Tiger Woods Caddy Shocked Over Being Fired After 12 Years of Loyal Service (VIDEO)

Steve Williams, Tiger Woods loyal caddy since March 1999, was personally informed by  Woods earlier this month, following the AT&T National in Pennsylvania that he was being let go.

Caddy Steve Williams fired by Tiger Woods is "shocked and disappointed"

Tiger Woods provoked a furious reaction from The New Zealander. Despite more than 12 years of loyal service, Williams was “shocked and disappointed” at the decision, having remained resolutely tight-lipped throughout the sex scandal that engulfed Woods late in 2009.


The Telegraph.co.uk reports:

In an impassioned parting shot on Wednesday night, Williams indicated that his loyalty had been betrayed. “I am no longer caddying for Tiger after he informed me he needed to make a change,” the 47 year-old said. “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 coach, a new coach and with it a major swing change, I am very disappointed to end our very successful partnership at this time.” During Woods’s absence from the game, which began when he aggravated knee ligament damage at the Masters, Williams caddied three times for Australia’s Adam Scott. After confirmation of the split, that partnership is to be permanent.

Woods, who did not name an immediate replacement for Williams, said: “I want to express my deepest gratitude to Stevie for all his help, but I think it’s time for a change. Stevie is an outstanding caddie and has been instrumental in many of my accomplishments. I wish him great success for the future.” Woods has reached a moment of crisis in his career. He has not contested a tournament since pulling out of the Players Championship in May, when he played the first nine holes in 42, and has fallen to No 20 in the world rankings having once held the top spot for a record 281 weeks.
