Golf Australia Express : Issue 46
THEY SAY A WORKMAN always blames his tools. Well, given some of the outrageous comments Steve Williams has made over the years, you’d be forgiven for thinking there’s no bigger tool in golf than Adam Scott’s caddie. Throw in a vulgar insult towards Phil Mickelson and a racist slur aimed at his former boss Tiger Woods, and you get the idea that Stevie sometimes speaks before he thinks. As a caddie on Tour for more than three decades he is one of if not the best going around. Or so he’d have you think. Yet for such a vocal looper with a loose tongue at the best of times, Williams has been incredibly quiet in the aftermath of his newest boss’ Open collapse. Interestingly when Adam Scott won the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last year, there was Williams on TV bizarrely calling it the biggest win of his career. “I’m a very confident frontrunner,” he said at the time, and, “I always back myself.” The way we see it, if you’re going to take credit for your boss’ wins you better be ready to take some heat for the losses, too. And on this occasion, we reckon Williams has a real case to answer. Still, don’t hold your breath waiting for him to put his hand up and take some of the blame. The following page highlights five costly blunders the bagman made at the death at The Open... ANYONE ELSE WONDERING WHY STEVIE HAS BEEN REMARKABLY QUIET? CADDIE SLACK
