Not to be confused with Steve Williams who used to caddy for Tiger Woods, USGTF professional and examiner Steve Williams has been immersed in golf for most of his life. He attended Fresno State where he won numerous college tournaments and earned conference player-of-the-year honors. Unfortunately, Williams developed back issues and was forced into retiring from playing golf from 1978 to 1992. Upon returning to playing, he competed in the Cypresswood Open in Texas, where he finished as runner-up out of 125 professionals. He also has two runner-up finishes in the United States Golf Teachers Cup. Williams is also one of Texas’ most sought-after teaching professionals, having coached several playing professionals, among them PGA Tour winner J.L. Lewis. Recently, Williams has written a book titled Golf…The Great Revealer! According to Williams, “In this book, I share many of the thoughts and actions that touring pros know are vital to their success, but which few amateurs understand. Any golfer who wishes to play at or near their potential simply must do the same things or they will reach a plateau and go no further.” The book may be found on Amazon. Williams is the owner of the Texas Golf Academy in Humble, Texas, where he continues to teach the game that has been so instrumental in his career and life.
