He said Tiger will be "very cautious" when he does return to the sport, since he's currently taking an 'indefinite' leave amidst the huge affair ordeal. Williams said he feels bad for the guy.
Steve Williams and Tiger Woods (Getty) Williams said (via the Guardian): "I feel deeply sorry for the guy. In the 10 years I have caddied for this guy, he has been thoroughly gracious with the media. He has never not committed himself to the media. He's been great and he makes one mistake and they run all over the guy. I think he will be very cautious with the media when he comes back, and rightfully so."
Williams also thinks Tiger will definitely be back to the sport, once things settle down and he's regained the trust of his family, and his fans. He said: "I think that's important, I think they will heal a lot people's … or change a lot of people's perspective of it. Tiger is human. We all make mistakes in life."
The whole Tiger affair scandal started when he got into a one-car crash outside his Florida mansion around 2am November 27. Rumors spread that the accident was a result of the golf pro's wife Elin Nordegren coming after his SUV with a golf club after she found out about his infidelity, and things have rapidly spiraled downward since then.
We almost need to start counting the alleged mistresses on our toes now, as Rachel Uchitel, Jaimee Grubbs, Kalika Moquin, Jamie Jungers, Mindy Lawton, Cori Rist, and Holly Sampson, Joslyn James, Loredana Jolie, and Julie Postle. have all been romantically linked to the guy over the last few weeks. And the list just keeps growing.
