Jones triumphs in Japan
Sunday, 29 July 2012
Australian Brendan Jones won the Sun Chlorella Classic in Japan by two shots on Sunday.
The 37-year-old fired a two-under 70 on the final day at the Otaru Country Club to finish ahead of Korean Seong-Ho Lee and Japanese pair Hideki Matsuyama and Yoshinobu Tsukada.
Jones hit three birdies and one bogey in his round and his composed effort was enough to hold off the chasing pack.
Tsukada was made to rue a one-over 73, while Matsuyama (69) and Lee (70) could not get on enough of a roll to put serious pressure on Jones.
The New South Welshman also won the event in 2003 and will take home over $365,000 for his troubles.
