Name the Player at the PGA Championship

UPDATE: OK, this one must be pretty hard. I’ve added a photo of the same player below, which isn’t cropped. (I slightly cropped the above photo.) See if this helps you with your guesses. If not, I’ll start dropping hints.

WELCOME TO ANOTHER EDITION of “Name the Player.” I think this might be an easy one, at least for some of you. Take a look at the above tour pro in mid swing at the 2008 PGA Championship at Oakland Hills. Does he look familiar? Anyone recognize him?

No hints. Who do you think it is?

This one is really hard.The only person I can think of that might be a possibility is Ben Crane.

I've updated the post to include another photo of the player. See if it helps.

OK; I want to say Appleby; but I've seen him in person and that first photo doesn't look like him and his hair is blonder. Obviously, he likes the 5:00 shadow; represented by Kraft and Callaway. I give up! Tell me!

From that second angle is does look a bit like Appleby, but I don't think he signed for Callaway 'till 09?Think he was with Bridgestone back in 08.Looked up the Callaway players for 08 and going by the facial hair I'm gonna say Fredrik Jacobson.

Got it. It's Fredrik Jacobson.
