More Than Tiger’s Caddy
Golf caddy Steve Williams always wanted to carry someone else’s golf clubs, and he ended up carrying them for Tiger Woods. Williams could always see that the golfers he caddied for did well. “I enjoyed it more than playing. Once I decided that’s what I wanted to do, I was willing to do whatever it took to be the best,” he says. While Woods is the reason Williams has become famous, his story is more than the Tiger pictures, flags and golf bags that dominate his trophy room. It’s about a hard-working, blue-collar millionaire who is just as comfortable on the back stretch of a dirt track in a late-model Mustang as he is reading putts on the 18th at Augusta National. Williams was awarded the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2007.
