Golf News

Sydney, Australia. Matt Jones held off charges by Adam Scott and defending champion Jordan Spieth to win the 100th Australian Open.

Jones, who posted an 8-under-par 276 victory total at his home course, The Australian Golf Club, finished one shot clear of the runners-up.

Scott, who trailed Jones by nine shots to start the day, was in hot pursuit with a closing 6-under-par 65, while Spieth shot a final round even-par 71, just missing an eagle putt on the final hole to force a playoff.

“I’m sure I can take confidence out of going head to head and coming out on top with those two (Scott and Spieth),” Jones said. “It’s something I can use down the road. I’m just happy to come out on top.”
