Tiger Woods' former caddie Steve Williams is coming out of retirement to caddie for Jason Day at the U.S Open
Steve Williams – who was on the bag of Tiger Woods for 13 of his 15 major titles – is set to come out of retirement to caddie for Jason Day at the U.S Open at Pebble Beach this week.
According to Golf Channel, Day and Williams were spotted together at Pebble on Saturday, and the former World No.1 later confirmed the pairing for the third major of the year.
Williams, who also caddied for Adam Scott during his 2013 Masters victory, retired from caddying in 2017 but will now be hoping to add another major accolade to his name with the World No.16. And it’s a place he knows well. After all, Willams helped Woods to his record breaking U.S Open victory here in 2000 – when he won by 15 strokes.
Day, who has had longtime friend Luke Reardon on the bag since 2017, refused to comment on whether the move to have Williams as his caddie could be a permanent one, but Williams has stepped up for the likes of Danielle Kang, Ryan Fox and others, for one off tournaments in the past year.
Searching for his first victory since the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship, Jason Day is coming in to this major with a mixed bag of results this season, though he did finish T5 at the Masters and was T4 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am earlier this year.
