Caddy can’t get in the shade from the limelight

TAGs: golf, Steve Williams, Tiger Woods

Williams giving interviewsTiger Woods’ return to golf this weekend was what everyone in the world of sport had their lenses focused on. There was one man out on the course over the weekend at Firestone who had his crosshairs on upstaging Woods as best he could – his former caddy Steve Williams. He did just that as well.

Adam Scott, the golfer that Williams now carries around the bag of junk for, won the tournament and it was then the wanker’s time to shine as he gave interviews still holding Scott’s putter in one hand.

Williams gushed to the assembled media, “I guess caddying for Tiger, I’ve probably been a bit unfair to the media sometimes. I realize I owe you guys something, so it’s no problem.”

He continued, “A lot has been said this week and it is great to back it up. I back myself as a frontrunner as a caddie and I have won again.”

Congratulating the player he caddied for also didn’t seem to be in Williams’ mind and it begs the question as to why he didn’t crack earlier if he was this bothered about the limelight being stolen by his former client all the time.

Woods has remained tight-lipped and is likely to continue to do so. You can imagine that if he won over the weekend, he wouldn’t have come out immediately and said that having a new caddie made all the difference. We wouldn’t blame him if he were to do it now. Tiger is likely to show the humility that Williams lacks and knows when it’s time to leave it alone. Stevo doesn’t seem to be able to do so.
