MATT JONES and Steven Bowditch have continued their good form on the US PGA Tour with encouraging performances at the 2013 John Deere Classic.
However, they were upstaged by American 19 year old Jordan Spieth (65), who became the first teenager to win on the tour since 1931 after a mini epic five hole playoff against defending champion Zach Johnson (68) and Canadian David Hearn (69).
But Jones in particular had a great tournament at the TPC Deere Run course in Illinois, opening with a 5-under 66 and never being far from the lead over the four days.
He closed with a 68 to finish on 17-under, just two off the play-off score, tied for seventh.
Bowditch shot a sizzling 6-under 65 on the final day to finish at 15-under tied for 12th.
The Australian pair had their best ever finishes on the tour last week, when they shared second place at the Greenbrier Classic.
Jones has now had three top ten finishes in the last month and a half. He was T6 at the Memorial Tournament in early June.John Deere Classic Final Leaderboard
