Joy in Jordan for England Boys’ squad ace Williams

Robin Williams has put all his England Golf experience to good use after storming to his first victory on the MENA Tour.

The 18-year-old amateur – a member of the successful England Golf Boys’ squad this season – claimed a brilliant eight shot victory at the Journey To Jordan 2 Event at the Ayla Golf Resort.

An opening four-under par round of 68 followed by back-to-back scores of 66 allowed Williams to cruise to victory with fellow amateur Jack Floydd his closest rival.

Williams becomes only the third amateur in the history of the MENA (Middle East North Africa) Tour to win a professional event.

Williams first became involved in the England Golf regional set-up as a 12-year-old and played a key role in the 2019 success story for the Boys’ squad.

England – with Williams to the fore – won the Boys’ Home Internationals for the fourth year in a row at Ashburnham GC and he also formed part of the squad at the European Boys’ Team Championships.

Williams has also recently competed at the European Tour School and a final round 66 helped him to qualify for November’s second stage.
