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.
Feb 6 - 8:26 PM

Freddie Jacobson is listed in the published field of next week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

We still don't know what kind of injury that the Swede suffered that forced him to withdraw from last week's Farmers after an opening-round 81. He's comfortably positioned at 76th in FedExCup points, so there's no urgency to return sooner than later, and that makes his commitment next week even more promising. Jacobson tied for seventh on the Monterey Peninsula last year.
Jan 31 - 6:01 PM

Freddie Jacobson withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open after his opening round, citing an injury.

The news wasn't released until this morning, however. Jacobson shot a birdie-free, 9-over-par 39-42=81 at Torrey Pines South on Thursday. He hit only seven greens in regulation and squared nine bogeys. This drops him to 3-for-6 on the season but that slate included a pair of top 15s. If more information is available to explain his malady, we will relay it to you.

Freddie Jacobson is set to tee it up in his seventh Farmers Insurance Open this week.

The Swede has made the cut in five of his previous six tries at Torrey Pines, thrice cracking the top 25. This will be his sixth start of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season, finding successes with a T9 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and a T12 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. While he made the cut in the Humana Challenge, a 2-under-par 70 in the final round forced him to settle for a share of 76th in the birdie fest.
Jan 22 - 8:59 PM

After a slow end to the 2013 PGA TOUR season, Freddie Jacobson began his 2013-14 quest with a pair of high finishes.

Jacobson's T9 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open represented his first top 10 since the 2013 WGC-Accenture Match Play in February. He flanked success in Vegas with missed cuts, and then added a T12 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. What remains predictable is the flat stick. The baritone finished 2013 ranked 19th in strokes gained-putting, and is currently 22nd in the new season. Considering all three of his top 10s came in during the West Coast Swing last season, one can be optimistic and hope for solid returns early in 2014 as well.

Freddie Jacobson blitzed TPC Summerlin for a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and is the new clubhouse leader at 15-under 269.

This was a welcomed week for the Swede, as he hasn't secured a top 10 on the PGA TOUR since the WGC-Accenture Match Play and missed the cut last week at CordeValle Golf Club. His round featured seven birdies, including 16 GIR despite splitting just six (of 14) fairways. Sunday's finale was his second blemish-free round of the week, to go with his first round where he squared just one bogey. He gained strokes with the putter in each of his four rounds, including just over three on Sunday at the time of his posting.

Freddie Jacobson backed up his opening 67 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a bogey-free, 4-under-par 35-32=67 to reach the midpoint in 8-under 134, seven strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Swede went 4-for-4 in scrambling today, an effort highlighted by a par conversion from 11'6" at the par-4 fourth hole. He also wrangled four birdies, the most notable dropping in from 19'2" at No. 10.

Freddie Jacobson turned in a 4-under-par 35-32=67 for his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The Swede closed out a short week at CordeValle with a bogey-free 67 in the second round, but he fell one stroke too high of surviving the 36-hole cut. No worries; it's a new week in Vegas. He hit 16 greens in regulation at TPC Summerlin today and circled five birdies, including respective rolls from 22'2" and 11'4" a holes 17 and 6. While his only gaffe was rinsing his approach at the par-4 18th, which he bogeyed, he holed out for par from a greenside bunker 10 yards out at the par-3 eighth. Jacobson signed his card sitting four strokes off the early clubhouse lead.
