Steve Williams ripped into his old boss with a racial slur that caused even more commotion involving the jilted caddie and golf’s biggest name. “He’s a character within the game of golf, and whatever bitterness that exists between him and Tiger should be in the past by now,” said Graeme McDowell, one of several players at the party. “It’s unfortunate that it’s going to rear it’s head again.” Williams, still angered over getting fired by Woods this summer, was working for Adam Scott when he won the Bridgestone Invitational. That tournament also was the first time Woods played since splitting with his caddie. An emotionally charged Williams gave a TV interview on the 18th green and called it “the best win of my life,” even though he had been on the bag for 13 majors with Woods.

On Friday night, the host called Williams to the stage to collect his award and asked him to explain his enthusiasm. Williams, with a smirk on his face, leaned toward the microphone and said, “It was my aim to shove it right up that black asshole.” On a night filled with banter and off-color remarks, this one was a show-stopper. Heads turned, eyes widened and jaws dropped amid a mixture of shock and laughter. Williams later issued a statement apologizing to Woods. That was good enough for Scott, who said he had no plans to fire his caddie. During an event in New Zealand in December 2008, he made news for comments about Phil Mickelson. According to The Guardian newspaper of Britain he said, “I wouldn’t call Mickelson a great player, ’cause I hate the prick”. In a next-day interview with another newspaper, the New Zealand-based Star Times, Williams also said, “I don’t particularly like the guy. He pays me no respect at all and hence I don’t pay him any respect. It’s no secret we don’t get along either.”
