Tiger Woods’ longtime caddy Steve Williams had no idea about the 67 cocktail waitresses his boss should’ve used the 4-iron with and apparently would’ve gone public had he known, according to People:
“I’m a straight-up sort of person,” Williams told New Zealand’s TV3. “If I had known something was going on, the whistle would have been blown.”
Though Woods hasn’t spoken to Williams since his accident – and subsequent scandal – in November 2009, Williams has been personally affected by his employer’s indiscretions.
“Of course I’m mad at him, why would you not be?” Williams said. “I’m close with his wife and he’s got two lovely children and he’s let them down.”
But that doesn’t mean Williams doesn’t still stand by his boss. “When a guy’s having a tough time, it’s not up to me to beat him with a stick right now,” the caddy said. “He’s getting enough grilling from everybody else.”
It’s probably not the best career move to publicly admit you would’ve hung Tiger Woods out to dry had you known about his 800 affairs. Seriously, you’re a caddy, and last time I checked that means you shut up, carry the man’s clubs and toss a hooker in a water hazard if he tells you to. Granted, I’ve yet to get one to do it myself, that had more to do with me randomly driving my car up onto the green and less about respecting time-honored traditions. Steve.
