Golfers never really retire, and, apparently, neither do caddies. At least the great ones.
Steve Williams is back caddying this week at the 2018 AT&T Byron Nelson at Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas, and he's on the bag for an Aussie. No, not Adam Scott. He's working with Aaron Baddeley this week, according to Golfweek.
Williams is probably best known for his long run working with Tiger Woods, having been on the bag for 13 of Tiger's 14 major titles. However, Williams has also looped for the likes of Raymond Floyd and Greg Norman. Williams said this will be his final year of caddying before riding off into the sunset, based on a conversation he had with Aussie broadcaster (and occasional GNN contributor) Rod Morri.
Prior to this week in Dallas, the last known time Williams visibly caddied for a pro was in his homeland of New Zealand last September. He was on the bag for Women's PGA Champion Danielle Kang at the inaugural McKayson New Zealand Women's Open.
It's unclear if this is a one-week deal or part of a short-term engagement. However, we do know Williams hasn't been angling to pick up a full-time bag, as he stopped working with Adam Scott when their on-again-off-again relationship around the biggest tournaments became untenable for the 2013 Masters winner.
