Williams, Scott: Masters-winning team call it quits

With a recent addition to his personal life by way of a new baby boy, Byron, popular Aussie Adam Scott is now making cuts to his professional one.

After several years together Adam Scott and long-serving caddy Steve Williams are set to part ways, with the veteran confirming that he would not be on the Australian’s bag next season.

The decision comes after Scott expressed a desire to end the job-share arrangement that has seen the 37-year-old use two caddies for the past couple of seasons.

“I’m not going to caddie for Adam next year, he’ll return to having a full-time caddie,” said Williams.

“He’s had a job-share where he’s had two caddies for the past two seasons but he wants to return to one caddie next season.”

Williams has been caddying for Scott part-time, usually at the main tournaments, for the past two years and full-time prior to that.

But it was Englishman David Clark, who was the other part of the arrangement, and was on Scott’s bag at the most recent major, the US PGA Championship.

Williams, 63, is close to retirement.

But he did agree to caddy for American Danielle Kang at the Women’s New Zealand Open last week, in what was his first venture into the women’s game.
