Stuart Williams, from Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, England, is one of the world's leading Ten-pin bowlers. He is one of the most active tour players in the sport. Williams, along with the store owner father Dave, runs a Ten-pin Bowling Pro-Shop at Chester Megabowl, called MCS Bowling [2]. He is known to his followers by the nickname "Beef Stu".

Williams has 6 ETBF titles to his name, the "City of Barcelona" trophy in 2003 (This was his first ever European ranking event), the Brunswick Aalborg International in 2004 and the Ebonite Luxembourg Open in 2006.

Williams triumphed in the 2007 World Ranking Masters [3] defeating Peter Ljung from Sweden 2-1 (233-236, 235-224, 269-240) in the best of 3 game final. Williams had qualified in 3rd position, and also eliminated David O'Sullivan (U.S.) in the quarter finals, and Thomas Gross (Austria) in the semi-finals.

On May 31, 2009, Williams earned an exemption for the U.S. PBA Tour by finishing 6th at the PBA Tour Trials in Allen Park, MI (USA). This made him the first bowler from the United Kingdom to compete full-time on the PBA Tour.[1]

On November 18, 2011, Williams won his first PBA title in the Bayer Viper Open. In doing so, he became the first player from England to win a title on the standard PBA Tour in North America.[2]Observation article{http://above180.com/change-is-good}
