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.

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.
May 7 - 11:22 AM

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.
Apr 14 - 10:39 AM

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.
Mar 28 - 7:56 PM

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.
Mar 27 - 4:18 PM

Freddie Jacobson turned in a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, dropping to 6-under 282 for the week.

The Swede was making a charge towards the top five with three birdies to just one bogey over his first 13 holes, but stumbled to the finish with three bogeys over his final five holes. He also failed to take advantage of the easy par-5 16th. This will go in the books as his third consecutive top-20 finish, and very likely a top 10.
Mar 23 - 5:35 PM

Freddie Jacobson posted a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Swede hasn't exactly threatened the top of the leaderboard this week, but his 7-under 209 through 54 holes has him inside the top 10. Jacobson circled three birdies to just one bogey on what proved to be a relatively stress-free afternoon. He entered this week off back-to-back top 20s but does not have a top 10 in 2014. He did tie for ninth at TPC Summerlin in the 2013 portion of the current season.
Mar 22 - 5:40 PM

Freddie Jacobson turned in a 4-under-par 33-35=68 for his second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Swede hit 13 greens in regulation and buried six birdies, five of which from at least 10 feet from the cup. His most notables conversions measured 22 feet at the par-3 seventh hole and 23 feet at the par-4 13th. Jacobson squared two bogeys, including a three-putt from just outside 35 feet at the par-4 10th, but he went on to sign his card sitting 5-under 139 at the midpoint, two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. He's gunning for his third consecutive top 20.
Mar 21 - 12:38 PM

Freddie Jacobson bounced back from a rough front nine for a third-round 1-under-par 38-32=70 at the Valspar Championship.

The Swede was birdie-free on the opening nine of the Copperhead Course, alternating two bogeys with six pars. Things changed dramatically in his favor on the inward nine, finding birdies from 18'4" on the par-4 10th, 8'1" on the par-5 14th and 5'2" on the difficult par-4 18th. He enters the finale at 2-under 211.
Mar 15 - 5:15 PM

Freddie Jacobson returned to action today at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am with a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in his opening round at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course.

This is exactly the kind of turnaround that eliminates the doubt that enveloped his withdrawal after an opening 81 at Torrey Pines two weeks ago. Today he split 10 (of 13) fairways and missed only one green in regulation. After opening with a bogey-5 at No. 1, he rallied for four birdies against no bogeys. He'll slide over to the host course for Friday's second round.
