Williams would ‘consider’ returning to work for Tiger

After ending his association with Adam Scott in September, caddie Steve Williams said that he plans to retire, but would also consider part-time work in 2015, according to The Associated Press.

“(I’m) 90 percent certain it’s going to be a permanent break from caddying,” Williams, 50, told the AP.

The New Zealand caddie, however, didn’t rule out returning to work for his former boss, Tiger Woods, if asked.

“He’s definitely someone I’d consider,” Williams told the AP. “He’s a tremendous talent, but it’s hard to say right now because it’s only two weeks since I’ve hung up the clubs.”

Williams’ final round working for Scott came at this year’s Tour Championship. Williams was the winning caddie for Scott’s 2013 Masters victory, as well as the Aussie’s wins at the 2011 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, 2013 Barclays and the 2014 Crowne Plaza Invitational.

Before he began caddying for Scott in 2011, Williams worked for Woods from 1999-2011. During that span, Woods won 13 of his 14 major championships.

The AP report said that Williams’ desire for reducing his caddying stems from wanting to spend more time with his family and that he’s already had “a couple” of offers to caddie since splitting with Scott.

“At the end of the day, I’ve known in the back of my head that retirement or taking a break from caddying was on the horizon. I’ve done it for 36 years,” Williams told the AP. “I just came to the decision that it’s time to take a break.”
