par-3 10th, but still managed to save bogey. He would then square a double bogey at the 11th and bogeys at 13 and 16 while adding a birdie from 11'3" at the par-4 14th. As the length of some of his birdies would suggest, he gained over four strokes with the putter for the round and is second in the field in strokes gained for the week. It's a testament to the overall difficultly of the golf course that a back-nine 39 is still good enough for a clubhouse lead. He trailed Patrick Reed by two strokes in real time when he posted.

Freddie Jacobson chased his opening 67 at the Quicken Loans National with an even-par 35-36=71 in his second round to post 4-under 138 at the midpoint, good for a share of the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Jacobson hit 14 greens in regulation at Congressional today, but squared three bogeys, including a three-putt from just inside 33 feet at the par-4 fourth hole. He offset with three birdies, the longest measuring 13'6" at the par-3 13th.

Freddie Jacobson crafted a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Quicken Loans National, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

The Swede has been reliable ever since the PGA TOUR made its annual migration to Florida in March. So, it would be surprising if he didn't maintain form. Indeed, he picked off six birdies at Congressional today, including four on his last seven holes. The set included conventional conversions from 21'9" and 23'7" at Nos. 17 and 3, respectively, but the highlight dropped in from 15 yards out and in front of the green at the par-4 fourth.
Jun 26 - 5:14 PM

Freddie Jacobson carded a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Jacobson has been peppering leaderboards since the PGA TOUR's Florida Swing began. The run has yielded six top 20s in 10 starts. Therefore, he's kind of expected to keep the pedal down at TPC Southwind where he's making his 12th consecutive appearance. Jacobson went 5-for-6 in scrambling with a bogey-5 at the 13th hole while picking off four birdies. The gem of the bunch was his last, from 20'8" at the par-4 seventh hole, but his longest conversion of the round measured 22'2" for par at the par-4 fifth.
Jun 5 - 1:29 PM

Freddie Jacobson signed for a 3-under-par 36-31=67 in the final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial to end his tournament at 8-under 272.

The Swede swallowed two bogeys to just one birdie on the front nine at Colonial Country Club, but caught fire with four birdies and five pars on the back. His longest birdie effort was from 13'8" on the par-4 14th, with the remainder all falling from inside 10 feet. He nearly holed out from off the green on the 18th from 51'6" to join Jason Dufner in the clubhouse, but came up just short. This will easily go for a top-five finish.
May 25 - 4:42 PM

Freddie Jacobson turned in a 3-under-par 34-33=67 for his opening round of the Crown Plaza Invitational at Colonial, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

The Swede split 11 (of 14) fairways but hit only 11 greens in regulation and squared one bogey and a double. However, he rallied for six birdies, including conversions from 27'5", 38'3" and 13'8" at the 10th, 15th and third holes, respectively. This matches his lowest aggregate in a lid-lifter all season.
May 22 - 6:12 PM

Freddie Jacobson is looking to continue his hot play this week at THE PLAYERS.

On a course that rewards good scramblers, the Junkman should thrive at TPC Sawgrass. Throw in his recent form of six straight top 30s and Jacobson should be a very solid play for gamers this week.

Freddie Jacobson has been removed from the published field of this week's RBC Heritage.

This will extend his break to two weeks after not qualifying for the Masters. Since the PGA TOUR's Florida Swing started, each of his five starts resulted in a top 20. The Swede is currently 56th in FedExCup points.

Freddie Jacobson followed his opening 70 at the Valero Texas Open with another in his second round.

Jacobson turned in respective nines of 36 and 34, achieving the former with nothing but pars. He bogeyed the par-4 10th, but bounced back with a birdie conversion from 55'10" at the par-4 11th. A ho-hum eagle from 6'1" at the par-5 14th trailed before he exchanged a bogey and birdie coming in. At 4-under 140, he's four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Freddie Jacobson enjoyed a 2-under-par 35-35=70 for his opening round of the Valero Texas Open, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

The Swede landed only 10 greens in regulation but limited the damage to one bogey (at the par-4 fourth hole). Elsewhere he circled three birdies, including rolls from 12'11" and 13'3" at the 11th and seventh holes, respectively. Each of his 18 conversions occurred inside 15 feet. That success laid the foundation for a strokes gained-putting split north of 2.210 when he walked off. Jacobson has finished no worse than T18 in all four editions of the VTO at TPC San Antonio.
