Steve Enlivens the Game
Wellington-born caddy Steve Williams has “outraged” everyone “in this politically correct world”, but not the writers at the New York Daily News who say rather than offending anyone, Williams has “spiced up a rivalry that lately has been as competitive as Knicks-Celtics.” “In the process, he may have given Mickelson the kick in the pants he needs to get going,” continues the article. ‘He feels bad, what happened,’ Woods said of Williams. ‘It’s something that none of us really wanted to have happen, but it’s over and done with and we put it to bed.’ Only until the next time they’re paired together and Mickelson and Williams have to shake hands on the first tee. Clubs in hand, Mickelson’s real response might follow.” Williams has used part of his earnings from carrying Tiger Woods’ bag to start a charitable foundation to assist junior golfers in New Zealand.
