Tiger fires Steve Williams

Did Tiger fire Stevie or did Stevie quit?  Williams has been riding the Adam Scott horse for the last few tournaments under the assumption that he was on loan to Adam but the Kiwi and Aussie seem to get along great and Scott is playing well.  Don’t think Tiger’s problems have anything to do with Williams and maybe he was thinking change for the sake of change.  Maybe the request to work for Scott in the U.S. Open looked like a disloyal move on Williams’ part.  In the Tiger camp, the latest change to swing coach Sean Foley hasn’t worked out, with Tiger now a total mechanical head case.  New caddy going to fix that?  No way.  We’ll see who lines up next to join the circus but first Stevie goes on the money making circuit.  Can’t wait to buy the tell-all book!

Update, August 7, 2011:  Wow!.  Can you believe Stevie’s post-round comments after Adam Scott’s victory in the WGC Bridgestone?  It’s as if Scott didn’t even win the tournament and the whole world revolves around Stevie.  While discussing his affinity for finishing first in everything he does, Williams said, “This is the greatest week of my life.”  Pretty strong statement for a guy who’d been on the bag for 13 major wins with Tiger not to mention a huge finger in the eye of his former boss.  Little bitter there Stevie?
