Being Caddy

I might sound like I’m being caddy, but it’s hard not to when talking caddie.

Tiger Woods has initiated more change.
Not only is Tiger splitsville from his wife, Elin, his swing coach, Hank Haney, 
 and the fundamentals of his old golf swing,...
you can now add Steve Williams to the list of the departed.

Tiger has broken partnership with longtime caddie, Steve Williams, after 12 years.
Or to put it bluntly, Tiger gave Steve-arino the hook.
Apparently Tiger is tired of long-term relationships and considers them a handicap to his game.

It seems Tiger is looking for a new approach and calling his own shots...
saying, “I think it’s time for a change.”

(Wow, when The Tiger needs a change....he throws out the bathwater AND the baby.)

But let’s face it...Tiger had to do something major to win another Major...something to shake things up.
He couldn’t stay par for the course and expect to win.
Tiger hasn’t won a Major since the 2008 U.S. Open, or any tournament worldwide since 2009.
That’s enough to give anyone a bad case of the Yips.

I read that Steve didn’t get a whiff of the change coming,
so he was surprised by Tiger’s pitch to move on.

You would have thought Stevie, being the competent caddie that he is, would have read the break.
But Stevie (showing some lip) was quoted as saying, “Needless to say, this came as a shock.”
"You could say that I wasted the last two years of my life.”


It doesn’t take long for a talented caddie like Steve Williams to find employment.
When you’re in the caddie circuit...
it doesn’t take long to get plugged-in with a new professional.
Steve Williams only had to make a dog left from his native New Zealand to Australia...
to find Adam Scott,
who he recently caddied for at the British Open.

Good Luck to Tiger...with his new approach.
But a new caddie is not a gimme for winning.

Tiger might want to take a few pointers from the all-time great movie,

                                                                STOP THINKING



And watch out for cheesy looking stuffed gofers.

Hi there, thanks for stopping by...nice to meet you. That caddy was a Kiwi wasn't he? And very loyal. Now I really don't like Tiger Woods.
