DUSTIN JOHNSON SAYS there is no friction between him and fellow American Tiger Woods after losing his caddie to the former No. 1.

Joe LaCava left the fifth-ranked Johnson on Sunday to become Woods’ full-time caddie.

Johnson says “I spoke to Tiger about it. There’s no hard feelings at all.”

Johnson says Keith Sbarbaro, vice president of his club makers TaylorMade, will carry his bag for the rest of the year. He said he has “quite a few caddies wanting the job” to replace LaCava.

Johnson is playing the Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland, where he shot a 1-under 71 in the first round on Thursday.
