However, Jones doesn't look at the course as being overly difficult, and despite lackluster results feels at home here. To him, it's more about the time of year than anything else.
"It's actually a course I feel like I should play well every time," Jones said. "I feel very comfortable here. This is a stretch for me where I'm notoriously ... I don't play well during the summer for some reason, so it's nice to get that off my back right now and hopefully keep going with it."
Jones also said the course isn't playing differently from years past despite the different dividends, but he did admit the Old White TPC has seemed to change throughout the week.
"It's very playable, it's very scorable," Jones said. "The rules officials have done a great job setting the course up and making it playable, especially with the conditions we've had. It will be interesting to see what they do [for today's final round]. The greens are definitely firming up with the sun out there and they're not sticking as much as they were."
Jones has 12 top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour since turning pro in 2001 but has never finished in the top three.
As the last day of the Greenbrier Classic has shown over its first three years of existence, expect the unexpected on the final day.
Despite not being here for a Sunday before, Jones seems to have already learned that lesson.
"I'll definitely keep an eye on [the leaderboard], but I'm going to make as many birdies as I can and be as aggressive as I can," Jones said. "I'm going to have to because someone, as we saw Stuart Appleby shoot a 59, someone can go out and shoot a 62 [today] and come up from 6 under and win the tournament, so I've definitely got to be aggressive."
