BREAKING: Kiwi caddie Steve Williams has announced he's parting company with Tiger Woods and joining Adam Scott full time... more to follow
It's been a while since Steve Williams has had a regular job with Tiger Woods. The former world #1 golfer played a limited schedule last year after all the turmoil in his personal life. This year has been even worse, with Tiger injured for much of the season. Steve Williams took on a part-time job with Australian golfer Adam Scott, and now it seems as though the world's best caddy is ready to move on.
It really is the end of an era. When Williams joined Woods in 1999, the young Tiger had won just one major. He won the 1999 PGA Championship with Williams on the bag, and the rest, as they say, is history. Woods now has 14 majors, just four short of Jack Nicklaus' record which two years ago he seemed sure to better. Now, who would know?
This will be today's breaking story, and we'll have more to add later on; watch this space!
UPDATE: Already there's an update; it seems as though Woods has dispensed with Steve Williams' services, saying that it's "time for a change"; we hope that Steve Williams gets a decent severance package!
