Australian Golfer Matt Jones finishes at -12, earning $ 1.26 million for the PGA Tour event championship with a $ 7 million prize fund in Florida.
When Brandon Hagy finished second at -7, Jones led five strokes at the finish line. This is the furthest difference in the history of the tournament, similar to Jack Nicklaus in 1977, and then Camilo Villegas 33 years later.
Jones also impresses with his style of fast hitting, not paying attention to the pressure of the last ring. It took him less than five seconds to hit one shot.
With the victory at Honda Classic this period, Jones was crowned PGA Tour for the second time. At the first time – Houston Open 2014, Jones scored the birdie 72nd hole with a 13.7-meter strike, from there in the match against Matt Kuchar. Then he won with a chip into the hole directly, 40 yards away. From that title, Jones received the Masters competition and had only one day to prepare to leave because the exclusive major of the Augusta National Stadium started three days later. This time, Masters is up to three weeks away.
“I’ve been waiting for this for seven years. It’s a challenging career time,” Jones said when accepting the award yesterday. His voice was sometimes interrupted with emotion. For Jones, the Honda Classic was not as dramatic as the Houston Open seven years ago.
On the opening day of March 18, Jones hit 61 strokes – bare achievements in the Champion, Par70 golf course of the PGA National golf complex and also a record in 49 years of tournament history. But after 36 holes, the Australian golfer was three strokes less than Aaron Wise at the top of the table. Then with 54 holes, Jones returned to first place on a score of -10, leading Wise and JB Holmes three strokes.
Closing day, Jones and Holmes started the last turn from hole 1, and Wise went one hole ahead.
Wise rivaled Jones by scoring four birdies across six holes. Wise in that episode had a bogey, but the first half of the circle was just a stick from Jones.
Even so, Wise broke the match at hole 10, par4, from bunkering on the green and losing four shots. After the first putt, he was less than a meter from the hole, but it took three more shots to finish at triple bogey.
After the “tunnel collapse”, Jones led four sticks. Wise holds par for the next five holes. In the last three holes, he was completely sunk because of the double bogey-par-bogey closing. Wise finished T13 (point -4), received 125,400 USD.
Holmes’s door quickly closed due to the gap from three to eight in the first 45 minutes of the match, with bogey on the opening hole, double bogey in hole 2 while Jones two birdies in the same segment. Pegging 79 sticks, Holmes stood T46.
In the back half of the field, Jones added three birdies, two bogeys and then went up to the coronation podium. The whole leg, the player born in 1980 played an average of 314.9 yards, hit 11 of the 14 fairways and went to the green according to the standard of 17 holes.
Hagy got $ 763,000 for the runner-up position. The top 10 finally recorded two Asian representatives, CT Pan, standing on T3 and Im Sung-jae in T8. Last year, Im won at -6.
