Canberra’s Brendan Jones has finished 7th the Mynavi ABC Championship in Hyogo Prefecture, an eagle at the last hole by the 44-year old improving him from 19th overnight to finish six shots behind the winner, Jung Gon Hwang or Korea.
Jones is in 12th place on the 2019 Japan Tour money list with A$650,000, much of that coming when winning the opening domestic event on the Japan Tour season, the Token Homemate Cup.
Jones’ fellow Australian, David Bransdon, recorded one of his better finishes of the season when he, too, eagled his final hole for a round of 68 to finish tied for 13th.
Sydney raised, Won Joon Lee, finished 22nd, Japan Tour rookie, Dylan Perry, was 42nd while New Zealander Mike Hendry was 32nd.
For the winner, Hwang, it was his 4th Japan Tour title although his first for nearly four years.
