Aussies On Tour: Sep 16

Sep 16 AOT matt jones

The return of the PGA Tour China was profitable for a quartet of Australians on the weekend, with young gun James Marchesani leading the way with a T3 finish, his best result on any tour in more than two years.

Fellow #GoldenEra representatives Jake McLeod and Harrison Endycott made the weekend on the European Tour in the Netherlands, with Wollongong's Travis Smyth joining Daniel Fox in a share of 21st on the Asian Tour.

But just like that the US PGA Tour season is back and our #AussieOfTheWeek comes from the Greenbrier.

Cam Smith ramped up his Presidents Cup preparations with a T24 finish in West Virginia but it was Matt Jones who led the way.

The Sydneysider cracked the top 10 on the standings on the back of a brilliantly consistent week, Jones recording just five bogeys and a double against a massive 17 birdies and an eagle.

So as Jones gets ready to defend his 2017 #AusOpenGolf title at his home club of The Australian, we crown him our latest #AussieOfTheWeek!
