Jones finishes seventh in Japan

Japan&aposs Yoshinobu Tsukada has taken out the Token Homemate Cup by four shots, with defending champion Brendan Jones the best of the Australians. Tsukada came home with a final-round 69 at the Token Tado Country Club in Nagoya to move to nine under the card, four shots clear of compatriots Koumei Oda and Kunihiro Kamii. Japan&aposs Hiroyuki Fujita and Toru Taniguchi joined South Korean IJ Jang on four under, ahead of Jones, whose weekend rounds of 67 and 68 vaulted him into a share of seventh place on three under. Steven Conran was the next best of the Aussies, even with the card after closing with a 70, while Brad Kennedy came home strongly with a 68 to finish on two over. Kurt Barnes endured a difficult final round, however, and his 77 saw him finish on seven over, level with compatriot James McLean.
