Sacked caddie lashes Tiger Woods

WELLINGTON - TIGER Woods' sacked caddie Steve Williams said Friday he had lost respect for the former world number one and felt he had wasted two years of his life loyally standing by the scandal-plagued golfer.
Woods announced this week that he has parted company with New Zealander Williams, his caddie for 12 years - a period when Woods won 13 of his 14 majors.
Williams said his sacking was poor reward for staying loyal to Woods after the golfer's November 2009 car crash which opened the door to revelations about his extra-marital affairs and triggered a slide down the world rankings.
'Realistically, I could look back and say I've wasted the last two years of my life because he's played infrequently, he's been injured and he's played poorly,' Williams told the New Zealand Herald.
'I was prepared to hang in there through thick and thin, so I found the timing extraordinary.' Williams said he told Woods after the 2009 scandal broke that he had lost respect for the golfer and that it needed to be earned back.
But he said his opinion of Woods had sunk further following his dismissal. 'Whatever respect he may have earned back, he's just lost,' he told the newspaper. -- AFP
