Stephan Jaeger just continues to churn out solid results.

The German comes to the Fortinet Championship on a streak of 13 straight made cuts dating back to April. Nine of those resulted in a top-30.

His streak is the fourth longest active on the PGA Tour.

Jaeger hasn’t quite been able to contend for his first career PGA Tour title, but his consistency is something to marvel.

The 34-year-old knows how to go low. He once shot a 58 en route to a victory on the Korn Ferry Tour. Last season in the big leagues, Jaeger was second in total birdies with 424.

The East Tennessee State Alum also ranked seventh in strokes gained per round around-the-green (.39). Jaeger was in the positive in all SG categories and finished 28th in total SG (.833). It’s just a matter if the putter wants to cooperate.

This will be his fifth appearance at the Fortinet Championship.

He’s made half his cuts in Napa, including last year when Jaeger earned T-43rd (69-70-73-71). He also took T-30th (70-72-72-69) in 2017.

His short game was its usual self last year at Silverado where he ranked eighth in the field in total SG around-the-green (3.252). Jaeger made 17 birdies on the week but 10 bogeys are much too many to contend at this event.

Jaeger’s best career finish in a PGA Tour event is solo fifth at the 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic. I don’t quite see him eclipsing that mark, but he’ll have a good shot come Sunday afternoon.
