Over the past 12 years we’ve been more likely to see Steve Williams throw cameras than zingers. But there Williams was Sunday after the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational holding court with the media like it was something he wished he’d done more often during his career.
Williams has been in the news most of the past month because of his very public break-up with Tiger Woods. The story hit new heights this week when his new boss, Adam Scott, won in convincing fashion at Firestone, a place where Woods had won seven times with Williams on the bag.
Comments from Williams have been sliced, diced and dissected from here to New Zealand, including people all over social media like Facebook and Twitter. In fact, Williams was trending on Google more than Scott, the man who actually hits the golf shots.
There are Tiger Haters who think is it great to see Williams speak out and bash Woods and his decisions. There are those who also think that Williams comments saying this week was the best of his life are little out of line and childish, considering that he was on the bag for Woods during 13 major championships, many of them of historic measures.
With so much focus on Williams he was asked if he had discussed the recent attention with Scott and if Scott is comfortable with his new caddie getting more ink than him.
“I can’t help that,” Williams said. “I guess caddying for Tiger, I’ve probably been a bit unfair to the media sometimes. I realize I owe you guys something, so it’s no problem.”
Whether you side with Williams or Woods, one thing everyone can agree on is that Woods would never say he was unfair to the media.
