If there’s a man that’s quietly going about the business of winning the NSW Amateur, then that quiet man would be Dale Williamson.
The Killara Golf Club member has gone about his first two matches with a minimum of fuss and simply got the job done.
“I played really well this morning against Jason Hong. He had it going early and all I could do was play catchup at the start,” Williamson said. “I took a couple of birdies and an eagle to get myself back into it this morning. Then I held it through the last bit. It was a great match.”
His afternoon win came against good mate Dylan Perry and wasn’t decided until Williamson rolled in a 12 foot par putt for par on the last to seal it 1-up.
“Dylan’s a good buddy of mine. We played a lot of junior golf together. It was lot of fun and a tough match.”
The Killara member is happy with his game right now in particular how well he’s driving the ball.
“I’m driving the ball really good at the moment, and around here you’ve got to work the ball both ways, especially the new course. I can hit a cut or a draw at the moment so its helped a lot.”
His trick for the next few matches is aggression from the tee.
“I’m going to stick with my driver off every tee that I need to. I’m hitting it really well. I can go for it. I’ll be really aggressive and see how it goes.”
Perhaps too his trick was having the influence of his father Graeme on caddy duties wheeling his bag around today.
“Dad was on the bag today. It was a bit hot, but he’ll be back tomorrow. He’s not going too bad for an old guy. It was good fun,” Williamson laughed.
