2008 Notes: Made 17 of 30 cuts on the PGA Tour during his rookie season, had a pair of top-10 finishes and finished 135th on the money list. Went back to Q-School but his T-107th finish was not good enough for a full card so played in 2009 in the 126th to 150th category.
2009 Notes: Had a pair of fifth-place finishes at the Buick Invitational and the John Deere Classic but in the last event to qualify for the FedExCup playoffs, he missed an 8-foot putt on the 72nd hole at the Wyndham Championship that prevented him to get the last spot in the FedExCup playoffs. Entered the Fall Series at 119th on the money list and despite making the cut at Turning Stone and Frys.com Open, finished 134th at the end of the season. However, gained exempt status at the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament with a hirrd-place finish.
2010 Notes: Enjoyed his finest year on Tour to date, with five top-10s and a finish inside the top-125 on the money list for the first time in his career. His fifth top-10 finish of the season came at the John Deere Classic, finished fifth thanks largely to an opening-round, 7-under 64 for his best finish of the season. Had a strong performance late in the year, at the Australian Open where he shot a final-round 68 to move up the leaderboard to tie for second behind Geoff Ogilvy.
2011 Notes: Finished 127th in the FedExCup standings, the third time in four years he just missed the FedEx Cup Playoffs (finished 127th in 2008 and 126th in 2009). Best finish of the year came at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, a T-6th. Entered the Wyndham Championship 122nd in the FedExCup standings but missed the cut and finished 127th. Ended the season 133rd on the official money list, nearly identical to his 134th-place finish in 2009 and 135th-place showing in 2008. Finished T-37 at PGA Tour Q-School and so again played in 2012 in the 126th to 150th category.
2012 Notes: Finished 172nd on the money list in 19 starts and eight made cuts. Season highlight was his one top-10 finish, a T-5th at the Puerto Rico Open after holding a share of the first-round lead with eventual winner George McNeill. Also was the 36-hole leader. Finished T-14th at the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament to regain his Tour card for 2013. In December, finished T-10th at the Emirates Australian Open at the Lakes G.C. in Sydney. Was in contention going into the final-round until a 77 derailed him.
2013 Notes: Enjoyed career-best numbers in in FedExCup ranking (32nd), money list (47th), cuts made (18), top-25 finishes (nine) and equaling top-10 finishes (five). Season highlighted by a career-best, runner-up finish at The Greenbrier Classic.
2014 Notes: In Houston, had the highlight of his life when he won the Shell Houston Open, beating Matt Kuchar on the first hole of a playoff when Jones holed a 42-yard chip for birdie. Got into the playoff thanks to a final-round 66 to catch Kuchar. The win forced him to change his travel and personal plans as he got the last invite to play in the Masters for the first time where he would miss the cut. Finished the year 67th in the FedEx Cup standings and 47th on the money list.
2015 Notes: Had three top-10s including a pair of 3rds at the Arnold Palmer and T-3rd at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. In 22 starts made the cut in 20, as he finished 33rd on the FedEx Cup and 44th on the money list. His biggest highlight came in November when he won the 100th Australian Open, despite a bogey, a double bogey and a triple bogey on the front nine during the final round. He won by a shot over defending champion Jordan Spieth and Adam Scott.
2016 Notes: Played in 27 PGA Tour events making 15 cuts. Did not have any top-10s, and best finish was T-11th at the AT&T Pebble Beach. Was 126th in the FedExCup race. Went into the Web.Com Tour Finals, made one cut in three starts, T-53rd Albertsons Boise Open. Was 111th in the Priority rank.
