The Monday Recap: Steve Williams

So I guess Tiger Woods wasn't the one who had the magic touch around Firestone all those years.

Looks like it was Steve Williams, Woods' longtime caddie.

Williams and Woods partnered to win the World Golf Championship event seven times.

But Woods made is return to golf from injury without Williams, having fired the caddie in late July.

Enter Adam Scott, who cruised to a four-shot victory at the historically Woods dominated venue.

Williams was toting the bag, and made the no bones about where the victory stacked up.

"I’ve caddied for 33 years ... and that’s the best win I’ve ever had,” Williams told CBS Sports after the round.


The 13 majors, including the record-setting performance at the 2000 United States Open or the 2001 Masters that capped four consecutive major titles, alongside Woods wasn't considered?

Even at Firestone, where Woods won in 2000 with a ridiculous shot-in-the-dark and had countless other impossible shots pulled off during his reign as the best golfer in the world, which seems like it happened in the Stone Age wasn't considered?

Man, what a messy divorce.

But so far, it looks like Williams is the benefactor. With Scott's $1.4 million victory at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Williams stands to make $140,000 as a 10 percent fee for caddying.

Meanwhile, Woods limped to a tie for 37th and $58,000.

So Williams made more than Woods did without hitting a single shot.
