WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) - Steve Williams says he wasted the last two years of his life standing by Tiger Woods through injuries and eruptions in the golfer's private life.
In frank interviews about his dismissal published Friday, the 47-year-old caddie said he had lost "a tremendous amount of respect" for the game's biggest star.
Williams told the New Zealand Herald "realistically I could look back, and I've wasted the last two years of my life because he's played infrequently, he's been injured and played poorly."
"I was prepared to hang in there through thick and thin so I find the timing extraordinary."
