Jacobsen's distance of 133.5m was bettered by two jumpers - including third-best qualifier Tom Hilde - but his combination of excellent marks from the judges and high wind and gate compensation factors saw him top the table with 143.2 points..
"I'm really very satisfied with my jumps and my result", said Jacobsen.
Gregor Schlierenzauer, who had already pre-qualified for Sunday's competition, produced the highest score in the qualifying tournament with 149.6 points.
