Jones comes through late scare to win second Australian Open

Casey admitted being & # 39 flat & # 39 on the third day

Ieremia closed with back-to-back even-par rounds of 71 to finish the Australian Open tied for fifth on eight-under, seven shots behind local victor Matt Jones.

Jones became a dual victor of the tournament after holding on for a one-stroke victory following his final-round 69 at The Australian Golf Club.

Cruising for most of the final round and a leader after the second and third, Matt Jones suddenly needed to make a big putt on his final hole for a second Australian Open title.

South African Oosthuizen, one of six players from the global team who came to Sydney to warm-up for next week's Presidents Cup, mixed three birdies with one bogey in a solid round.

Four years ago, Jones won by a shot from Adam Scott, who missed the cut this year, and American Jordan Spieth, who at the time was one of the best players in the world.

"I think coming on the back nine I just wanted to try and get some numbers up there so that he's (Jones) a little bit under pressure, but he did really well", said Oosthuizen, adding that he took a lot of confidence out of his performance.

Victory also earned Jones a British Open start next year at Royal St George's, where Greg Norman won the Claret Jug in 1993 for a second time.

South African Oosthuizen, using the tournament to warm up for next week's Presidents Cup in Melbourne, shot a 66 for second place with local Aaron Pike and Japanese amateur Takumi Kanaya in third place a further five shots back on nine-under.

On his home course, Matt Jones held his nerve to win a second Australian Open.

"No, I didn't, but happy to be going there, " he said.

"It's incredible, if there is one Major I would like to win it is this one", Jones said. "To be able to do that and plan a schedule around that, will be fantastic", Jones said.

Jones, the 2015 champion, struggled in the increasingly turbulent conditions on the outer half and mixed eight pars with a bogey in the fourth before getting his challenge back on track after the turn, carded three birdies in four holes from the 10th.

Casey, who is chasing a third win of the year, also briefly topped the leaderboard but a painful double bogey on the ninth saw him fall back into the chasing pack.

His team mate at Royal Melbourne next week Marc Leishman was another one of 12 players within six shots of the lead after hitting a 70 to stay in the hunt at seven-under.
