Tiger Woods 'Fluffs' Steve Williams


There aren't many match made in heaven situations on the golf course. Phil Mickelson and Bones is one. Ai Miyazato and Mick Seaborn is another. And for a long time, Tiger Woods and Steve Williams seemed like they'd be together forever.

But after all the Escalade stuff happened, and Tiger stopped winning golf tournaments, the relationship sure waned. That isn't to say that Williams wasn't doing his job (in my opinion he's one of the best loopers ever), but like relationships and jobs, sometimes you just need to change it up, and Woods announced that officially on Wednesday.

On Tiger's website, he said that he and Williams wouldn't be working together anymore, writing on the wall for those that follow golf at all (Stevie and Adam Scott have been working together during Tiger's time away due to injury).

While the caddie-player relationship often gets overlooked, it really should be said that this is one of the most successful duo in the history of golf. Stevie and Tiger won 13 majors together over a span of 12 years, and while Tiger tends to keep to himself on big issues and controversy, Williams was great at picking up the slack when situations needed to be resolved (I'm sure certain photographers would agree with me).

Maybe the best memory of the two was at the 2000 PGA Championship, when Tiger was forced into a playoff by the scrappy Bob May, and on the first playoff hole, Tiger rolled in a lengthy birdie putt, chasing after it with his finger pointing at the hole, while Williams ran after him, nearly beating him to the cup, arm raised and voice whooping. There will be lasting memories of these two, like that '06 British Open win, but the follow up to the hole was always one of my favorites.

No word yet on a replacement, but for now we should just remember these two for what they were; a match made in golf-love heaven. But sometimes, great things must end.

What is going on!?!?? I am so confused! Tiger .... yea ...

Tiger isn't going to be playing anytime soon. Tiger took the high road by "firing" Steve so that Steve wouldn't look like he was deserting a sinking ship by working with Adam Scott. I think this was the "announcement" Tiger intended to make several weeks ago.

I'd like to believe that you're right, J.R. I hope you are, but Steve is right. Tiger's going to have to gain trust back from a lot of people, myself included. He certainly seems to have become extremely selfish. And I don't see him "taking the high road" for anyone who isn't him these days. It's sad. I miss old Tiger. (Or at least the blissful oblivion that came with thinking he was flawless.)

As a former powerlifter, I can say without any hesitation Tiger has been on performance enhancing drugs in the past. Although I personally never used the stuff, I saw plenty that did and Tiger displays all the signs. He was a relatively skinny kid when he won his first Masters. He bulked up dramatically in subsequent years; a very unlikely scenario without PEDs. Furthermore, what happens after years of use, the body begins to regress and the muscles do not respond ... and injuries are very common. I believe this is what is happing to Tiger and his game.
