Tiger Woods and former caddie end feud

The messy public spat between Tiger Woods and his former caddie, Steve Williams, is apparently over after Williams publicly announced on the eve of the Deutsche Bank Championship that "time heals all wounds."

At the end of the Open Championship in July, Williams had moved to approach the 14-time major winner and shake hands, actions then speaking louder than words.

The statement issued by Williams underlines that any feud that exists is now over.

"I was very hurt by what happened with Tiger," Williams said. "Hurt and very disappointed. I think it could’ve been handled differently ... But it’s been a couple of years and, as I said, time has a way of healing.”

New Zealander Williams has been Woods' caddie since 1999, and saw him win 13 of his 14 majors. At one stage Williams was reported to be New Zealand’s highest earning sportsman, taking 10% of Wood’s earnings and also sponsorship deals for himself.

At the time of Williams dismissal over two years ago, the Kiwi caddie said he was hurt and upset by the move.

"After years of loyal service needless to say this came as a shock."

"Given the circumstances of the past 18 months working through Tiger's scandal, a new coach and with it a major swing change and Tiger battling through injuries, I am very disappointed to end our very successful partnership at this time."

Now working together with fellow Antipodean Adam Scott, Williams has forged another successful team; the Australian winning The Masters at Augusta earlier this year.
