Steve Williams: I’ve wasted the last two years of my life

It’s pretty clear now. Tiger dumped Steve Williams and the caddy is not happy about it. From New Zealand Television and the BBC:

“You could say I’ve wasted the last two years of my life.

“I’ve stuck with Tiger and been incredibly loyal. I’m not disappointed I’ve been fired – that’s part of the job – but the timing is extraordinary.”

“I am extremely disappointed, given that the last 18 months has been a particularly difficult time,” Williams continued.

“With the scandals, a new coach, a swing change, I’ve stuck with him through thick and thin and been incredibly loyal – and then this happens.

“I wouldn’t ditch someone when the chips are down. I’ve stuck by Tiger and put myself and my family in a difficult position.

“I, along with a lot of people, lost a lot of respect for Tiger [over his extra-marital affairs] and I pointed out before his return at the Masters at Augusta in 2010 that he had to earn back my respect.

“He was starting to do that, but it’s not the case now.”

  1. Now that’s interesting. Alan Shipnuck didn’t add that last sentence to the tweet he had quoting Steve. Shipnuck made it sound like Tiger hadn’t done anything to earn back Steve’s respect. Definitely put a different spin on the comments Shipnuck did quote.
