Australian golfer Adam Scott is on the lookout for a new caddie after sacking Steve Williams, who helped guide him to his only major title, the 2013 Masters as well as to the top of the rankings during their three and a half year run together.
Scott made the announcement after finishing ninth in the Tour Championship which saw Williams carry his bag for the last time.
The 50 year old Kiwi has also expressed his desire to cut back on the number of weeks he spent on Tour to spend more time with his family, his wife and 8 year old son back home in New Zealand. He proposed that he caddy for Scott between March and September, a time during which the bulk of the Aussie’s playing schedule takes place.
When asked about the proposal that Williams had put forward to him, Adam Scott stated that he understood the position of the Kiwi, adding that his life and career path are completely different from his and it needs to be worked out. He also admitted that having a part time caddie didn’t appear to be quite appealing to him.
Scott also thanked Steve Williams for helping him achieve some of his career goals during the time they had been together as a team. But Adam Scott also mentioned that the priorities and goals of both of them are at different points now and that is why, they had decided that the best thing to do at this time was move on.
Williams also recently said that although his semi-retirement might have put off Scott from retaining him, he might still be interested in going back to caddying for his former employer Tiger Woods if only the American gave him the call to return after firing him in 2011.
