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.
That was how Tiger Woods announced on his website that the time had come to end his 13-year relationship with caddy Steve Williams. It has been an understandably hard last 18 months for Tiger and he’s well within his rights to make a clean break as he looks to make his way back to the top of world golf again. It all seemed well and good until you gauge the reaction of “Stevie” to the whole situation.
Enter Wanker Williams, and his response via his own 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.
He went on to say in an interview, “I told him when we first met back in 2010 at Augusta that he had to earn my respect back. He was aware of that and he would know right now I’ve lost a tremendous amount of respect for him.”
Now after all that it sounds like a little bit more than sour grapes from Williams. Elin didn’t cry this much when she got the book. Was Tiger shagging Stevie the wanker as well or something?!
Elin’s severance was better; at least Williams already had a job lined up though. If he’d mouthed and not had an impressionable Aussie line up, then you wouldn’t be surprised if he struggled to find a new job. You build up a career with two of the world’s best ever golfers (Greg Norman gets the fleeting nod) and then mouth off because Tiger wants a change. In the words’s of The Rock “Know Your Role and Shut Your Mouth, Jabroni.”
All we’ve got to say is have fun brown-nosing Mr Scott. We’re sure Tiger will be waiting for you on the greens.
