Ames wins Champions event; final rd. canceled


Stephen Ames was declared the winner of the Chubb Classic on Sunday morning after the PGA Tour Champions shortened the event to 36 holes due to inclement weather in Naples, Fla.

The Canadian shot 13-under 131 through two rounds after his 64 on Saturday. He was three shots ahead of Rocco Mediate.

The tour initially announced Saturday that the final round would be shortened to nine holes, played in the morning, because of the weather forecast, but the golfers did not get to the first tee Sunday before the tour had to nix any attempt to play through the rain.

A Monday finish was not possible with the tour’s next event begining Thursday in Morocco.

Ames claimed his seventh career win on the PGA Tour Champions. Four of those victories came last season, including at the Trophy Hassan II, which he will defend in Morocco next week.
