FOND DU LAC, Wis. -- Brothers Paul and Rob Jacobsen, a UW-Madison golfer, won the 2013 Wisconsin State Golf Association Bestball Tournament June 2 at Rolling Meadows Golf Club in Fond du lac, Wis.
The duo from Racine Country Club defeated Kenny Rucker of Hawks Landing Golf Club and Andrew Cobb of Maple Bluff Country Club, 4&2, to win their second WSGA Bestball (Four-Ball) Championship. Paul won the event in 2010 with Greg Romano, and Rob won the event the following year with current Badger junior John Gullberg.
The Jacobsens fell behind early, losing the first to holes of the match, but took the lead after winning the next three holes. The team would not lose a hole the rest of the match, closing it out with a chip-in birdie on the par 4 16th hole.
Rob, a redshirt sophomore, played in six tournaments for the Badgers this past year averaging 78.26 strokes per round. He is a three-year letterwinner for the Badgers and is coming off a medical redshirt from his sophomore season.
