Tiger Woods Fires Caddie Steve Williams

Tiger Woods has fired Steve Williams, his caddie of the last 12 years, saying that the time has finally come to make a change.

"I want to express my deepest gratitude to Stevie for all his help, but I think it's time for a change," Woods said. "Stevie is an outstanding caddie and a friend and has been instrumental in many of my accomplishments. I wish him great success in the future." (via ESPN)

Woods is still recuperating from left knee injuries and has not played since The Players Championship in May, which he ultimately withdrew from. Woods finished fourth in The Masters and 10th in the World Golf Championship - Cadillac Championship back in March. It is not known who Woods will hire to replace Williams.
