Scott reunites with Williams for major events
It’s being reported that Adam Scott has turned to former caddie Steve Williams for the remaining majors of the season and at least one WGC event, in a bid to turn around his flagging fortunes this season.
When Williams opted to take a backseat from full-time, caddying Scott hired Mike Kerr after the pair worked together in a number of ‘trial’ events at the end of 2014, including the entire Australian summer.

After the birth of his first child, Scott returned to competition in a blaze in March with a tie for 4th at the WGC Cadillac event at Doral but it’s been a struggle ever since.
Scott’s best performance since Doral was a fortnight ago at Colonial, when he tied for 24th.
His battle for results has seen him slip out of the top ten in the world for the first time in several seasons. Scott is currently ranked at No. 12 but he hopes Williams can be the spark that will help him return to better days.
“Steve was adamant that he was not going to caddie in 2015, so he took some convincing, but I am very happy he’s agreed to help out,” Scott said in an interview.
“We’ve had great success together, so I’m looking forward to being on the links with Steve again.”
The 50-year old will be back on the bag in a fortnight for the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay, followed by The Open Championship at St Andrews, PGA Championship at Whistling Straits and the WGC Bridgestone Invitational at Akron – where Scott (and Williams) was victorious in 2011.
