Caddie Williams to reduce schedule with Adam Scott
Question of the Day
MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA (AP) - Adam Scott’s caddie Steve Williams plans to cut down on his schedule after next year, slowly putting to an end a 35-year career carrying the golf bags of Raymond Floyd, Greg Norman and most successfully, Tiger Woods.
From 2015, he’ll work six or seven months of the year, basically from the Florida swing in March on the PGA Tour through to the Tour Championship in September. That will enable him to concentrate on his other love of car racing in his native New Zealand.
“It’s one of the greatest jobs if you like golf, but it’s not something I feel I want to do my whole life,” Williams told The Associated Press in an interview.
“I certainly enjoy working with Adam, and I hope we can have more success together. If I enjoy doing the half-season, I will do it for five more years. If I don’t enjoy it, I will have to think about it.”
Instead, he’ll devote more time to car racing _ super saloon and saloon cars in New Zealand, referred to as late model in North America.
“I’ve always been passionate about my racing, and to be fair, I’ve probably only got four or five years left at the top level,” Williams said.
“I had one season when Tiger was out for whatever reason he wasn’t playing, and that was one of my most successful seasons.”
Williams is still fit as he approaches 50 and works out every day.
“I travel a lot because I go back to New Zealand on my weeks off,” he said. “I race speedway, so you’ve got to be fit and sharp to be driving against guys who are mostly younger than me.”
At an awards night for caddies in Shanghai in November 2011, Williams received an award for best TV interview _ when Williams said after his new employer Scott won at the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone that it was “the best win of my life.”
