Tiger Woods has tee’d off another one of those closest to him. The Cablinasian philanderer announced Wednesday that he and his caddie of 12 years, Steve Williams, would no longer be working together.
“I want to express my deepest gratitude to Stevie for all his help, but I think it’s time for a change,” Woods announced on TigerWoods.com. “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.”
Tiger is currently on a break from the PGA tour while rehabilitating his left leg, which has been troubled by a sprained knee and strained Achilles tendon.
Tiger’s breakup spiel — at least the public version — was pretty polite, but Steve who started working with the former golf champ in 1999 let his feelings be known:
After being ditched, he told New Zealand TV: “You could say I’ve wasted the last two years of my life.
“I’ve stuck with Tiger and been incredibly loyal. I’m not disappointed I’ve been fired – that’s part of the job – but the timing is extraordinary.”
“I am extremely disappointed, given that the last 18 months has been a particularly difficult time,” Williams continued.
“With the scandals, a new coach, a swing change, I’ve stuck with him through thick and thin and been incredibly loyal – and then this happens.
“I wouldn’t ditch someone when the chips are down. I’ve stuck by Tiger and put myself and my family in a difficult position.
“I, along with a lot of people, lost a lot of respect for Tiger [over his extra-marital affairs] and I pointed out before his return at the Masters at Augusta in 2010 that he had to earn back my respect.
“He was starting to do that, but it’s not the case now.”
Damn son… tell us how you REALLY feel.
Why even say that you’re not disappointed with being fired when clearly that’s the case though?
But seriously what is Tiger thinking??? This guy did hold it down for him. He’s probably just salty Williams has been making extra scrill caddying for other dudes while he’s out with that injury. SMH.
