Hes a Hall of Famer now, but Stephen Ames isnt ready to give up playing golf just yet. Ryan Switzer Jersey . Ames was unanimously named for induction into the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame on Wednesday, becoming the 74th member of the countrys golfs shrine. And with Ames poised to celebrate his 50th birthday in April, the Calgary resident is planning to play events on both the PGA and Champions Tours in 2014. "Usually you think Hall of Famers are inducted when theyre finished playing," Ames said during a conference call from West Palm Beach, Fla. "I still see myself as a player right now. "Its a great honour, for sure, without a doubt." Ames induction ceremony is expected to be in Calgary in August during the Shaw Charity Classic, a Champions Tour event that Ames is a founding patron of. "The Canadian Golf Hall of Fame seeks to recognize excellence as golfers, contributors and supporters of the game," said Ian Clarke, the chairman of the Canadian Golf Hall of Fames selection committee. "Stephen Ames has excelled on the biggest stage in our sport and it is fitting that he will be recognized for his respective accomplishments." After attending Lynn University, Ames turned pro in 1987. A dual citizen of Canada and Trinidad and Tobago, Ames has recorded 11 career wins. Four have come on the PGA Tour, where he has earned over US$19.5 million. Ames first Tour win came July 4, 2004 at the Cialis Western Open, finishing two strokes ahead of American Steve Lowery. His last victory came in 09 at the Childrens Miracle Network Classic in a playoff with Justin Leonard and George McNeill, both of the U.S. Ames has also won on the European and Nationwide Tours as well as three skins events, including the 05 Telus World Skins Game in Whistler, B.C. when he finished ahead of Jack Nicklaus, John Daly and Vijay Singh. He finished second behind Daly in the 06 event held at Banff, Alta., and third in 07 in Thornbury, Ont. A career milestone came in 06 when Ames captured The Players Championship by six strokes over Retief Goosen. The win was worth US$1.44 million and moved Ames into No. 27 on the official world golf rankings at the time. But Ames said receiving the Hall of Fame nod has surpassed that as a career highlight, although he considers the 2006 win his biggest ever on a golf course. "It was a week of complete mental control, which we all know is very difficult to do, day in and day out," he said. "On the course, that would be it. "Off the course, being inducted into the Hall of Fame. Its very prestigious, very nice." Ames also made headlines of a different sort that year. When asked about top-ranked Tiger Woods prior to the 06 WGC-Accenture World Match Play Championship, Ames quipped: "Anything can happen, especially where hes hitting the ball." The next day, Woods thrashed Ames 9 and 8 in their match. Afterwards, Woods was asked about Ames comments and simply answered, "9 and 8." Ames is also active off the course. Last year, the Stephen Ames Foundation funded the inaugural CJGA Stephen Ames Junior Cup. And since 2005, he has hosted the Stephen Ames Cup, a Ryder Cup style tournament featuring a team of Canadian junior players versus a team from Trinidad and Tobago. His foundation also provides funding for junior golf programs and other childrens initiatives in Canada and Trinidad and Tobago. Ames is also involved in the construction of a golf course in Calgary that he hopes will host the Canadian Open by 2018 or 2020. Ames continues to put together his 2014 tournament schedule, adding he has exemption status on the PGA Tour this season. But he said having two separate circuits to choose from is indeed a luxury. "If I miss a few events at the start of the year, I have the option of playing on the PGA Tour or the Champions Tour," he said. "There are a couple of weeks where Im not going to be able to play in invitationals (on PGA Tour) but I can play in some of the majors on the Champions Tour. "Thats a wonderful opportunity that I have and an option as well, so lucky me." The Champions Tour is a circuit for golfers 50 years of age and over thats run by the PGA Tour. And while the Champion Tour competitors might be older, Ames said they still have the burning passion to compete. But there are subtle differences between the two golf Tours that Ames says hes going to enjoy. "The 19th hole might be a little different," he said. "The guys are definitely a little more relaxed after a round of golf and I think the camaraderie is going to be a little lighter, which is fantastic. "Its like playing with your buddies. You finish a round of golf and you go to the bar and have a drink and talk about your round . . . this is going to be a nice setting for me, I quite enjoy that." Daryl Worley Jersey . "It was a little weird looking over and seeing all the green uniforms," he said of his first game against the Boston Celtics. Khalil Mack Jersey . -- David Ortiz saved his only hit for a key moment for the Boston Red Sox. http://www.authenticraidersproshop.com/Raiders-Ted-Hendricks-Draft-Jersey/ . - Regan Smith had the checkered flag in sight at Daytona a year ago and a freight train of cars in his rearview mirror.Genoa, Italy (SportsNetwork.com) - Roma moved to within one point of Serie A leaders Juventus on Sunday as the capital club notched a 1-0 win at Genoa courtesy of a first-half goal from Radja Nainggolan. Juventus was held to a 1-1 draw at home earlier in the day by Sampdoria as the visitors equalized in the 51st minute through Manolo Gabbiadini, canceling out a 12th-minute goal from Juves Patrice Evra. That result opened the door for Roma, which was handed a numerical advantage in the 29th minute when Genoa goalkeeper Matia Perin was sent off for a professional foul. Eugenio Lamanna stepped in to face the subsequent penalty kick from Adem Ljajic, and he produced a fine stop to keep the match scoreless. However, Lamanna was picking the ball out of his net nine minutes later as Nainggolan got on the other end of a cross from Maicon to score on an acrobatic volley. Gervinho attempted to doouble Romas advantage in the second half, but his shot struck the far post, while Juan Iturbe headed the ball over the net from a dangerous position, leaving Roma just 1-0 up. Seth Roberts Jersey. And those misses nearly proved costly in stoppage time when Genoas Tomas Rincon scored from close range, only for the goal to be ruled out for offsides. AC Milan joined Napoli on 24 points after claiming a 2-0 home victory over the club from Naples on Sunday thanks to goals from Jeremy Menez and Giacomo Bonaventura, leaving both clubs two points out of a Champions League place. Fiorentina rolled to a 4-1 win at second-from-the-bottom Cesena with three goals coming after halftime, Hellas Verona edged Udinese, 2-1, with goals from Luca Toni and Lazaros Christodoulopoulos, while Parma and Cagliari battled to a 0-0 draw that does little to help other side in their battle against relegation.
