Jones excelled as an amateur, winning the Australian Amateur title in 1999 (beating Kiwi Mahal Pearce in the final). He also represented Australia in the team that finished 2nd in the 1998 Eisenhower Trophy.The popular Australian turned Pro in 1999 and has won an incredible 15 times on the Japan Tour, including one victory in 2019 at the Token Homemate Cup in Nagoya.

Jones fell in love with Queenstown when first playing here several years ago and not only has he returned every year since, he has been one of the event’s greatest supporters and promoters in his position as the leading foreign golfer in the history of the Japan Tour. Jones has won fifteen titles on the Japan Tour and over $NZ15 million there since first joining the tour in 2001. Jones is a player good enough to have played on the PGA Tour during the mid-2000’s but enjoys the chance to commute from his home in Canberra to Japan to compete there, making the decision to focus his attention in Japan after a successful season on the Web.Com Tour (2005) followed by a year on the PGA Tour in 2006. Jones’ record at the New Zealand Open has not been as good as his international record suggests it might be, but he has still recorded several very low rounds at both The Hills and Millbrook and he will take his place in the field as very much a player to watch
