In the first event both Tiger Woods and his former caddy Steve Williams participated in since the caddy got the boot, Williams’ earnings dwarfed Woods’.With Williams as his caddy, Tiger’s golf earnings topped $80 million which helped line Williams’ pockets with a lot of money. But this weekend, Tiger finished 37th at the Bridgestone Invitational, and it was Williams’ new boss that took home the trophy.
Woods’ take for his 1-over par score was $58,500, which means his new caddy earned less than $10,000 for the four days hauling Tiger’s clubs and guarding against evil fans that have the nerve to take a picture of Tiger.
Meanwhile, Adam Scott took home a winner’s purse of $1.4 million. The caddy’s cut is 10%, which means Williams took home $140,000, more than twice Tiger’s winnings.
Maybe that is why Williams called this victory the “best win” of his career.
