Woods' Kiwi caddie stands by his employer

Posted By: Staff

Wellington (New Zealand), Dec.13 (ANI): Golfing great Tigers Woods' long-time caddie Steve Williams has said he has no plans of abandoning his long-term employer any time soon, and added that he would be there when Woods is ready to play again.

"I am committed to him. I understand he needs a break to sort his personal stuff out. And, I will be there for him when he wishes to return to play," The Telegraph quoted him as telling the New Zealand's Sunday News.

Woods has taken an indefinite break from the game having admitted to infidelity in his marriage. Tiger just said he needs a break and I don't want to put any pressure on the guy," added Williams, who has caddied for Woods since 1999, including 13 of his 14 major victories.

"He will know in his mind, and his family will know in their mind, when it is the right time for him to return to playing golf," he told the newspaper.

"He will have the right people counselling him and between the people that counsel him, his wife and his immediate friends, when he is ready to come back he will be ready to come back."

The New Zealander said that while he and Woods were good friends off the course, they did not spend much time together outside of the weeks he was competing. (ANI)
