Steve Williams is done as a full-time caddie. It's the reason Williams and Adam Scott have stopped working together. However, the Kiwi caddie would be willing to loop on a part-time basis. In particular, Williams would be open to one last run with his previous employer: Tiger Woods.
“He’s definitely someone I’d consider," Williams told the Associated Press. "He’s a tremendous talent, but it’s hard to say right now because it’s only two weeks since I’ve hung up the clubs.”
Woods fired Williams in July 2011, just a month after Williams caddied for Scott at the U.S. Open at Congressional. Woods was out of the event with an injury, leaving Williams with nothing to do. Scott, without a caddie after parting ways with Tony Navarro, needed someone with Williams' talents. The two paired up at Congressional for what both likely believed was a one-week affair.
However, Woods didn't take kindly to Williams finding side work and ditched him after a dozen years and 13 majors won together. Scott and Williams became a full-time team. When Scott won the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational later that summer, Williams celebrated obnoxiously and acted like he won the tournament, maybe marking the first time ever the caddie had a post-tournament news conference. Woods eventually settled on Joe LaCava as his caddie.
Williams made several comments about Woods after revelations of his extramarital relationships became public in late 2009 and early 2010.
At a golf-tournament function in Nov. 2011, Williams made a racially charged remark about Woods. Speaking about his WGC celebration, Williams reportedly said, "I wanted to shove it up that black (expletive)."
Woods and Williams shared a post-round handshake at the 2013 Open Championship when Scott and Woods were paired together in the final round at Muirfield in what seemed to observers as close as Woods would ever get to a public make-up with his former caddie.
