Ben Williams

Ben started golf at the early age of 12 and within his first few years of playing achieved a single figure handicap at the Royal Blackheath Golf Club. At the age of 16 Ben set a new course record at Royal Blackheath with a score of 66 (-4) and then went on to beat his own record only a few weeks later with a 63 (-7).

After this Ben spent 2 years at The Golf College under the close eye of Sky Sport’s Denis Pugh before turning professional at the age of 19. Since then Ben has worked at Birchwood Park Golf Club completing his PGA training and now is a fully qualified golf professional.

Ben has competed in many professional golf tournaments within the south region finishing in a number of top 10s but still waiting for his first win.

Ben also has a qualification as a gym instructor and is heavily into the fitness aspects of the golf game.
