Steve Williams, Tiger Woods' former caddie, has once again spoken candidly about his relationship with the golfer, this time in his autobiography, Out of the Rough.

In particular, he wrote about some of Woods' behavior on the course. 

"One thing that really pissed me off was how he would flippantly toss a club in the general direction of the bag, expecting me to go over and pick it up," Williams wrote, per Ewan Murray of the Guardian. "I felt uneasy about bending down to pick up his discarded club. It was like I was his slave. The other thing that disgusted me was his habit of spitting at the hole if he missed a putt."

Williams, who caddied for Woods for 13 years during the golfer's prime years, also wrote about his disappointment in the superstar for his infamous sex scandal. Williams was also angry Woods didn't immediately make it clear that the caddie had nothing to do with covering up his various affairs, leading to Williams "being dragged through the wringer over a scandal I had nothing to do with."

"I didn't have any sympathy for him over what he'd done," he wrote. "I believe you're in charge of your own actions, and I have no sympathy for people who get addicted to drugs or gambling or sex. People make choices in their lives, and he had chosen to do this.

"But I did have sympathy for the way he'd had to suffer in front of the world when others would have been able to sort out their mess in private."

Williams retired at the end of the 2014 season, though he did return for a portion of the 2015 season to serve as Adam Scott's caddie. Woods, meanwhile, has continued to struggle in his post-scandal career, failing to win a tournament in 2015 and managing just one top-10 finish.
