Ames, 59 years old, is the only other two-time winner on PGA Tour Champions in this season. Ames won the Trophy Hassan II tournament in Morocco in February. Ames has won four senior-level events.

Toms shot a 65 in the first round, a 70 in the second and a 76 on Sunday to tie for 24th place.

Two aces were recorded at the Mitsubishi in the past week, both on the par-3 sixteenth hole. Jimenez’s hole-in one came on Friday, and Steve Stricker followed suit on Saturday. Jimenez’s 14th professional ace was on the DP World Tour (11), the Champions Tour (3), and the PGA Tour (1).

Bernhard Langer finished in a tie for 8th place, having tied for the lead with 45 victories on the Champions Tour.

Tim O’Neal is a rookie in the senior tour. His best finish was a tie for 10th. His previous best finish was a tie with 15th.

The Regions Tradition at Greystone Golf & Country Club, Birmingham, Alabama is the first Champions major for 2023.
