UPDATE: It sure sounds like Tiger fired Stevie:
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.
ORIGINAL POST: Tiger Woods announced today on his website that he is parting ways with his longtime caddie and close friend, Steve Williams:
“I want to express my deepest gratitude to Stevie for all his help, but I think it’s time for a change,” Woods said. “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.”
Presently, a replacement has not been named.
Did I see it coming? Nope. After what’s gone on since Thanksgiving 2009, am I surprised by anything anymore? Nope.
