Freddie Jacobson arrives at this week's RBC Heritage ranked 147th in the FedExCup standings.
Jacobson is a little lower than usual on the FEC leaderboard, as he's finished inside the top 105 every year since the inaugural FEC. There is still plenty of time for the Swede to go streaking for a month or two like he typically does once a season. His lone top 30 of the season came back in February at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Jacobson will be off the radar for most gamers this week, but his excellent short game makes him a nice sleeper at Harbour Town Golf Links. Apr 14 - 11:39 AM

Freddie Jacobson is scheduled to compete in this week's Valspar Championship.

After touching a career-high 27 starts last season, Jacobson is scaling back in 2014-15. His commitment at Copperhead is just his sixth. He played once in the fall are currently ranks 147th in FedExCup points. This will be his third appearance in the Valspar. En route to a T20 last year, he led the field in par-4 scoring (3.88). The 40-year-old has one victory in 263 career starts.

Freddie Jacobson has been removed from the published field of this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

He's popped in and out of this field with mixed results over the years, so we'll reserve the thought of raising a flag today. After placing T7 in Arizona two weeks ago, the Swede tied for 32nd at Torrey Pines. At 108th in the FedExCup standings, he's comfortably projected for a solid season.
Feb 9 - 10:16 AM

Freddie Jacobson submitted a 5-under-par 32-35=67 for his opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines North.

The Swede withdrew from this tournament last year with an unspecified injury after a first-round 81. He posted top 25s in his previous two trips and was springing off a T7 at last week's WM Phoenix Open, so expectations were elevated beginning today. He fulfilled them, burying seven birdies against two bogeys to land three strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead. Torrey South awaits in the second round.
Feb 5 - 7:52 PM

Freddie Jacobson lit up TPC Scottsdale for a bogey-free 7-under-par 30-34=64 in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and is the first man in at 11-under 273.

Simply put, the Swede putted the lights out. His seven birdies fell from 34'10", 60'11", 19'4", 2'1", 21'2", 13'3" and 9'10" on holes 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10 and 15. When a player lands 15 GIR and gains over five strokes with the flat stick, the results are generally pretty special. This follows a missed cut in the Humana Challenge, but it now appears that all systems are a go moving forward.
Feb 1 - 3:58 PM

Freddie Jacobson finished in a share of 62th at his 2014-15 warmup event and now turns his attention to the Humana Challenge.

Jacobson opted for rest after finishing T53 at the 2014 BMW Championship. His return to action was unimpressive but also a good sign that his health is strong. The Swede is a perfect 5-for-5 at the Humana with just one round over-par. Gamers looking for an off-the-radar sleeper will want to look no further.
Jan 21 - 8:45 PM

Freddie Jacobson saw limited PGA TOUR action over the fall, teeing it up just once and reaching the holiday break ranked 191st in the FedExCup standings.

The Swede has made the Playoffs every year, and finished 81st or better in seven of those eight seasons. No reason for gamers to panic at this point because a healthy Jacobson is more than capable of rattling off some top-heavy finishes. Gamers should continue to fire him up in daily fantasy leagues because his 69-for-89 record since 2011 is quite valuable.

Freddie Jacobson kicks of his 2014-15 PGA TOUR campaign in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

He was scheduled to compete in the Sanderson Farms Championship last week, but was removed from the field. This marks his first action since the BMW Championship, where he tied for 53rd. In three previous trips to El Camaleón GC, he has secured two top 20s and missed one cut.

Freddie Jacobson has been removed from the published field of this week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

Jacobson has made news lately to bringing to selective markets a craft beer, but he hasn't played competitively anywhere since the BMW Championship. The Swede has battled a number of injuries in recent years, and he turned 40 in September, so expectations must be tempered whenever he returns to the PGA TOUR.

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.

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.
