Adam Scott has lured Steve Williams out of retirement for four tournaments only.
Steve Williams was adamant that he would not be caddying in 2015 when he announced his split with Adam Scott in 2014. But Scott’s poor form has him desperate to reunite with Williams, the man who was on his bag when he won The 2013 Masters and when he rose to the world’s number one ranked golfer.
Since the split, Scott hasn’t won a golf tournament, had just the one top-10 finish in 2015 and slipped to number 12 in the world.
Current looper Mike Kerr will make way for Williams at the US Open, Open Championship, Bridgestone Invitational and US PGA Championships. No word on whether Kerr will return after Williams’ stint finished.
The official press release:
Adam Scott and Steve Williams have agreed to rekindle their working relationship for the next 4 events on Scott’s golfing schedule, the US Open, Open Championship, Bridgestone Invitational and US PGA Championships.
Scott and caddie Mike Kerr ended their time together last week, leaving Scott without an experienced bag man for the upcoming major events season, so he called Williams and coerced him out of retirement.
“Steve was adamant that he was not going to caddy in 2015, so he took some convincing, but I am very happy he’s agreed to help out”, Scott said. “We’ve had great success together, so I’m looking forward to being on the links with Steve again”.
The two last worked together at the Fed-Ex Cup play offs in September 2014, and were teamed up when Scott won the 2013 US Masters.
