Tom targets pro switch after win

Part-time greenie Tom Williams claimed the Welsh Amateur title, underlining his desire to make a living putting on greens rather than tending them.

The 20-year-old beat Southerndown’s Kieron Harman 2&1 in the final at Machynys after finishing second to Irish Boys champion Archie Davies in the strokeplay stages.

He currently works three to four days a week at Wrexham Golf Club in order to fund his golf, meaning practice time during winter months has been limited.

“When I wasn’t working I was struggling to pay, now I am earning money I am struggling to practice, but I enjoy it and it makes you want to work harder,” he said.

Williams has been a Wales international for a few years but has moved up the ranking in 2018 after the likes of Walker Cup pair David Boote and Jack Davidson turned pro. Now, he wants to follow in the footsteps of former foursomes partner Davidson, who is currently plying his trade on the Challenge Tour.

“Seeing him going onto the next level makes me just want to join him. It is fantastic to see a close friend like that come through. I would like another year at amateur level, work hard and make the Walker Cup team. I want to start finishing higher in British events and around Europe, but winning this Welsh title gives me a lot of confidence going forward.”
