I guess we won’t be seeing Tiger Woods and Steve Williams uncomfortably missing high fives anymore. Announced today via Tiger Woods’ web site:
“I want to express my deepest gratitude to Stevie for all his help, but I think it’s time for a change. Stevie is an outstanding caddie and a friend and has been instrumental in many of my accomplishments. I wish him great success in the future.”
No replacement has been named. I’m sure there will be a flood of volunteers.
Steve Williams Shocked
Steve Williams was apparently a little surprised at this announcement, based on his statement today from his web site:
Following the completion of the AT&T National I am no longer caddying for Tiger after he informed me that he needed to make a change. 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. I have had the opportunity to work of late for Australian Adam Scott and will now caddy for him on a permanent basis. Having started my caddying career with Australian great Peter Thompson and working for Greg Norman in the 80’s I am excited about the future working for another Australian.
As mentioned, Steve Williams will be working for Adam Scott full time now.
