A Trinbago born and STILL citizen do something extraordinary and all u could do is HATE?  You do understand the concept of DUAL CITIZENSHIP don't you?  Why allyuh does big up Beenie?  He Trini?

When Dwight Yorke win a treble wit Man Utd or a title wit Sydney...why yuh does big he up?  He eh representin T&T den.

"Only a month ago, the 41-year-old from Trinidad was lampooned for teasing Woods before facing him in the first round of the Match Play Championship, saying anything he could happen, "especially where he's hitting the ball."

Difference between taking dual citizenship and choosing to represent the latter after you got it, which Ames did. He is still a Trini, but he no longer represents T&T on the international stage by his own choice.

well done ames...2nd PGA tournament he has won

Dat eh no ordinary PGA Tournament he win.

De man win what dey does call a "Almost Major"

Besides de US$1.4. million he take home....de man get automatic invite to de Masters and British Open's fuh 3 years and auto invite to de US Open and de other Major fuh 1 year.  

He get a 5 year exemption for de PGA Tour which mean he could play TATA and finish last in every tournament fuh de next 5 years and he eh have to go qualifyin school.

On top a all dat...he OBLITERATE de ress a de field dat included de bess golfers on de planet....includin 1 Tiger Woods winnin by 6 strokes.

A Trinbagonian do dat!  Nobody from we part of de world even come close to de same area code as doin dat.

It come like Brian Lara breakin one a he world records....and all some people could do is make snide remarks.

Dat eh right.... :shameonyou:

You have ANY idea why Ames choose to become a Canadian Citizen?

Part of it is because he couldn't even get into the United States to play golf tournaments due to an immigration issue.  Only when he became a Canadian citizen was that problem eliminated.  Of course he wife and children canadian and he was livin in Calgary that allowed that to happen.  But dat doh mek he any less trini.  Yuh tink T&T government coulda step een and help Ames wit he immigration issues?

But nah.....gum bumpin without havin a inklin wha might de reason fuh somebody decisions is de order of de day.

Palos yuh one of the few that knows the true story...others jus fight down the man without knowing the reasons he had to do it..Trinis really fickle yes!
Also the commentators said he played an almost flawless round while the others jus faded
So once again well done!

Stephen and Robert represent T&T every year in the World Cup of golf.  The man is Trini true and true.  Canada was for visa reasons.  When he has to chose who to represent, it is T&T.

 Ames finished at 14-under 274, six shots clear of two-time U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen, who closed with a 69. Ames earned $1.44 million for his second PGA Tour victory, and also got a three-year exemption to the Masters.

Only a month ago, the 41-year-old from Trinidad was lampooned for teasing Woods before facing him in the first round of the Match Play Championship, saying anything he could happen, "especially where he's hitting the ball."

Ames had a lot of problems travelling with his Trini passport..it was easier for him to use a Canadian passport...why yuh doh keep quiet...allyuh always quick to judge people and criticise.

Palos I would'nt venture there nah,that's a very sensitive issue where stephen ames is concern,he for one said it was in his benefit to represent canada and not T&T for whatever reason I think it had to do with some passport issue.To draw from an example like dwight playing for man u which is on ah club level is strecthing a bit,  where as most major golf tournaments when listing players put there country next to there name and he chose canada,whether dual citizenship or not one could say yes he's trini but the fact is on an international stage the only thing the fans will remember and say is "that canadian is pretty good".

Will that bother me or impact my life in anyway "no" but you have to admit if chris birchall could choose trini, anything is possible which makes it tough to decipher the choices the two have made.
