With fall quickly upon us and thoughts of leaves changing and football taking over, the PGA Tour season is turning into high gear with the 2012 FedEx Cup Playoffs beginning this week at the Barclays played at the famed Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, NY.
As in the NFL where a record number of rookie quarterbacks are expected to start for their respective teams this season, the COBRA Team's own PGA Tour rookie Jonas Blixt is looking towards the autumn to make a name for himself on the national stage. His reward for a rock solid season? Landing a treasured spot in the playoffs!
Let's review some of his highlights from the 2012 season and take a peek inside his bag to see the tools applied to help him get the job done:
- (3) top 40s by the 1st of April while he got his footing under him on the world's premiere golf tour
- Snagged his first ever PGA Tour top 20 at Zurich Classic in April finishing strong with an impressive 67 on Sunday
- Had (3) straight top 10 finishes in the month of May including a T3 at the HP Byron Nelson where he put together a 67-66 on the weekend!
On the power of his ZL Encore (Black) and Baffler T-Rail hybrid, Jonas led the Tour in eagles made this year and will be relying heavily on those COBRA clubs as well as his S3 Pro MB irons as he looks to advance to the second round of the playoffs over Labor Day Weekend.
Jonas joins Rickie Fowler and Ian Poulter in making it a perfect 3 for 3 for COBRA's fully exempt PGA Tour Staff professionals in qualifying for the 2012 FedEx Cup Playoffs.
Good luck Guys!
