Steve Williams has been embroiled in controversy ever since the publishers of the most famous caddie in golf released excerpts to promote his autobiography, “Out of the Rough.” Of all the paragraphs that could have helped to sell books, naturally, the suits are going to utilize the most controversial ones.

Well, that turned out to be the case when Williams likened working for Tiger Woods as feeling like he was being treated as a “slave.” Obviously, that one word in that one particular sentence out of an entire book created a global sh*tstorm.

Adam Scott hasn’t had the best season in the world, especially for a guy who was ranked no. 1 in the world at this time last year, so he drifted relatively under the radar this week at the U.S. Open — that is, until Sunday’s final round when he shot the low score of the week, posting a six-under 64.

The finish boosted him into a tie for fourth, along with fellow Australian Cameron Smith and South African Branden Grace at three-under, 277 for the championship.

Big shoes to fill!

With Stevie Williams’ announcing his semi-retirement following the 2013-14 PGA Tour season, Adam Scott is in search for a new full-time caddie. While it will be difficult to replace Williams, who worked with Scott for 3.5 years, Scott certainly has no shortage of applicants to choose from.

Tiger’s Back

Yes, pun intended. Tiger Woods felt well enough to play all 18 holes in the pro-am on Thursday at the Deustche Bank Championship — which was also the first time he had touched a club since last Sunday — unlike last Wednesday when he chipped and putted for the second nine at The Barclays, which was actually the initial plan this time, too.

Behind every golf bag...is a golfer.

 

The bond between a player and caddie is complex, to say the least. It’s like a marriage. The best way to describe it is the relationship you have with your husband or wife (girlfriend or boyfriend, etc.). Even if you’ve known each other for a decade and you’ve been dating for over a year, new challenges arise that test the relationship. You’re always learning about the other person and how he/she react in unfamiliar situations.

Tiger fist-pump...for the win?

The last twosome — Graeme McDowell and Adam Scott — has just teed off, but the atmosphere has been buzzing with anticipation here at Royal Lytham &St Annes since early this morning. It’s already been a hectic day with the usual excited nervous energy that comes along with the final round at a major championship. What’s more, look at the names on the leaderboard. We’ve got Adam Scott (and Stevie Williams), Graeme McDowell, Brandt Snedeker, Tiger Woods, Zach Johnson and Ernie Els in the final three groups.

As we’ve seen with all the dramatic finishes this season, NO LEAD IS SAFE.

The most-anticipated first-tee handshake in Presidents Cup history

As the sixth and final match of the day, Tiger Woods-Steve Stricker vs. Adam Scott-K.J. Choi, was about to commence,  Tiger made the customary rounds, shaking hands with his competitors, their caddies, scorers, marshals, etc. — of course, that included Scott’s caddie and Tiger’s former caddie Steve Williams.

In case you missed it, no punches were thrown. Geoff Shackelford compiled a play-by-play slideshow of The Handshake, which can be seen here.
