WILTSHIRE'S Jordan Smith heads into the DP World Tour's break for The Masters on a high following consecutive top-25 finishes.

With The Masters taking place between April 6-9, golf's second-most prestigious tour will not return until the ISPS Handa Championship in Japan on April 20.

Prior to the hiatus, Smith recorded four top-25 results in his first six starts of the new year - although he is yet to finish any higher than a tie for 17th.

In his most recent tournament - the Jonsson Workwear Open, held at The Club in Steyn City, Johannesburg - the Bowood Golf Club member chained together a trio of 69s through the first three days before a closing 67 saw Smith end in a tie for 24th and pick up a cheque for 13,370.54 euros.

The week before, Smith battled to joint 23rd at the SDC Championship on St. Francis Links in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

Englishman Matthew Baldwin won the tournament by seven shots on 18 under, but Smith ended on just five under par following a rocky few days.

The 31-year-old opened with a two-over 73 but rescued his weekend tee times thanks to a two-under score of 69 on Friday.

A tough round of 74 kicked off Smith's weekend poorly, but the Wiltshire golfer recovered well to shoot a final round of four-under-par and collect over 14,000 euros as well as 20 more Race to Dubai points.
