CROMWELL, Conn. -- Defending champion Fredrik Jacobson is off to a good start at 4 under through his first nine holes.
So far, Jacobson has missed just one fairway and one green on his way four birdies and no bogeys. (click here to follow his round).
The last (and only) player to successfully defend here? Phil Mickelson, who won in 2001-2002.
Jacobson, who is coming off a tie for 15th at the U.S. Open, said earlier the week he feels comfortable at TPC River Highlands. It sure looks like it.
