Scott switches caddie in addition to putter at Prez Cup


INCHEON, South Korea – It will be a new putter and a new caddie for Adam Scott at this week’s Presidents Cup. Well, not an entirely new caddie.

David Clark, who finished this most recent PGA Tour season working for Paul Casey, will caddie for Scott this week at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea.

The Australian, who also switched to standard-length putter for this week’s matches, explained that Clark, who auditioned to work for Scott last year at a handful of fall events, will be part of a caddie platoon with Steve Williams next year.

“Steve is going to caddie for me at a number of events next year and Clark is going to do the others,” he said. “I tried to get [Williams] out as much as possible, but he obviously doesn’t want to be out here all the time. Still, I feel there’s an incredible value in Steve and we both feel we have some unfinished business.”

Scott said Williams will likely work about 10 events next year and Clark will handle the rest.
