Scott reunites with former caddie Steve Williams
Adam Scott and Steve Williams are reuniting for another tilt at success following their separation in 2017.
According to a report in Golf Digest, the pair will be back together starting at this week’s Australian PGA Championship at Royal Queensland in Brisbane followed by the Australian Open in Melbourne next week.

From there, Hall Of Fame caddie Williams will share duties next year with Scott’s regular bagman, Greg Hearmon.
“For me it’s exciting to work again with Steve and see if we can rediscover the magic,” Scott told Golf Digest’s Evin Priest. “As a player, you experience different points in your career. Right now on the PGA Tour is a time of change, and I’m adjusting to it. Having Steve and Greg doing a job share is going to help me get everything I need and that’s to be fresh at the biggest events.”
There’s little wonder that Scott has turned to Williams. The soon-to-be 59-year-old has enjoyed tremendous success helping to capture 12 of Tiger Woods’ 15 major titles and the first ever Masters title for an Australian in 2013.
“My goal is to win majors; I had a good run with Steve in the majors and we did win the Masters, but it’s about getting an overall balance for what I need to perform in the biggest events,” said Scott. “Steve is at a point in his life where he’d like to have a dabble again, so to speak. It’s a good balance for him because it won’t be a full year’s grind.”
The duo will line up for the first time in five years beginning this Thursday at Brisbane’s Royal Queensland where Scott will be vying for his third Australian PGA Championship title.
