Michael Williams dies on the golf course

London, 17th April - Michael Williams, the well-known golf correspondent of the Daily Telegraph in London, died today at the age of 63, after collapsing on the golf course.

Michael had just returned form America after reporting on Tiger Woods' win in The Masters last weekend. He was playing golf with his son, Roddy at Chelmsford Golf Club in Essex when he collapsed. The cause of death has not been revealed.

Williams was a member of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club in Scotland and had been a member of the Association of Golf Writers since 1971. He was also editor of the Golfers Handbook.

"Michael will be missed by everyone in the sport," said Michael Bonallack, secretary of the R & A. "He was a wonderful friend of golf and reported not only because it was his job, but also because he loved it."
