Ames Lets Clubs Do the Talking

Day 156 without playing golf

No need to talk about Tiger like he did at La Costa several weeks ago. This weekend, Stephen Ames let his clubs do the talking. Boy did they talk. Ames just did the grinning — all the way around that demon TPC Sawgrass layout.

Ames’ final round 67 was nothing short of splendid. Winning by six, the guy was other-worldly. Meanwhile, the rest of the field coughed and wheezed its way to a final round stroke average of 75.

Ames put the 9 and 8 WGC debacle in his rear view mirror. That ca-ching, ca-ching sound is his $1.4 million paycheck. He also bagged some big-time exemptions.

At the trophy ceremony, Ames said he was going to Disney World on a family vacation. I guess.
