After 12 years and an unbelievable amount of miles walked together, Tiger Woods and Stevie Williams go the way of Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren. In a statment on his website, Woods writes “I want to express my deepest gratitude to Stevie for all his help, but I think it’s time for a change” as he splits up with his longtime caddie.
Speculation ran rampant last month when Adam Scott had Williams on loan as looper at nearby Congressional. Since Woods had withdrawn from The U.S. Open, it made Stevie a free agent. At the time Tiger’s agent claimed this was a temporary fix. Not so temporary a fix as Williams will carry the bag full time for Scott.
From Team Williams: “After 13 years of loyal service needless to say this came as a shock… I am very disappointed to end our very successful partnership at this time.”
There’s no word on who Tiger’s next bag man will be; it’s also not known when he’ll golf in another PGA Tour event.
