Stephen Ames goes wire-to-wire in Morocco for third PGA Tour Champions win at Trophy Hassan II

Stephen Ames’ game was sharp, but the trophy he’s bringing home is even sharper.

Ames ran away with the Trophy Hassan II at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Rabat, Morocco, for his third PGA Tour Champions victory. He went wire-to-wire, carding an even-par final round to finish at 9 under for the tournament.

His final round consisted of 18 pars. His reward? A giant knife.

“This is up there with all the good events, great events that we have on our tour right now,” Ames said. “The beauty about this event is the fact that it’s in another country, which I’m used to traveling and playing the world. For me, I enjoy coming here because of the cuisine, of the food. I enjoy it very much. This is very much up my alley when I came here.”

Mark Hensby got as close as one shot behind Ames, but a pair of double bogeys let Ames cruise to victory. Hensby finished second, his highest finish in 11 career starts on the PGA Tour Champions.

The tour’s next event is in Naples, Florida, at Tiburon Golf Club for the Chubb Classic.
