A shocking second round ruined Robin ‘Tiger’ Williams chances of becoming a World Champion in Florida.

After the first round of the Optimus Junior World Championships, the 13 year-old Hampton Hargate pupil was tucked nicely in behind the leaders.

His two-under par 70 was good enough for third place, just three shots off the lead.

But the wheels fell off the following day when Williams crashed to an 81 which saw him tumble down through the field.

A final round of 72 left him tied for sixth spot, but even his best might not have been good enough because winner Akshay Bhatia finished nine shots clear of the field - and 17 shots ahead of Williams - on 10 under par.

Williams was due to start another World Championship today (July 23) when taking part in the Kids World Championships in Pinehurst California. It’s another three-day, three-round event.
