Golf: Ames stumbles to 56th in Memphis

Memphis, June 10 (IANS/CMC) Trinidad and Tobago’s Stephen Ames carded a final round 71, to finish tied for 56th in the $5.7 million St Jude Classic golf tournament at TPC Southwind here.

The 49-year-old Ames produced a mixed round to post a score of two-over 282 Sunday, as 23-year-old rookie American Harris English won his first PGA Tour title by two strokes.

Americans Scott Stallings and three-times Masters champion Phil Mickelson were tied for second.

Ames started poorly, dropping a shot on the second and even though he birdied the par-five third, he dropped another shot on the seventh, to make the turn at one-over.

On the back nine, he found birdies on the 12th and 16th but spoiled the outing with bogeys on the 15th and the 17th.

In Thursday’s first round, Ames opened with an even-par 70, followed up with a two-under 68 Friday before stumbling to 73 Saturday.
