CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) — Fredrik Jacobson closed out his first PGA Tour title, shooting a 4-under 66 in the Travelers Championship for a one-stroke victory over John Rollins and Ryan Moore.

Jacobson, a 36-year-old Swede who joined the tour eight years ago and has three European Tour victories, had just one bogey in the tournament and finished at 20 under — two shots off the course record.

Jacobson hit all 28 fairways over the weekend.
