Caddie hits out at Tiger over axeing

CADDIE Steve Williams has fired a parting shot at Tiger Woods, who sacked him this week after 12 years, accusing the former world No1 of abusing his loyalty.

Williams, who was by Woods’s side for 13 of his 14 Major wins, said he had lost “a tremendous amount of respect” for the American over his infidelity.

“I’m a very big stickler for loyalty and I stuck with Tiger through his difficult period,” said the New Zealander.

“That was the most difficult period I’ve ever been through. My name should have been cleared immediately. I never really got pardoned from that scandal so the timing of it is extraordinary. You could say I’ve wasted two years of my life.”
