Adam Scott’s big decisions

2014 09 120607678

Adam Scott and caddie Steve Williams declared an end to their three year partnership yesterday. In that time, the pair achieved more than their fair share of success, with Scott rising to world No.1 and claiming his first major title.


It is believed that New Zealander Williams wants to begin caddying on a part-time basis, something that Scott’s schedule doesn’t lend itself to.

“After discussing this in detail with Adam it became evident that my plan was not going to fit with Adam's requirements and so we decided to end our partnership,” Williams said in a statement.

Adam Scott and Steve Williams over the years


2011 US Open

Adam Scott teamed up with Williams in the summer of 2011 at the US Open at Congressional. Williams was still officially on the bag for Tiger Woods. However, the American was injured and not able to compete. Scott missed the cut by two-shots, and at the time was ranked 21st in the world.

The first event that the pair won together. Scott won the Firestone contest by four-shots, giving Williams his eighth victory at the world golf championship. “I have won 145 times and that is the best win of my life,” Williams controversially said immediately after. “A lot has been said this week and it is great to back it up.”

2011 Presidents Cup

Billed as Woods v Williams, the former partners lined up against each other with bad blood over their split lingering. Adam Scott and KJ Choi thrashed Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker 7&6, the largest winning margin the event had seen.

2012 Open Championship

141st Open Championship - Final Round

In the final round at Royal Lytham & St Annes, Scott looked certain to claim his first major crown after a birdie on the 14th. However, disaster struck as he bogeyed the final four holes losing out to Ernie Els by a shot.

2013 Masters

The Aussie recovered from the heartbreak of the 2012 Open in 2013’s first major, winning the Masters - his first major championship - after a play-off with Angel Cabrera. The win was Williams’ 15th major triumph.

As well as having to cope without the man who has been by his side during the most successful spell in his career, as of 2016, Adam Scott will be forced to change his putter in accordance with new regulations.

The 34-year-old rolls his putts using a broom-handle model. This falls into the category of anchoring the putter, something that will no longer be permitted as of January 1 2016.

Only time will tell as to how big an impact this shake-up has on the world No.2’s game. Although, you can’t help but think he would rather Steve Williams was by his side as he looks ahead.
