So Fredrik Jacobson seems to be having a good week, huh? The Odyssey Staff Pro clinched his first career PGA Tour victory at the Travelers Championship, fueled by a strong performance with his Black Series i #1 Putter. He drained a flurry of putts over the final two rounds and seemed to drop every makeable birdie attempt at TPC River Highlands. Jacobson finished T3 for the week in putting average, and he now ranks inside the top-10 in Strokes Gained Putting.
Jacobson jumped from 26th to 9th on the PGA Tour’s premier putting statistic after his victory. He’s gaining .628 putts per round over the field average this season with the same Black Series i #1 Model in his bag. Healthy putting has helped Jacobson during his great 2011 campaign, and he now sits in 18th place on the current FedExCup standings. He is one of four Odyssey users in the top-10 for Strokes Gained Putting, and the other three are ranked inside the top-5. Here is what these players are using in competition:
Strokes Gained Putting Statistic
2nd – White Hot XG Rossie Putter
4th – White Hot #2 Putter
5th – White Hot XG #7H Putter
9th (Fredrick Jacobson) – Black Series i #1 Putter
Jacobson has really separated himself from the pack on putts from inside 10 feet. He ranks second on the PGA Tour this year with a 90.1% success rate on putts from this range.
