Brendan Jones has withdrawn from next week's PGA Championship.
The Aussie had expressed concern recently about his form entering the final major of the season even though he won on the Japan Golf Tour in late June. He's 0-for-2 since, including a stop at Muirfield. That Saturday, he said, "I need to prepare a little better for the majors also as this flying across the world for one week are not working for me. I currently have a start at the PGA in the US but am currently considering my options for that event." The other shoe fell this week. Sat, Aug 3, 2013 05:11:00 PM

At 19-under-par 67-66-68-68=269, Brendan Jones recorded a three-stroke victory at Mizuno Open on the Japan Golf Tour and one of four exemptions into The Open Championship that were at stake to those not already eligible.

The top four from this event at JFE Setonaikai Golf Club in Okayama earned a tee time at Muirfield for the season's third major. Jones was nails, circling an eagle and 22 birdies to offset five bogeys. It's his 13th victory on the JGTO. The other three berths into The Open went to K.T. Kim (272), Makoto Inoue (275) and Shingo Katayama (277). Katayama, who entered the week at 241st in the Official World Golf Ranking, shared fourth place with Tetsuji Hiratsuka (392nd), but he was given the final spot because his world ranking is better. Only Inoue will be making his debut in The Open.

Brendan Jones, who competes mainly in Japan, has made the trip to South Carolina for the PGA Championship.

Jones is fresh off of a win in his most recent start at the Sun Chlorella Classic in Japan. His last two trips to the United States have resulted in missed cuts at the U.S. Open and the 2011 PGA Championship.

Brendan Jones completed 36 holes of the sectional qualifier at Lake Hamamatsu Country Club in Shizuoka, Japan in 10-under-par 66-68=134, earning medalist honors and an exemption into next month's U.S. Open.

Hiroyuki Fujita (67-71=138), Tadahiro Takayama (66-72=138), J.B. Park (67-71=138) and Dong-Hwan Lee (70-68=138) all outlasted W.C. Liang (71-67=138) for the berths. Notables that failed to qualify include: 139--Ryuichi Oda ... 140--Kenichi Kuboya, Do-Hoon Kim ... 142--Azuma Yano ... 146--Prom Meesawat.

Within 30 minutes of learning that Brendan Jones was to replace Tiger Woods at next week's British Open, it was reported that the Aussie will not compete due to the imminent birth of his first child.

So much for the contrived poetry in Jones taking Woods' place after the former world's No. 1 eliminated his replacement at the WGC-Match Play in 2009. Jones' third appearance in the major will have to wait another year.

Brendan Jones has gained entry into next week's British Open.

The Aussie was the first alternate when Tiger Woods withdrew today. Jones gets in via the latest world ranking (68th), which is used to determine all alternates. These two were connected two years ago, when Woods defeated Jones 3 and 2 in the first round of the WGC-Match Play; and naturally, they matched up in the Jones bracket. Should anyone else withdraw -- Tim Clark, Thomas Levet and Vijay Singh are candidates -- the next alternate is Jason Dufner, who is ranked 69th in the world. He is followed by Robert Garrigus (70th), Anthony Kim (72nd) and Simon Dyson (73rd).
