Famed Former Caddy of Tiger Woods, Williams Looks to Hang Up the Bib After Next Season, Does it Really Matter?

Well, it’s been the week of the caddies. First, we saw Henrik Stenson’s caddy Gareth Lord cruising down the street in his Ferrari he bought from Henrik’s winnings and now another caddie made the news and a fairly known caddy at that. Popular caddie Steve Williams who has carried the bags and helped set up the shots of Greg Norman, Raymond Floyd, most notably Tiger Woods and now future hall of famer Adam Scott looks to cut down his schedule as it looks like he’ll retire after next season according to the Associated Press. He has been known for his years with Tiger Woods and has been widely considered one of the better caddies in the game. No doubt though that Woods is the one who made him the most popular and reeled him in the most dough. Williams looks to do one full season in 2014 and looks to cut down his schedule with Adam Scott in 2015. Williams looks to move on to something else that’s close to his heart and that is racing which he’s known for over in New Zealand, yes, he drives race cars.

“I’ve always been passionate about my racing, and to be fair, I’ve probably only got four or five years left at the top level,” Williams said according to the AP. Williams is also known for running his mouth a bit too as he had said a racial slur about Tiger Woods and also mentioned his win with Adam Scott at the Bridgestone Invitational back in 2011 as somewhat as an insult to Woods because he was mad about Woods’ off course doings. See, that’s why I roll my eyes when Tiger never speaks up on racial slurs. People get comfortable because they know he won’t say anything so they think it’s OK but that’s a story for another day. There was also a controversy where Williams ran his flap about Phil Mickelson too saying that he “hated him” claiming Mickelson never showed him “respect”. Williams also caddied for five-time British Open winner Peter Thomson as a 13-year-old at the New Zealand Open and says that he’s very pleased with his success as a caddy.

He also noted that he wants to try to build a relationship again with Woods. “I think Tiger and I need to sit down and have a conversation,” Williams said Saturday according again to the AP. Williams has had a very solid career as a caddy with over 140 wins including over 10 majors. He hopes to continue to race at a high level in his homeland of New Zealand even at the age of 50 which is why he continues to workout daily. So what do you guys think about the controversial caddy leaving the game after a couple of years? Sad? Good riddance? Honestly, I don’t really care. The dude was kind of a jerk so it’s whatever for me. Let me know what YOU guys think in the comments section!

I've always felt Steve thought he was better than the guy he was working for. He was rude to people outside the ropes. Glad to see he is going outside the ropes.

I will say he definitely knows how to pick winning golfers or perhaps he has helped them achieve that success along the way. Racing is one way to end a career, permanently..

Mike, that's what I'm saying homie! I'm not a fan of tiger but I'm not a fan of Williams either. He's a freaking bum that's rude when he should be thankful for the luxury life he's living, not only was he making golf money, he was making racing money too! Thanks for visiting my site Mike, hope to see you here again bro! :)

Yes Williams Has been out spoken. That is our con. right. As far as Williams and Tiger Woods, "i feel he was hurt and embraced. I do believe he still has a very special place in his hart, for Tiger. Time has away ,of healing all wounds. I do hope Williams the best in his new /old love racing.He has been very loyal to each person he has worked for. And yes he definability knows the golf game. Each player have been helped by Williams knowledge.

I wiah the man good health and a happy life but he has still been rude when he should be thankful for the life he lives. Anybody would love to be in is shoes and he shouldn't have to apologize for anything if he doesn't open his big trap. Like my man The Rock says, "Know your role! And SHUT YOUR MOUTH!". Appreciate the comment nurseali, love your input! :)
