Woods-Williams Beef Is Good for Golf

For the first time in a few months, golf was the talk of the sports weekend.

It wasn’t because Adam Scott ran away with the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational shooting 17-under par.  It was because Scott’s caddie, Stevie Williams, ran his mouth towards his former boss Tiger Woods.

Where do I begin?

When told that Woods said he informed Williams of his dismal face-to-face on July 3rd, Williams denied it saying “That is incorrect.  I was told on the phone that we needed to take a break. At the AT&T, the details of the firing were discussed.”

Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg, disputed that claim.

“Tiger flew from Florida to Philly to visit AT&T National and also for the express purpose of PERSONALLY and officially telling Steve that they would no longer be working together,” Steinberg said in an email. “Tiger felt strongly about meeting face to face. Any assertions to the contrary are simply false.”

Asked specifically if Woods dismissed Williams when the caddie asked to work for Scott, Steinberg said no.

You cannot make this drama up folks.  And this drama is not only good, but GREAT, for golf.

I mean, wouldn’t it be great if we had this bitch-fest between Woods and Williams going forward?  This is especially cool because Williams’ new boss is one of the better young golfers on tour.  I can see it now: Scott winning, Woods losing, Williams bitching.

Meanwhile, Williams should stay in his lane and remember that he is a caddie.
