PGA Tour Champions event sees final round canceled because of rain; Stephen Ames declared winner

Sunday’s final round of the Chubb Classic on the PGA Tour Champions has been canceled due to inclement weather.

Stephen Ames, who held a three-shot lead over former Naples resident Rocco Mediate following Saturday’s round, has been declared the 2024 Chubb Classic champion.

This is just the second time in the tournament’s 37-year history that the champion was decided in fewer than 54 holes. In 1995, Bob Murphy won the Chubb Classic at Vineyards Country Club in Naples after 36 holes when rain forced the cancellation of the final round.

The Chubb Classic tournament staff will be in touch with ticket holders who purchased tickets to today’s final round of play.
