This past weekend while a large portion of the country was caught up in the leader board at the Masters in Augusta, the DLP crew kept on eye on a Swedish golfer who finished tied for 25th.
For Freddie Jacobson a score of two over par and a 25th place finish was good enough to take home a $56,000 purse.
We got to know Freddie during a Callaway shoot for a piece that originally aired on ESPN.

For most viewers Adam Scott (not this Adam Scott) becoming the first Aussie to win the Masters will be the most memorable part of the 2013 Masters. Adam won with a long putter (pictured below) and revived the long putter debate that has caused headaches for rule-makers (link to a piece about the long putter debate).
For some the two stroke penalty Tiger Woods incurred after a fan watching on TV literally called (phoned in) attention to officials about an illegal drop Tiger took to improve his lie will be what they most remember, especially after the ex-husband of Tiger's girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn, joked on Twitter that he was the fan that blew the whistle on Tiger.

While those other points are definitely memorable, the DLP office probably got the biggest kick out of Freddie Jacobson nearly acing the par-3 16th (below) during the final round of the Masters (Yahoo link).
