Scott goes back to caddie Steve Williams

Posted by on 10/13/2019

Former world No 1 Adam Scott is looking to former caddie Steve Williams to return him to the glory days.


Scott has convinced Williams to come out of retirement to have another crack at the US Open, British Open, Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship.

The three remaining majors of the year presents the Queenslander with his best and last chance of winning another major with his famed broomstick putter, which will be banned from the Tour next year.

Scott said he had to talk Williams out of retirement for the next three months, having last worked together at the Tour Championship last year.

“Steve was adamant that he was not going to caddy in 2015 so he took some convincing but I am very happy he’s agreed to help out,” Scott said in a release.

“We’ve had great success together so I’m looking forward to being on the links with Steve again.”

Scott formed a winning partnership with Williams over four years on Tour and they last worked together at the Fed-Ex Cup playoffs eight months ago.

During this time Scott rose to No.1 in the world rankings and accomplished his greatest feat – winning the Masters.

But Williams called time on their partnership, saying he needed time to pursue other pursuits.

This led to Mike Kerr jumping on the bag, but the results have been disastrous.

While Scott finished tied fourth at Doral, he missed two cuts and has not finished better than a tie for 24th.

That was at the Colonial, when he fired Kerr.

The Australian has since slipped to No.12 in the rankings, struggled with his putting while recording just two top-10 finishes this season. He was 38th at the Masters.

Scott has previously said he derives some confidence from the presence of Williams, who enjoyed success as a caddie for Tiger Woods from 1999 to 2011.

Williams has been on the bag for 14 majors – 13 of them with Tiger Woods and the 2013 Masters with Scott.
