Jobe will switch to belly putter after rough stretch

Coming into this week’s Deutsche Bank Championship, Brandt Jobe stood at No. 56 on the FedEx Cup points list.

A solid run that included a runner-up finish at the Memorial and a T-23 at the U.S. Open vaulted him up the points list, but two missed cuts (including last week’s Barclays) since the U.S. Open have made Jobe a bit desparate.

Jobe made the cut in Boston on the number (1 over), recording 30 putts in each round. He had three 3-putts on Saturday. He will be switching to a belly putter on Sunday, something he used earlier in his career.

“I have nothing to lose and everything to gain,” Jobe said of using a belly putter in Sunday’s third round. Jobe currently sits at 67th in the points standings, a virtual lock to move on to the BMW Championship next week. “I want to have some fun.”

Jobe used a belly putter earlier in his career, but it was friend and practice-round partner J.J. Henry that walked him through the nuances over the last week and Jobe is going to give it a try.
