Former Auburn Golfer Lee Williams Wins First Career Nationwide Event

June 10, 2012

LEON, Mexico – Former Auburn golfer Lee Williams captured his first Nationwide Tour victory on Sunday at the Mexico Open, shooting a 2-under 70 to hold off Paul Haley II by a shot at El Bosque Golf Club. Williams carded a 14-under 274 for the tournament.

“I hit a 3-wood off the tee, and then I asked my caddie where I stood because I knew he was watching the leaderboards," Williams said. "I knew I had a one-shot lead, and with no one cheering in the gallery, I knew no one ahead of me had made any birdies."

Williams fell behind as he was 1-over par through 10 holes after a bogey on the sixth, but fought back into the lead after making the turn where he posted back-to-back birdies Nos. 11 and 12.

The 2005 Auburn graduate birdied on the par-3 15th to move to 14-under before parring the final three holes to seal the win.

With the win, the Alexander City, Ala., native moves into fifth place on the Nationwide Tour money list with $158,875 earned this season.
