Steve Williams Says He Should Have Left Tiger Woods Before Scandal Erupted

What was once a seemingly perfect marriage between Tiger Woods and caddie Steve Williams went south faster than a fresh Kim Kardashian relationship.  When Tiger was at the top of his game, he and Williams were seen as the most dominant pair in the history of golf.  An ended friendship and a racial slur or two later, it now seems like the two hate each other more and more every day.  Looking back on the situation, Williams said he regrets not leaving Woods much earlier in their careers.

“I think everything you do in life, you’d like to go out on a high as opposed to a low,” Williams told Yahoo! Sports earlier this week. “Looking back, perhaps after Tiger competed down here in Australia at the (2009) Australian Masters, it was a very memorable win. I really enjoyed that tournament. That was the last event he played before all the events transpired. Perhaps I should have, you know, left him then.”

That’s what we call a delayed attempt at the old, “You can’t fire me — I quit!” routine.  I’m sure there is an endless list of sponsors who also wish they bailed out just before the Tiger Woods scandal exploded into the spotlight, but that would require seeing into the future.  Williams is right to feel slighted by the way things ended between he and Tiger, but he needs to leave his emotions behind and get on with his career.  Everyone who finishes with a losing season wishes they hung it up back when they were the league MVP.

Golf clap to the USA Today’s Game On! for passing along the interview.

    I like how this guy just cannot keep his mouth shut.  Yes.  Perhaps you should’ve left Tiger earlier on in his career.  But you didn’t.  You know why???  BECAUSE YOU WERE MAKING A TON OF MONEY!!!  Now that you are not with Tiger, just keep your damn mouth shut.  You are a fricking caddie.

    I guess since Steve Williams is NO LONGER on Tiger’s bag, he will say anything to get the attention when he was ON the bag.  Feel sorry for Adam Scott but he needs to dump Mr BIG MOUTH Williams

    Steve Williams…SHUT UP. You are not the first or the last person to get fired from a job. Grow up and get on with your llife…We all need to remember there are always two sides to a story and maybe there is a reason Tiger let him go.

    Granted Tiger Wood’s is guilty for cheating on his wife, but lets be realistic, how many
    men do you know within the 20th and 21 century who haven’t cheated on their wives?
    In my opinion adultry is wrong, however not just athletic men and women seem to
    view themselves as above and beyond scandal, nevertheless, lest we forget that it is
    the public and the news media that make people like Tiger into some type of demagog.
    One of many mistakes Tiger made is trusting the wrong people and not having his wife
    not sign a prenuptial agreement, along with having all of his caddies and coaches sign
    a confidential contract.  The Tiger story just shows how trusting and naive he was and
    probably still is.  I contend that if Tiger’s father were alive he would have never become
    so intangled in such a mess let alone even married the woman that he did.
