Freddie Jacobson Sets Record at RBC Heritage

On January 23rd, and during the second round of the Humana Challenge, Freddie Jacobson three-putted the 16th hole. Since then, the Patriots have won another Super Bowl, Tiger Woods came back, left, and then came back again, oh and Jacobson hasn't had another three-putt.

In the second round of this past week's RBC Heritage, the Hobe Sound resident broke Luke Donald's record of 483 consecutive holes without a three putt. He didn't stop there though. He went all four rounds without a three putt and heading into his next event his total is at 524. Jacobson is first in three-putt avoidance at .65 percent (the tour average this season is three percent) and he's third in strokes gained/putting.

Jacobson will look to extend his record this week when he tees it up at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Should he go all 72 holes without a three putt, his total would go to 596.
