    Steve Williams is a very two faced man. I am wishing Tiger allthe luck in getting his self back in the hunt for a title. It’s people like steve that want to keep someone down. He was not saying this about Tiger as long as he was winning and getting paid. What a jerk.

    • RC

      you are wishing Tiger luck getting “his self” back in the hunt? Nice use of the English language – and Tiger has done enough to keep himself down quite nicely by himself; he’s made his bed now he has to sleep in it, plain & simple. Karma is a nasty thing and he is getting what he deserves. Tiger kept Steve hanging for 2 years then got all uppity when Steve went out & carried the bag for Adam – tough luck Tiger, you reap what you sow…..

      • Dave

        Well put!!!!

      • v.r.

        Uppity? Yesah, massah. Are you serious?! Steve is a freakin’ caddie! He hired on to be that position. Maybe if he actually played himself, then he could talk. But it’s not like he didn’t get PAID all those years and Adam wouldn’t have hired him had he not been Woods’ caddie. Get real and watch your racial slurs.

      • Samantha

        And who are you to judge someone life that you know nothing about. If you spend less time listening to the BS the media spew all over the internet and TV you would know that all of us have fallen. You need spend time cleaning out your closet and stay out of Tiger Woods because Tiger is going to be alright.

      • Doug Glass

        Slept through 3rd grade English did you now? Or did Fuball pratice kep you a-way frum the class room on da day they larned abut tha wurd “Hisself”?

      • Holden McGroin

        Hey Samantha, like turkey drumsticks too? They’re dark .

      • TLD

        Awesome response RC ! You couldn’t have put it better… Im so tired of hearing people feel sorry for Tiger… like you said he did this to himself and you can’t treat people so awful and still expect to receive sympathy and respect, it doesn’t work that way. But there are a lot of bleeding hearts out there.. But again love your comment :)

      • Bec

        @v.r. – I’ve read & reread RC’s comment… where exactly did RC make a racial slur? Are you one of the Obama brigade attacking and accusing anyone who dare have a negative comment about someone with dark skin? If someone has done wrong, it doesn’t matter what color their skin… they have done wrong.

      a rare wonderful commerical tonight- said it all- I’ll have to paraphrase- “when you only care about/take care of yourself- that’s all your left with- YOURSELF- and then where are you- ALONE?”

      Its NOT Tigers fault- he was raised to be a tiger- a lone hunter- where is value and esteem was measured by his ability to get little balls into little holes. I imagine he is VERY CONFUSED by his turn in fame and fortune. He has a lot of work to do- he needs a psychoanalyst- and to find and reconnect with his first serious girlfriend- if he does those two things he might be able to salvage himself for his children’s sake.

    • john j

      I have been reading all the comments…up to now, Problem is, none of these good people have any idea what goes on in the Press Tents around the tour, I am retired with more than 40 yrs. in sports media. You can believe there are a number of reporters who are enjoying Tiger’s “fall from grace.” Tiger was NEVER fun to deal with. NEVER a favorite of the media. ALWAYS a pain. And, we had to struggle to get any comments or reaction. Tiger seemed to feel the sports media were not necessary to his :”fame.” I for one, am thinking I may agree with those citing KARMA.

      • Bec

        @john – I know firsthand what you mean. My co-worker stayed in the hotel Tiger stayed at while playing in a tournament. Tiger didn’t win the top spot so he demolished his hotel room in a fit of rage. The city officials begged the hotel not to file charges or sue Tiger as they were afraid Tiger would not come play in their tournament again. The room had to be totally reconstructed at a cost of $24,000. The city didn’t reimburse the hotel, just wanted the hotel to absorb the cost. All hotel guests had to put up with the construction noise, dust and construction traffic… and didn’t get any discount for the inconvenience. Luckily, I had checked into the hotel a block away.

    if it wasn’t for tiger s. williams bank account would be a lot less those in glass house’s shouldn’t throw stones. i hope williams wife divorces him. and takes him to the cleaners. the days of those big paychecks are gone my friend. adam scott will never even get close to tigers winnings. a blind gopher finds a nut every now and then. look at the tv ratings without tiger way down!!!

    • Hank

      It’s just golf…

    • Audrey Ruth

      Sour grapes, anyone???

  • Gopher1013

    I agree with johnsonj3. Steve Williams has certainly turned out to be a back-stabber and a low-life. Any respectable caddy, who is an employee of the golfer, would be glad they had a great run and made millions, and now move on. How many caddies make the money that Williams did? One has to wonder why he was fired by Tiger: Steve’s current actions say a lot.
    Adam Scott had better watch his back, he’s be next to be on Stevie’s hit list ;)

  • PZ

    Steve Williams remained loyal to Tiger for two years while Tiger was down. Steve’s reward? Getting royally dumped and humiliated without warning. Is it wonder that Steve didn’t take this shabby treatment lying down?

    • v.r.

      Steve went moonlighting and got the boot. Happens everyday! AND he gets paid for it, so I don’t have sympathy. It’s easy to kick a man when he’s down. And you and Steve better hope Tiger doesn’t come back strong. He only has to do it once…and you know it.

    • Samantha

      Steve nevr remained loyal he he was sitting in the corner working out a deal for a book. Steve is no better than Tiger because I’m sure if you take a look in his closet you will find skeletons. Steve had made several comments before Tiger released him. If your loyal your loyal Steve has some Karma coming his way. One win doesn’t mean much let’s see can he caddie his new man to Tiger status.

  • Donald Hall

    I will admit Tiger Woods is probably the greatest golfer to ever play the game.but
    I always felt he had a haughty and arrogant air about him.
    That’s understandable though considering his childhood’when he was doted
    on and fawned over/ because of his unbelievable talent with a golf club.
    How do you just randomly dismiss some one after 13 years of loyal service?
    I just think it was a bush thing to do,Tiger could have handled it [n a much better

  • MedallionV283

    Is it fair to lump Tiger Woods with O.J. Simpson? I think not!

    • David Lee Thompson

      You’re right, it simply isn’t fair … to OJ Simpson. Tiger Woods is, without any further doubt, another in the long line of low-life athletes who prey off their fame to get rich, then throw it all away for a little temporary pleasure.

      • v.r.

        It sounds like you’re a jilted lover, than having anything to say with substance. You have no idea how many other ‘athletes’ have done the same, so I’d be quiet about it.

      • Samantha Witherspoon- Morris

        What about Big Ben the rapist. Mr. Thompson dom’t hate because your broke and your only pleasure is trashing other who are not.

  • Charles

    Tiger’s poor performances of late, exacerbated by poor physical condition, created his need to make some drastic changes. The one large and erroneous one involved firing Steve. Tiger’s grasping at whatever his “problem” is and trying to remedy it. Sadly, Steve felt the brunt of Tiger’s wrong assertion that he was somehow bringing Tiger down. I can understand Tiger grasping for anything that might improve his game – it just seems fairly obvious that the problem wasn’t Steve, and Tiger acted like a prick by dismissing him. Suck it up, Tiger boy…..the problem is you.

  • Ray

    Tiger had every right to dismiss Steve. I think he was a hell of a caddy. I am disappointed on how he has played his issues with Tiger in the media. Handle the dismissal like a real professional. Hell, he made millions. I am not sure why Tiger feels compelled every so often to change a swing, a grip. He needs to go back to basics and just play the game he loves with passion. I truly think Tiger will be back, however the pack has gotten better and they are younger. If he maintains his mental toughness, he will pass Jack, at that point I hope he retires with a bad ass Brazilan babe!

  • abqtim

    It’s never been a secret that Tiger wants to surpass Jack’s record and that Tiger is all about business when it comes to golf. So Tiger being an employer of Steve should have the right to fire Steve especially if the contract he signed with Tiger says so. It’s PRO golf not amature baby golf. Steve is crying and acting like a baby. Does steve remember how much he made before Tiger came along? Looks like Steve was just loyal to Tiger’s money and when that dried up he gave Tiger the finger. If Steve told Tiger he couldn’t feed his family I’m sure Tiger would have lent him some cash until Tiger could start playing and winning again. So I believe Steve is the jerk.

  • C.Simon

    Amazing how so many of you “know” Tiger Woods so well. The 24/7 news cycle and the Internet has created some major illusions in people’s minds! You know only what the media told you. Which means, next to nothing other than headlines that are devised to sell news. The reporters and photographers don’t know thecelebrities! That’s why they make telescopic and zoom lenses.

    You can disapprove Tiger’s extramarital behavior. But you’ll never know what went on inside of his marriage, or everything that went on outside of it. Fact is,Tiger Woods was roasted and toasted by the media far beyond what was reasonable for one reason: they made money on it. Scores of celebrities -have done as much or worse– many even bragging of it to make their “stars” rise higher. Consumers ate it up, and the sense of schaudenfraude (taking pleasure out of someone’s misfortune) could be cut with a knife.

    Every professional athlete’s JOB is to perform his best. Ane when he/she falls into a rut, it’s their JOB to try to solve possible problems. Caddying is not just about muscles and carrying a bag. At the level of Woods, his caddy must be very experienced, very knowledgeable about the game, the greens, weather conditions, the clubs and his player strengths and weaknesses. He is his player’s strategic advisor and that is way they make so much money. If the partnership stops working — on either side — it’s time for a change. Steve made his name and his fortune by caddying for Tiger, and was incredibly fortunate to have done so.. Chances are high that he would never heve even met Adam Scott,let alone caddied for him had he never been Tiger Woods’ caddy. He’s a jerk and certainly no professional with his Tiger trashtalk.

    • DocBeeker

      @ C. Simon – before he caddied for Tiger, Williams caddied for Peter Thompson, Greg Norman, and Raymond Floyd, three great golfers. Tiger hired him because he was the best caddie in the world. Steve certainly earned a great deal of money working for Tiger, but he made his name himself. I agree that he didn’t handle the whole situation well, but he is also the same ‘jerk’ who donated a million dollars of his own money to help fund a children’s cancer ward. He has come off as abrasive in the past, but regardless, I think Tiger could have handled the situation much better himself.

    • Olney Falcon

      Better late than never, here is the lesson you should have received while growing up: Regarding your use of the word “Schadenfreude”, one should never use a word they can’t spell. Blessings…

    • cole porter

      haha. The same thing you say others did to Tiger, you did to his caddy; saying he is a jerk and not a professional. I was a fan of Tiger having a great deal of respect for him, until all of this occurred. If he turns his life around, he will regain my respect. Understanding that all people fall and fail at some point or another is a must, but until they get up they don’t deserve accolades or undue respect.

  • Your mother

    Tiger and Steve are both D-heads…they don’t deserve their station in life.

  • Ely Feliciano

    Steve Willisams should be thankful to Tiger
    W oods for letting him worked To Adam.If you”re the emplloyer df
    Steve and there was a good offer for him? Will you say no ?. Tigert know that
    he was not 100 per cent ready to play. He should had said that Tiger was not
    a good boss when he was working with hin,It us always bitter to be fired. I just both remained health.

  • Ben

  • keith

    Sometimes In Life, when things go bad for you and you know you have reached the bottom. From there the only way to go is up. dont count him out folks, its only golf. If jobe can come back so can tiger woods.

  • Massive Marbles


    Take a bad situation and turn it around. Do something positive. Become the National Spokesperson for Sexual Addictions. Talk about it in real serious terms.

    You will bounce back when you get it all off your chest and talk with others about it.

    – A Friend :)

  • Jimbo

    Tiger needs to start playing a 5 inch golf course.

  • Pedro

    That guy started to be a bad player after being exposed as a player (bad pun, I couldnt resist).
    I would like to someone tell me why? Didnt he had problems on his knees before the scandal?
    From number 1 to decreasing low number, thats something I would like to understand.

  • E. Petersen

    Williams ASKED TIGER if he could caddy for Scott while his leg healed. Tiger got all butthurt about it & fired Williams.

    Tiger’s precipitous fall from grace continues. Too bad, because I used to really respect the guy & loved to watch him play.

  • Annie

    what goes around comes around..karma wins every time..Woods is a classic narcissistic personality disorder case..

  • Mudman

    At some point real life and adulthood come rushing at you, in the face, like a Mack truck. The question is, can you deal with the impact. Woods got hit–and hard. I think he’ll figure it out, but it will take some more time. My take is he’s having to shed the hangers-on; Stevie Williams included. That guy stayed around for TWO YEARS. “So when’s the gravy train starting up again? What? You’re not playing again this week? I’m bagging Adam Scott. Okay?” Evidently it wasn’t OK. We all need to face reality–Stevie Williams included. His gravy train, hanger-on status just wouldn’t go on forever, and when it stopped he showed his true colors. Tiger’s better off without what appears to be a leech on his bag and at his back.


    When people that know you best turn on you, you are on the downward path of self destruction. Tiger has mental problems in my opinion.

  • bobbi

    Eldrick Woods is the world’s worst tipper. On behalf of hard-working service industry people everywhere, may his life go down in flames.

  • devinjgray

    Sounds about right. Two jerks who worked compatibly for years
