    CROMWELL, Conn. — Defending champion Fredrik Jacobson is in a familiar spot at the Travelers Championship.
    For the second straight year, Jacobson had a 9-under 131 total for 36 holes, following his opening 65 with a 66 on Friday. And for the second consecutive year, bad weather pushed back the completion of the second round to today.
    The Swede wouldn't mind if history kept repeating itself.
    He's trying to join Phil Mickelson, the 2001 and 2002 winner, as the only players to successfully defend a title at River Highlands.
    Jacobson played before the rain hit the course. He started on the back nine and followed up two birdies with an eagle on the 13th hole. He hit his second shot 240 yards over the water and onto the green, and made a 40-foot putt on the par 5.
    Former Georgia Southern golfer Blake Adams had a 64, the best round of the day, to join Stuart Appleby and Roland Thatcher at 7 under. Appleby had a 65, and Thatcher shot a 67.
    Adams had five birdies on the back nine.
    "I think I finally woke up," said Adams, who bogeyed the final two in the first round for a 69. "I was just kind of making some silly bogeys all day yesterday and early this morning, and I finally got rid of those silly errors and made some birdies."
