Tiger Ditches Caddie: Will It or Won't It?

So Tiger Woods dismissed his long-time caddie Steve Williams yesterday. IT migh tnot seem like a big deal; it's just Tiger trying to change everything up to get his game back. But I mean this dude was at Tiger's wedding and Tiger was at his. They were friends and co-workers.

From ESPN:
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Tiger Woods fired caddie Steve Williams on Wednesday, leaving his good friend stunned and ending a 12-year relationship in which he won 72 times worldwide and 13 majors.

"I want to express my deepest gratitude to Stevie for all his help, but I think it's time for a change," Woods said on his website. "Stevie is an outstanding caddie and a friend and has been instrumental in many of my accomplishments. I wish him great success in the future."

Woods did not say who would replace Williams -- one of only two caddies he has employed on a regular basis -- or when he might return to golf.

"Needless to say, this came as a shock," Williams said in a statement posted on his own website.

But here's what I'm saying; you know those people who you consider "work friends" but then you move on to a new job and suddenly you're moving on? That's kind of what this is. Tiger employs Steve, and he just figured he should switch things up because for the last year and a half he's sucked.

No more bromance

And I think that Steve is exaggerating how shocked he was. For some reason I don't believe he just got a call "Yo man, thanks for the wins but you're done." How could you not see this coming? Tiger is changing swing coaches, he switched management companies. He is changing anything he can to try and get back the old Tiger. I think he should hire Charlie Sheen as a "winning consultant". Think about it Tiger.

And it isn't like this guy won't get work; he was with Tiger for the glory years, I think someone will hire him tomorrow.

But the question is, will this move actually help Tiger? I mean a caddie is an important person to a golfer. They put a lot of thought into the course round after round. Will picking up a new guy help Tiger? I think he has bigger issues than who is carrying his sticks.
