The Golf Central anchors seem sweetly bemused by the laid-back, understated Aussie approach of Matt Jones. They consider it will help him get over the line in tomorrow's final. The video also features a brief interview with Jones where he does appear to be quietly optimistic.
Jones was "the only player in the final six groups to finish under par".
From Jeff Babineau, PGA TOUR:
There should have been a Bethpage Black-style warning sign on the first tee Saturday morning on the daunting Champion course at PGA National: Sorry, lads, fun time is over. No more low, low rounds.
