World No. 789 Freddie Jacobson is on a Major Medical Extension with 18 starts to earn 333.130 FedExCup points to retain status.
After finishing 90th in the FedExCup standings in 2015-16, Jacobson had surgery on his left thumb to repair a torn ligament in October, 2016. He had put off the surgery for an injury that actually took place in 2011. Post surgery, the Hobe Sound, Florida, resident returned four months later to a MC at The Honda Classic, but only mustered eight more starts before shutting it down in mid-May after a MC at the Byron Nelson and hasn't played anywhere since. The 43-year-old is a one-time TOUR winner in 307 career events (2011 Travelers) and has recorded just four top 10s in his last 45 starts. He also missed significant time in 2015 after his then-7-year-old son was diagnosed with a heart defect and subsequently had open-heart surgery. Sun, Dec 17, 2017 08:56:00 PM

World No. 249 Freddie Jacobson returns for his 11th Valero Texas Open and arrives at 231st in the FedExCup standings.

The 42-year-old was 100th in OWGR this same time last April and posted an 80/MDF (69-75-76), last of those that made the 36-hole cut. He ended the season 90th in the FEC standings, exiting the Playoffs with missed cuts at The Barclays and Deutsche Bank, and the following month, had surgery on his left thumb. Twenty-five weeks later, the transplanted Floridian kicked off the 2016-17 season with a MC at the Honda, MCd the Valspar, posted a T56 in Puerto Rico, and MCd the Shell and the Heritage. The good news, he's 10-for-10 at the Texas Open with seven top 25s, eight of those consecutive, highlighted by solo 2nd in 2010, the first edition at the current venue.

In his first start since thumb surgery in October, World No. 213 Freddie Jacobson missed the cut at The Honda Classic by nine shots.

The 42-year-old carded rounds of 78-71 as he dusted the rust off, posting fairways and greens in regulation numbers of 39.29 percent (11/28) and 50.00 percent (18/36), respectively. He circled seven birdies versus eight bogeys and four doubles. Last season, the long-time Florida resident finished 90th in the FedExCup standings, last seen exited the Playoffs with a MC at the Deutsche Bank 25 weeks ago. His surgery was to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb.

World No. 178 Freddie Jacobson went 18-for-26 last season with six top-25 finishes, three for top 10s.

The Swede entered the Playoffs 67th in the FedExCup standings and eventually finished 90th after missed cuts at The Barclays and Deutsche Bank. His three top 10s all doubled as top 5s and were highlighted by back-to-back T4s at the Farmers and AT&T Pebble Beach. In 18 starts post-Pebble, the transplanted Floridian did not record another top 10 but did post two top 15s, most recently a T12 at the FedEx St. Jude back in June. Of the 125 players who qualified for the Playoffs last season, only three have not played an event (official or unofficial) since the conclusion (or having been eliminated): Ryan Palmer, Andrew Loupe and Jacobson.

Freddie Jacobson is at TPC Boston for the Deutsche Bank Championship and slots in at 81st in the FedExCup standings.

The 41-year-old is 6-for-7 at the DBC (in the FEC era) but has just one finish inside the top 30, a T9 in 2007. This is his first appearance since a T80/MDF in 2014 (72-72-80). The Swede is 18-for-25 in 2015-16 with six top 25s, three for top 10s, all doubling as top 5s. He began the season on a Major Medical Extension and met the terms after solo fifth at The RSM (with six starts to spare). Jacobson recorded back-to-back T4s at the Farmers and the AT&T Pebble Beach, but hasn't revisited the top 10 in his last 17 events. He enters off a T33 at the Wyndham, where he closed in 6-under 64, and a missed cut (by two) at The Barclays (72-75).

Past champ Freddie Jacobson returns for his eighth playing of the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands and enters with six top 25s this season in 22 starts, 66th in the FedExCup standings.

The 41-year-old won the 2011 edition on 20-under 260 (65-66-63-66). It remains his lone TOUR title in 294 career starts. The Swede has competed three times since the break through, posting all 12 rounds at par or better, nine of those red. He's coming off T73 at the PGA Championship, his first action in seven weeks (T12, FedEx St. Jude Classic). Jacobson has three top 10s, most recently T4 at Pebble Beach in mid-February.

Freddie Jacobson orchestrated a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in today's final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to conclude his 13th appearance on 5-under 275, up eight places to T10 with play still in progress.

The 41-year-old's best of three top 10s at TPC Southwind is T3 in 2003, so he's not going to scare that but he's on the cusp of adding a fourth. He began the finale on 2-under (T18) after opening in 72-66-70, three shy of the overnight top 10. The Swede found just five (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation, but posted a sterling 1.444 putts per GIR. He circled five the conventional way, three from greater than 12 feet with a long of 30'8" at the par-3 fourth, and added a 27'3" zero-putt version from off the green at the 13th. Jacobson's blemishes were bogey-4 at the 14th and double bogey-6 at the seventh. If the top 10 holds, it'll be his fourth of the season in 21 starts and first since a season-best T4 at Pebble Beach.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
