    Steve Williams just said his win this week with Adam Scott at Firestone was his greatest week ever in golf. Nice little dig at Tiger.

    Tiger Woods shot 281, +1, 18 shots off the pace. Those who have not listened and continue to say that it is only his putting that is preventing his return to the top ...

    Tiger for the week - Driving Accuracy - 39.3% (normal is 65-85%). For the week this ranked 76th ... out of 76 players who finished.

    Given that, shooting 281 is remarkable. Not his putting, guys, Nick Faldo said the same thing on the telecast today that he has to fix his driving to get back to the top.

    Also, yesterday he was paired with Bubba Watson and reports were that Bubba was outdriving him easily, up to 40 yards on some holes. Tiger did average 316 off the tee, 9th for the week. He can no longer count on overpowering the field. Since he can't do that, he cannot rely on powering back with 3-woods or long irons off the tee like he used to do. He has to fix his driving accuracy.

    I think it's still too soon to say the wheels have fallen off the wagon, but if he does win another major, he will be venerated, beatified and canonized for sure! :roll:

    The wheels are off the wagon. The question is, will they stay off.

    I wouldn't put it past him to win another major but it seems unlikely that he will ever again be the dominant player on the Tour.

    I am more than happy to watch Rickie Fowler, Jason Day and McIllroy instead of the scowling Tiger and having to listen to his entirely predictable and useless interviews.

    This is a great time to watch golf with all the young exciting players from all over the place.

    Williams reaction does seem pretty weird. Sure maybe the parting wasn't so hot, but Woods made Williams a ton of money and into a household name.

    And he wasted 2 years of his life? Come on the guy, is a caddy....

    Okay I know zilch about golf but what the heck difference does it make who pulls your cart around? They help the golfer decide which club to use right? Surely an experienced golfer can decide for himself.


    But hey maybe I could be Andrea's jav caddy.....my dream job! 8-) 8-)

    And then there was the time Jack Nicklaus fired his caddy of 18 years.
