Australian Brendan Jones has finished the Golf Nippon Series JT Cup in equal second position two shots adrift of winner Jeev Milkha Singh. Jones finished the tournament on 10-under after he posted a fourth-round six-under 64. The Aussie ended up level with New Zealand&aposs David Smail (66) and Japan&aposs Taichi Teshima (68). Singh continued his recent run of form as a final round four-under-par 66 helped the 2008 Asian Tour Order of Merit winner to clinch the title. Singapore Open winner Singh, who finished just outside the top 10 at last month&aposs Hong Kong Open, finished on 12-under-par after dropping just one bogey during his final round. Teenage prodigy Ryo Ishikawa (70) and overnight leader Toshinori Muto (71) shared fifth place at eight-under. Thailand&aposs Prayad Marksaeng held the overnight lead at nine-under alongside Muto following a third-round seven-under-par 63, but finished seven shots off the pace in seventh after a final-round 74.
