Stevie is an outstanding caddie and a friend and has been instrumental in many of my accomplishments. I wish him great success in the future.”
Thus far n 2011, Williams has been carrying for Adam Scott. Woods claimed he injured his leg in the Masters which led him to drop out of The Players Championship. Over the past year there has been tension between Williams and Woods stemming from Woods’ indiscretions with other women. Williams was allegedly angry when he discovered Woods was having affairs with various other women while still married. Williams said he was “shocked and dismayed” at the news.”
When the Woods scandal broke I made a claim that Tiger Woods’ career was over, I still stand by that claim !

Have you ever asked for a Gimmie? Of all the infractions in the game of golf the Gimmie is the most widely used.
Usually, a Gimmie is the distance between the putter head and the putter grip. Any put within that distance could be considered a Gimmie. Bottom line: Gimmies are against the rules of golf and are prohibited.
If you must use Gimmies, however, allow the distance to be only within the length of the putter’s grip.
