Nike has signed the former No. 1-ranked amateur golfer in the world, Chris Williams, to its Nike Golf staff. Williams, a former University of Washington Husky, makes his professional debut at the Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Conn., the same tournament where former No. 1-ranked amateur Patrick Cantlay shot a 10-under 60 in Round 2 in route to a top 25 finish as an amateur in 2011.
