Professional golfer

Fredrik Jacobson, Swedish professional golfer. Achievements include winning Volvo Masters Andalucia, 2003, Algarve Open Portugal, 2003, Omega Hong Kong Open, 2003.

Background

Jacobson, Fredrik was born on September 26, 1974 in Kungsbacka, Sweden.

Career

In 2004, he joined the PGA Tour. In 2003 Jacobson was the top scorer in the Seve Trophy, collecting four and a half points out of five. In 2004 he just missed out on a Ryder Cup place, finishing one place short in both the European Tour rankings and the world ranking points rankings, and not being selected as a captain's pick.

He beat Ryan Moore, who missed a short four footer at the 72nd hole which would have gotten him into a playoff with Jacobson, but instead settled for a tie with John Rollins one shot behind. During the week, Jacobson went 63 holes bogey-free until the difficult par four 10th on Sunday where he made a bogey five. He hit 100% of the fairways during rounds three and four.

In November 2011, Jacobson had his best finish ever in a World Golf Championship event when he finished solo 2nd at the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai, China. Jacobson had led the tournament after rounds two and three and entered the final round with a two stroke advantage over Louis Oosthuizen. However it was a final round surge from Martin Kaymer that denied Jacobson, the German firing nine birdies on the day to post a 63.

Jacobson could only record a 71 to fall short by three strokes. He then missed a short birdie putt at the 17th to take the outright lead. On the 72nd hole, Jacobson missed a five-foot par putt, which left him one shot outside of the playoff.

Jacobson has been featured in the top 20 of the Official World Golf Rankings. The procedure was successful, and Max is recovering quite well. The PGA Tour granted Jacobson a medical extension under the family crisis provision.

Jacobson fulfilled his medical extension with a fifth place finish at the RSM Classic. 1992 Swedish Boys Championship, Doug Sanders Championship, Euro Junior Masters PGA Tour wins (1) European Tour wins (3) DNP = Did not play CUT = missed the half-way cut "T" = tied Yellow background for top-10.
