No sooner had Tiger Woods cut his 12 year association with his New Zealand based caddy, Stevie Williams, than an important legal issue arose over caddies' rights to their 'little black book', the bible that lists yardages on every course, and restricted phone numbers for off the links entertainment.
With Williams now 'on the bag' for 31 year old Australian Adam Scott, the Caddy Union says all information gathered by a caddy remains the property of the golfer's employee, as he is the one who gathered the information, walking all the courses, checking out late night watering holes, and recording all pertinent and intimate information.
Insiders within the PGA said Williams 'had one of the best books on the tour,' and it was a major reason Tiger remained 'on top' for so long, both on and off the links.
"Any young single golfer coming up would give up almost anything to have Stevie for his Caddy," said former PGA star John Daly. "If Stevie had been my caddy I could have stayed out of a lot of trouble and most of my marriages...I even coulda been a contenda' instead of turning into the bozo I've become!"
Williams has remained tight lipped on the subject, saying only, "all my data gathered on the links regarding yardages, slopes, and the direction of grass on the greens, will be used to help Adam raise his standing on the PGA. As far as my Social Networking information, that remains off limits until such time as I decide to write my book."
While Williams says writing his golf thriller is still aways off, he does have a tentative title;
"The Perfect Threesome: How to Tell the difference between a Shank and a Skank."
Stay tuned for the upcoming legal battle!
