Milton Golf Club junior Robin ‘Tiger’ Williams bowed out of the US Junior Open at the last 32 stage.

Williams was beaten heavily 5 & 3 by home player Cameron Sisk who went on to reach the quarter-finals.

It was a great run by Williams though on the iconic Baltusrol course in New Jersey.

The Milton member qualified for the matchplay part of the event by finishing 18th in a big field after two rounds of strokeplay. He won his first matchplay game 2 & 1 against another American Logan McAllister.

Williams has been in great form on two continents.

He was also the star man as England secured a disappointing fifth place finish in the European Boys Team Championship in the Czech Republic.

Williams shot a four under par 68 to help England qualify for the knockout stages in third place in the Czech Republic.

But, despite Williams winning his match 6 & 4, England surprisingly lost in the last eight 4-3 to Switzerland.

England were then forced into general classification matches and Williams again won 6 & 4 in a 4-3 win over Ireland.

England beat the hosts to seal fifth place 3.5-1.5, but Williams missed that match to travel to New Jersey.
