Steve Williams was a semi-finalist from Series 16 in 1988.

A computer programmer, he beat Frederick Sellers in his first appearance, and won seven more games to become an octochamp and #1 seed for the final rounds. He beat Gareth Hughes in the quarter-final, but was beaten in the semi-final by Roger Wales.

Williams returned for Championship of Champions IV, and beat Hilary Hopper in the first round before losing to Tony Vick in the semi-final by way of a sudden-death conundrum. Williams' losing score of 70 remains to this day the joint-highest losing score of the 9 round game.

Williams did not take part in the Supreme Championship.

Earlier in 1988, he took part in the first series of Fifteen to One.
