NEXT! Six possible caddies for Tiger

Steve Williams’ departure means Tiger’s in need of a new sidekick. We’ve come up with a list of six people the great man would be crazy not to audition for the job.

WE SHOULD HAVE had an inkling their bromance was on the rocks when Tiger cleared Stevie to see other players, but yesterday evening’s announcement seems to have thrown everyone for a loop.

Was the thought of Stevie with another man just too much for Tiger?

Or was Williams’ famous loyalty – that had seen him wrest many’s a camera from startled crowdmembers - just too compromised post-Tigergate to ever allow the pair a way back?

Jealousy, commitment issues: it’s a sad end to a glorious partnership. But we can’t dwell on the break-up; it’s time to move on.

We’ve been wracking our brains in search of six candidates deserving of a place in Tiger’s shadow.

NEXT! Six possible caddies for Tiger
1 / 5
  • 1. Charlie Sheen

    Without a win in two years, Tiger needs to get back into the habit. What better way to do it than to spend time with a man who's turned winning into a way of life?
  • 2. Rebekah Brooks

    Leaked texts and voicemails did Tiger's public image untold damage. Sympathy mightn't be her forte, but in Brooks he might just find a shoulder to cry on.
  • 3. Ray Sefo

    If Stevie was the highest paid sportsman in New Zealand, how about going for number two: K1 kickboxing's Ray Sefo.
  • 4. Zach Galifianakis

    Whatever happens at the World Golf Championships stays at the World Golf Championships.
  • 5. John Hayes

    With a less hectic schedule these days, the Bull wouldn't make a bad employee. He's loyal, can lift things all day and would make short work of those pesky photographers.
