By Nick Mulvenney SYDNEY (Reuters) – Having missed the cut last year, Matt Jones knows that local knowledge alone is not enough to challenge at the Australian Open but the Sydneysider’s mastery of the wind has put him right in contention this week. The U.S.-based PGA Tour regular shot a superb 67 in round one despite 100 kilometer-per-hour (60 miles per hour) gusts, and a 68 in calmer but still tricky conditions on Friday gave him the early clubhouse lead on seven-under. A member of the host Australian Golf Club since he was 15, Jones grabbed four birdies in six holes before the turn to spark his second round, which gave him a 135 total he thought would still be close to the lead by the end of the day.
