Steve Williams was dumped as Tiger Woods’ longtime caddie recently and did not take it well. The New Zealand native is in competition with Tiger, and made it a point to tell the public how much he enjoyed his week on the bag for Adam Scott at the Bridgestone Invitational. Check out this interview he gave following Scott’s win:
Williams also revealed some more details regarding his recent split with Woods.
“He just called me up when I asked him to go and caddie for Adam, and he didn’t agree with it, and thought it was time to take a break,” Williams said. “In caddie lingo, that means you’re fired, simple as that.
“I was absolutely shocked that I got the boot to be honest with you. I’ve caddied for the guy for 11 years, I’ve been incredibly loyal to the guy and I got short shifted. Very disappointed.”
It’s hard to present much commentary on the firing without knowing Tiger’s reasons for the split. What we do know is that Stevie is going out of his way to tell the world how much more he’s enjoying his time with Scott. That comes across as somewhat, I don’t know, petty. Reminds me a lot of this guy, and that’s never a good thing.Google+
