Tiger was beaten in the Ryder Cup...that’s a headline all of Europe will hope to see on Sunday evening, but it wasn’t what Milton Golf members wanted to read this week.
A ‘Junior Ryder Cup’ competition was held at Golf Disneyland in Paris as a forerunner to the main event this weekend and Milton’s star teenager Robin ‘Tiger’ Williams was selected for the European side.
Williams (16) is the one of the top amateur junior players in the world and he enhaced his reputation by taking two points out of a possible three in the two-day event for under 18 male and female players.
Williams was beaten two down in the opening foursomes matches on Monday morning (September 26), but won a thrilling fourball match one up that afternoon.
And yesterday Williams was in oustanding form to claim victory in his singles match 2 & 1.
But it wasn’t enough to stop the United States winning the match by a single point 12.5-11.5.
The tournament is due to be broadcast by Sky television tomorrow (September 27).
Milton currently have an outstanding set of young players as without Williams they won the Northants County Boys title last weekend when beating Kettering 3-1 in the final at Collingtree.
Kai Raymond (3 & 2) and Harry Smith (3 & 1) won their matches, while Morgan Cresswell and Euan Herson halved theirs.
