New Zealand Golf is mourning the passing of Stuart Jones, one of the country's finest golfers, who was inducted to the World Golf Hall of Fame this year.

Jones first played for New Zealand in 1953 and for two decades dominated the New Zealand amateur championship, adding Canadian and Australian amateur titles as well.
