Stephen Ames' career at a glance

Stephen Ames, 60, was born in San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago. Ames competed on behalf of his home country until 2005 when he adopted Canadian citizenship.

His golf career began at a very young age. His first coach was his own father and he learned to play at the Pointe-à-Pierre Golf Club in Trinidad and Tobago.

Ames played American collegiate golf for the College of Boca Raton in Florida and turned professional in 1987. His first years in this new phase were spent on third-category tours, as he failed several times to earn his PGA Tour card.

In 1992 he won his European Tour card and did well on the old continent, where he played for five seasons. There he won his first two major victories, the 1994 V33 Grand Lyon Open and the 1996 Benson & Hedges International Open.

In 1998 he tried his luck again in the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament and this time he was successful, earning his card for 1999. From then on he played consistently at the highest level, until he moved up to the Senior category.

However, his best results did not come immediately. His first PGA Tour victory came in 2004 (Cialis Western Open), while the best result of his career came in 2006 when he won The Players Championship. He would go on to win two more tournaments on the PGA Tour (2007 and 2009 Children's Miracle Network Classic).

In 2014 he started playing on the PGA Tour Champions where he won eight victories, including three editions of the Mitsubishi Electric Classic (2017, 2023, 2024).
