JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Tiger Woods has decided to get rid of Steve Williams as his caddie.
Woods announced on his website Wednesday that he and Williams, who have been together since March 1999, will no longer be working together. Woods said only that it was time for a change.
Woods did not say who would replace Williams, or when he would return.
Williams has worked the last two majors for Adam Scott of Australia.
He should hire John Daly as a caddy. Imagine that, every time they walked down the fairway it would be like the circus coming to town. Tiger and the clown!
Heck Steve’s probably happy...he can get unemployment...which is more than he’s making with Tiger right now
Too bad. Those two deserved each other
If you don’t golf, you don’t need a caddie.
This was probably Steve Williams’s idea.
He should fire his swing coach and re-hire Butch Harmon.
I think this is why Tiger thinks its "time for a change." He doesn't really like to share stuff...
“Damnit, coach! I’ve missed my last ten free throws! Let’s fire the janitor!”
Only when he is done with them.
What a Delightful post for all the “Tiger Haters” here on Freerepublic. Rant and Rave Boy’s
If Tiger Woods never regains his old form and becomes another journeyman golfer--one who shows up on the leaderboard once in a while--do you think he would continue to play on the tour?
Tiger & Stevie = Lennon & McCartney
You know what they used to say, that Stevie was the second highest paid person the Tour.
Credit Tiger for telling the PGA that if his caddie couldn’t wear shorts during the tournament that he wouldn’t play. I’ll bet every caddie on tour still thanks him...
Since he can’t play anymore he should hire Casey Anthony. He could make a Billion.
I occasionally watch golf on the tube, mainly the big 4,but they turned it into ALL TIGER, ALL THE TIME.. other golfers didn't matter..
Despite all the talk about Tiger's "popularity" how he would bring millions of new players and fans into the game, golf has BIG problems in this country...
He probably already boinked her.
After 13 years of loyal service needless to say this came as a shock. Given the circumstances of the past 18 months working through Tiger's scandal, a new coach and with it a major swing change and Tiger battling through injuries I am very disappointed to end our very successful partnership at this time, Williams said.
I have had the opportunity to work of late for Australian Adam Scott and will now caddie for him on a permanent basis. Having started my caddying career with Australian great Peter Thompson and working for Greg Norman in the (1980s) I am excited about the future working for another Australian.
So what. It would ruin Golf forever. That must be the agenda. Next it will be “Green” courses that are weed infested and Brown because they will not be allowed water. The Blackification of Golf. Chavez wants to ban it in Venezuela.
One day Williams will have a book ghostwritten for him. Be interesting to see where Woods was getting his steroids.
John Daly couldn’t carry a golf bag and a cigarette and whiskey in each hand. It just wouldn’t work.
And besides, Daly’s wife likes to chase him around with a steak knife.
Disclaimer: I like Tiger, still. And I have always liked John Daly. I hope Tiger would comes back better than ever just to shut everybody up.
He's also probably the second highest money earner on the PGA tour........
Good for Stevie. To nice a guy for all that “Drama”.
Good Luck and Good Fortune.
What’s an old white guy doing being a caddie for a young black guy? Shouldn’t it be the other way around? What’s this world
come to? (Sarcasm/Humor fully intended)
I mean, I’ve been a bureaucrat all my life and I take far more pride in that than saying I’ve been a caddie. Only a teenager should be caddie. Never a grown man !
My understanding is that pro caddies are like coaches in the field. Helping with club choice ect.
