The former caddie of American golfer Tiger Woods has admitted that the biggest regret he has is his television interview on the green of the 18th after Adam Scott clinched the title at Firestone.
Scott, who won the Bridgestone International title in 2011 but Steve Williams was the one who stole the limelight with his interview. Williams had spent over twelve years in the service of Tiger Woods before he was sacked unceremoniously a month before the event and during the event, he stated that he had been caddying for 33 years and had 145 wins under his belt but that win for Scott was the most special he has ever had.
And in a recent interview, Williams stated that that interview was a mistake.
He mentioned that it never happens for a caddie. He admitted that he was pretty excited at that time and had gone through an extremely difficult twelve months previously with the fall out with Woods. He never expected someone to put a microphone in front of him while walking off the greens on the 18th and it was an outburst of emotion.
Woods had been caddying for Woods since before the turn of the century, looking over a whopping 72 wins all over the world, including 13 major titles as well as 16 Golf World Championships.
And it also showed the deep resentment he felt for his former employer at that time.
But now, he mentioned that when he thinks about that period, he feels that he shouldn’t have said some of the things that he did, especially after the long history the two have shared together. And he has repeatedly talked to Woods about the situation as well as comments made a few weeks after that incident and he also apologized for that as well.
