OMG! Steve Williams Hurls Racist Remark at Tiger
What could Steve Williams have possibly been thinking?
Button your lip, Stevie, please!
Steve Williams, Tiger Woods' caddy for 12 years, during which Tiger won 13 major golf championships, was given a 'tongue-in-cheek' award the other evening for the 'year's best celebration', a reference to his remark after new employer Adam Scott's victory at the Bridgestone Invitational Golf Tournament, which Williams said "was the best win of my career." Asked what the celebration was all about, Williams said: "It was my aim to shove it right up that black asshole." His comment was reacted to by shock and amazement among the players and golf writers at the ceremony. According to Britain's Daily Mail, one caddie said: "Never have you been in a room and seen so many jaws drop at the same time. We knew he was an idiot but we didn't know he was a racist idiot. I was standing next to a European tour official who said, 'Thank God he is not on our tour.'"
Woods accepts Williams apology
Tiger, in Australia for a tournament, said that he and Williams met yesterday and ironed things out. He said he knew Williams was not a racist and added that Williams had apologized to him personally.
