The 14 year-old from Hampton Hargate won the 36-hole America Junior Golf Association Junior All Stars tournament at The Virtues Golf Club in Nashport, Ohio.

Williams fired a one-under-par 71 in the first round to start the second day in third place and then shot a 70 to finish level at the top of the leaderboard with Americans Trent Tipton and Alrik Pan.

That meant a sudden-death play-off and Williams kept his cool to card a birdie and seal the win.
