Calgary's Stephen Ames to make Champions Tour appearance at hometown event

  • Print

CALGARY - Canadian Stephen Ames will make his second career Champions Tour appearance later this month at his hometown tournament.

The longtime Calgary resident, who became eligible for the Tour after turning 50 last April, confirmed Wednesday that he'll play at the Aug. 29-31 Shaw Charity Classic. Ames helped bring the event to the Alberta city last year.

"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to tee it up at home here in Calgary for the Shaw Charity Classic," Ames said in a release. "Many of us worked very hard for a long time to bring an event of this calibre to this market. It will be truly satisfying for me to finally get a chance to compete in front of my friends and family."

Ames finished in a tie for 15th place in his Champions Tour debut at the Senior PGA Championship earlier this year. He has played 21 seasons on the PGA Tour.

The US$2.25-million Shaw Charity Classic is a 54-hole stroke play tournament that will feature an 81-man field.
