“If that was Joe LaCava he wouldn’t be caddying for me today,” Couples said Saturday, according to Golf World.
“If (a caddie) has that kind of anger for a pretty good guy, I don’t want him around me.”
Williams used racially charged language to describe his feelings toward Woods after new boss Adam Scott won the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in August.
Couples said he would not shy from putting Woods in a match with Scott, though only at the request of the 14-time major champion.
“I don’t think Tiger and Adam have a problem at all,” Couples said. “Tiger and Steve have a bit of a problem, but I don’t want anybody uncomfortable. This is just a golf tournament.”
