Brendan Jones will regroup for the USPGA Championship this week

Canberra golfer Brendan Jones will be keen to forget a two-day slump in Japan when he returns to the US PGA Championships for the first time in almost a decade.

Jones finished in a tie for 45th at the Asia Pacific Diamond Cup on Sunday despite being near the top of the leaderboard after the first two rounds.

He shot a combined 10-over par in his final two rounds, including a triple bogey on his last hole, to slip down the rankings.

It was a horror finish before flying to New York on Monday morning to play at the PGA event for the first time since 2012. "I just didn't have a good weekend," Jones said. "I didn't play well the first two days, but I chipped and putted by butt off. But then the last two days I played horrendously."

Jones hasn't played at one of the four majors since 2013, but has been playing well on the Japan Tour and won the a tournament in Kuwana last month.

The PGA Championship will be played at Bethpage Black Course this week with more than $10 million in prizemoney up for grabs. Jones has won 15 titles in Japan and is now preparing to play at the PGA Championship for the sixth time in his career.
