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.
