“I want to express my deepest gratitude to Stevie for all his help, but I think it’s time for a change,” Woods said on his website. “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.”

Williams had caddied for Raymond Floyd and Greg Norman before teaming up with Woods. Tiger gave no indication who his new caddie would be when he is ready to return to the PGA. When asked over the weekend at the British Open if he was still working for Woods, Williams grinned and said, “Why would you ask a question like that?” He never answered the question but gave no indication that he would not caddie for Woods when he did return.

Back during the Woods hosted AT&T National heldat Aronimink, Woods spoke to Williams in abackroom after giving a newsnews conference, gavet he news to Williams. The caddie posted a comment on his website that it “came as ashock.” “Given the circumstances of the past 18 months working through Tiger’s scandal, a new coach and with a major swing change and Tiger battling through injuries, I am very disappointed to end our very successful partnership at this time,” he said.
