Four times a winner
at Augusta National
The Last Word On The 77th Masters
By Torleif Sorenson on 4/19/13
Steve Williams, who caddied for Adam Scott at the Masters last week and has since kept a low profile since Sunday night. But perhaps in a show of provincial favoritism, the Wellington native gave a gracious and fascinating 15-minute interview to New Zealand's 3 News upon arriving at Auckland Airport on Wednesday. Among his comments about Scott was this:
"To be part of someone's dream... Adam's dreamt of winning the Masters since he was a kid... to see the emotions that poured out of him on Sunday was just amazing. It was great to be part of.

"Adam Scott's one of those players who's been touted as one of the best players in the world [to] have not won a major. And one of the sole reasons I went to work for Adam is to see if we could get over that hump with him. He's a friend of mine and wanted me to help him out."
Williams then said that Scott will be the last player for whom he caddies and plans to work until the end of 2014, cutting back to a limited schedule after that. But before he does that, Scott apparently owes Williams an appearance at his homeland's national championship:
"When I went to work for Adam, I said that if you win a major championship whilst I'm caddying for you, part of the deal is that you've got to come and play in the New Zealand Open."
The video is also worth seeing due in part to Williams' analysis of the Tiger-dropping at 15 on Friday.

he gives a good interview. also, if the airport in New Zealand is that mellow where a famous local can give a 15-minute interview in the middle of it with only a low hum of background noise and without idiots waving in the background, that's a place I'd like to visit.

The link seems to be broken though...

Steve should obey the caddy code. Show up. keep up and shut up.
