Adam Scott: Will Tiger Woods or Steve Williams Win Another Major 1st?
The Bridgestone Invitational may have been won by Adam Scott, but it was all about Steve Williams. It didn’t take long for Tiger Woods’ former caddie to find work after Woods fired him after they competed together for over a decade. Even though one is a golfer and the other is a caddie, the two may end up forming the biggest rivalry on the PGA Tour.
Rory McIlroy looked like he could replace Phil Mickelson as Woods’ big rival earlier this year. I highly doubt Tiger cares who the media pegs as his nemesis, but Williams sounds like he wants the tension. In an interview following Scott’s victory, Williams told the press that it “was the best week of his life”.
After winning 13 majors with Tiger, it’s obvious what the caddy was doing. There was no sincerity in his reaction to the victory whatsoever; he wants revenge. The question is: can Williams, I mean Adam Scott, win a major before Tiger does?
Scott has 19 professional wins including seven on the PGA Tour, but he’s never won a major. He has come close though as he finished second in the Masters earlier this year and also third in the PGA Championship back in 2006. At 31-years old, he isn’t an up and comer bound to win eventually, but it’d be foolish to count out the player ranked 17th in the world.
I wouldn’t bet money on him beating Tiger to a major victory, but he does have more momentum at this point. A Scott win would give him his first major, but again, Williams would steal the headline. The quote he’d blurt out would be a classic.
According to CNBC’s Darren Rovell, Williams will make over 80 thousand dollars this weekend compared to Tiger who will take home around 50 thousand. So far, Williams is winning the rivalry, but we’ll see who gets the last laugh.
