Nick Jones ready for "Race to the Ritz"

Nick Jones is eager to play in the West Florida Golf Tour's "Race to the Ritz" event held at the Ritz-Carlton Members Golf Club in May.

The format - a match play battle among the tour's top 12 players on the Order of Merit - suits his style.

Jones said that's all he's played while growing up with his grandfather and his grandfather's friends.

Jones is also the nephew to former multiple PGA Tour winner John Huston, who is known as a streaky player.

The 24-year-old said when he was 16, his swing matched up almost identically to his famous uncle's swing.

And in match play, a streaky player can fare quite well.

Jones said he makes many birdies during his rounds, which is another plus for the match play format.

He's currently sitting fifth on the WFGT's money list - the top four earn a first-round bye during the event slated for May 14-15.
