Trinidad and Tobago: Golfer Stephen Ames, who was born in Trinidad and Tobago island, has won the PGA championship tour event 2021.

The Canada-based Stephen Ames won the Principal Charity Classic for his second PGA Tour Champions title, taking advantage of Tim Herron’s final-round failure. Seven strokes were behind Herron entering the round, Ames shot a 5-under 67 for a one-stroke victory over Canadian Mike Weir.

On winning the PGA Championship, Ames asserted that “Everybody else kind of faltered coming in, unfortunately for those, but, fortunate for me. I had a second Atlanta and three other top-10s on top of that, so things were starting to shape up. It is just a form of putting things together and obviously getting fortunate, which is what happened this week for me.”

Following the statement, Ames added that “It is the kind of golf course that has to grow on you. You will definitely have to play it a few times to understand its subtleties, the bounces, and where to hit it when it’s running. I think this week, the superintendent did a fantastic job getting the golf course in the best shape. I have seen it for the years that I’ve played it.”

On losing, Herron cited, “Hopefully, I guess you learn from it even at age 51. It was a little rough. I Worked on some swing changes, and I think my old swing kind of came back a little bit. I was guiding it a little bit, but it was pretty windy today and just didn’t get any momentum going.”

Golfer Stephen Ames is a four-time winner of the PGA tour. Ames won the 2017 – Mitsubishi Electric Classic for his first senior title. The 57-year-old naturalized Canadian citizen from Trinidad finished at 12-under 204 at Wakonda Club.
