‘I felt like Tiger’s slave – Steve Williams’


In his recently published auto-biography Out of the Rough, Steve Williams, former caddie of Tiger Woods, writes how he often felt like the golfer’s slave. “One thing that really pissed me off was how he would flippantly toss a club in the general direction of the bag, expecting me to go over and pick it up,” Williams writes in his book.

“I didn’t have any sympathy for him over what he’d done,”

“I felt uneasy about bending down to pick up his discarded club. It was like I was his slave. The other thing that disgusted me was his habit of spitting at the hole if he missed a putt.”

Williams caddied for the American for 13 years during Tiger’s best years, and also writes about his disappointment in the superstar for his infamous sex scandal. Williams was angry Woods didn’t immediately make it clear that the caddie had nothing to do with covering up his various affairs, leading to Williams “being dragged through the wringer over a scandal I had nothing to do with.”

Another quote from Williams’s book: “I didn’t have any sympathy for him over what he’d done,” he wrote. “I believe you’re in charge of your own actions, and I have no sympathy for people who get addicted to drugs or gambling or sex.”
