Milton’s Robin ‘Tiger’ Williams delivered the lowest score in the final round of the World Junior Championships in San Diego on his way to a superb third-place finish.

The 14 year-old former Hampton Hargate Primary School and Hampton College student - he’s now on a golf scholorship in the United States - carded a five under par 66 in the final round to complete an eight under par aggregate total of 205, just three shots behind the winner, Phichaksan Maichon.

Williams picked up five birdies and suffered no bogeys in his final round to add to earlier scores of 69 and 70.

Two bogeys on par fives in the second round cost Williams, a former world champion at under 12 level, the chance of winning his second world title.

He’s been in great form recently winning two big events in the States earlier this month.

Another Milton member, Kai Raymond finished 87th in the world championships for 9/10 year-olds at the same venue.

Williams is back in action this week in the Future Champions of Golf event for 13-14 year-olds, again in San Diego.
