Henry E. Williams Jr. Memorial Golf Award

Henry E. Williams Jr. Memorial Golf Award

Born in Reading in 1917, Henry E. Williams Jr. called Berks County home for his whole life. He and his sister learned to golf from their father, a professional golfer. Some of Henry Jr.’s career highlights are his wins at the 1952 Tucson Open and the 1962 Jamaica Open. He competed in many other tournaments – twelve PGA Championships, seven U.S. Opens, two Masters Tournaments, and several others in Pennsylvania. While competing professionally, he was also the head professional of several golf clubs in Berks County, one of the last golfers to do both. This scholarship was set up in 2002 in his memory by his family.
