Stephen Ames wins Principal Charity Classic for 2nd senior PGA title

A four-time winner on the PGA Tour, Ames won the 2017 Mitsubishi Electric Classic for his first senior title.

DES MOINES, Iowa — Stephen Ames won the Principal Charity Classic on Sunday for his second PGA Tour Champions title, taking advantage of Tim Herron’s final-round collapse. 

Seven strokes behind Herron entering the round, Ames shot a 5-under 67 for a one-stroke victory over fellow Canadian Mike Weir. 

A four-time winner on 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. 

Weir closed with a 69. 

Herron bogeyed three of the final five holes in a 76 that left him tied for third at 10 under with Willie Wood and Doug Barron.
