Jacobson joins the leaders

By Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM

CROMWELL, Conn. -- Add Fredrik Jacobson’s name to the list of contenders. The Swede just moved to 12 under with a birdie on the seventh hole, giving him three birdies through his first seven holes.

Jacobson, who has yet to miss a fairway and has hit five of seven greens in regulation so far, was also in contention (well, for second anyway) last week at the U.S. Open, where he carded a third-round 66 before fading with a 73 to tie for 14th.

Still, the Swede has had some close calls -- most notably a runner-up at the 2008 AT&T National. He also tied for ninth at Bay Hill earlier this year.

While the scoring average remains low for the third round -- still more than two strokes under par -- the leaders haven’t exactly separated themselves from the pack. Amateur Patrick Cantlay is still 1 over through five holes, while Johnson Wagner is even par.
