FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 23, 2015
Colorado Springs, CO‐ Colorado based Pikes Peak Energy, LLC (“PPE”) is proud to announce a business partnership with longtime PGA Tour Player Freddie Jacobson. Freddie has been a mainstay on the PGA Tour since 2003. Over his career, he has achieved four professional wins across three continents. In 2014, Freddie tied for second at the Wyndham Championship, tied for third at Colonial, had seven top 25 finishes and played well into the FedEx Cup Playoffs.
The marriage of business ventures began with PPE drilling a well for Freddie and his group in the prolific East Texas Field, and moved to PPE’s participation with GolfBeer. The relationship blossomed as PPE partnered with Freddie to be a brand ambassador with a multi‐year term.
“I’m excited to partner with a professional like Freddie,” said Mark Ruybalid, President of PPE. “Aside from being a fantastic golfer, he is a seasoned businessman, and an even better person off the course.”
In addition to his work with PPE, Freddie has several business interests that transcend the golf course. In the spring of 2014, Freddie co‐founded Tru Table with decorated chef Scot Elmore. Tru Table is a specialty food company that transforms gourmet food to more effectively support active lifestyles. Their first product is a collection of protein‐enriched salad dressings and dips which can be found in Whole Foods Markets and a variety of upscale regional grocery chains. In the fall of 2014, GolfBeer Brewing Co., a company also co‐founded by Freddie, released its first line of easy‐drinking craft beers. Current
GolfBeer brands include Freddie Jacobson’s Scandinavian Style Blonde Ale, Graeme McDowell’s Celtic Style Pale Ale and Keegan Bradley’s New England Style Lager. The three beers are currently available at golf courses, resorts, sports bars and retail locations throughout the state of Florida.
Freddie’s life on and off the golf course, including his various business ventures will be featured on an upcoming episode of Inside the PGA Tour. The filming included hands on well work with Freddie on a PPE well in the East Texas Field.
“Over the last five years, I’ve been positioning myself for life after golf,” said Freddie. “Don’t get me wrong, I have a lot of good golf in front of me, but I have been looking for opportunities that can have profitability and longevity. My relationship with Pikes Peak Energy fits that mold. I was impressed with the team that they have in place and the opportunities they are developing. We have a lot of synergies.”
