Scott sticks to Williams at AT&T

With Tiger Woods still out of action, his caddy, Steve Williams, will again carry Adam Scott’s bag at the AT&T National.

With Tiger Woods still grounded on doctors orders, his caddy, Steve Williams, will once more carry Adam Scott’s bag at next week’s AT&T National.

This much has been confirmed by Williams, but right now there is no indication that the move is anything more than a stop-gap measure that suits Woods, Scott and the caddy himself.

Scott, who shared second place with fellow Aussie Jason Day at the Masters, had Williams on his bag for the first time at the US Open, but clearly isn’t blaming the New Zealander for missing the cut after rounds of 74 and 73.

Scott has been on the lookout for a new caddy since splitting with Tony Navarro, and because he and Williams are old friends, the Australian decided to ask him to work with him at the US Open, knowing that Woods would not be playing.

Scott told the Washington Posts at the time, “He is Tiger’s guy and that’s how it is.

“He’s been a good friend to me, a bit of a confidant in my career. I thought it would be worth a call seeing as I’m between guys at the moment. I’m glad he hopped on a plane and came over.”

Williams has caddied for Woods since March 1999 and was on his bag in for 13 of his 14 major victories.
