SYDNEY (AP) Matt Jones talked about the "stress and anxious moments" during his final round at the Australian Open on Sunday.

He wasn't exaggerating.

Jones overcame a bogey, double-bogey and triple-bogey on the front nine Sunday to escape with a one-stroke victory in the 100th Australian Open after shooting a 2-over 73. Jones, who led defending champion Jordan Spieth by three strokes to begin the day, finished with a 72-hole total of 8-under 276.

New stars to give Kapalua strong field

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) The start of a new year on the PGA Tour at Kapalua lost some sizzle when Tiger Woods stopped going after 2005, which was four years after Phil Mickelson decided to go to Hawaii only for a vacation.

And when the PGA Tour went to a wraparound season two years ago, the Hyundai Tournament of Champions was in an awkward spot. Yes, it was the first event of the year, but the season had started three months earlier. Read More...

SYDNEY (AP) Jordan Spieth and Adam Scott, the two headliners at this week's Australian Open, have distinctly different excitement levels over next year's Rio Olympics golf tournament.

While both agree a team competition would have been nice, Scott says he'll go if he can fit it into his schedule, and isn't very enthused. On Tuesday, however, Spieth said count him in unless he's injured or, by some miracle, the world's top-ranked golfer fails to qualify. Read More...
