Adam Scott spoke out about his role in the Tiger WoodsSteve Williams breakup after posting a first-round 62 with Williams on his bag at the Bridgestone yesterday.Scott told NBC Sports:

This kind of thing happens on the tour. It happens a lot every year with everyone, and just because it’s Tiger and Steve, I’m not going to treat it like it’s anything different than anyone else going through this. … I hope it’s not going to be awkward. I don’t have a problem, but if [Tiger] has a problem, then he can definitely tell me.

The Aussie said he has tried to stay out of the melodrama:

To be honest, I haven’t really been following it. I don’t really care. It’s not my business. … He’s dealing with it the way he wants to deal with it. He’s a big boy. He can handle it.

Williams first caddied for Scott when Tiger dropped out of the U.S. Open with an injury.

After Tiger fired him two weeks ago, the miffed Williams signed on with Scott full time.

Scott holds the lead at the Bridgestone with -8. Tiger is six back at -2.
