Tiger's Caddie: How Could You Fire Me?!?!?

7/20/2011 1:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's the latest in a long string of celebrity break-ups -- Tiger Woods and his longtime caddie Steve Williams have called it quits after 13 years ... but Steve says he's shocked by the move, especially because he stuck with Tiger throughout his mistress mayhem scandal.

Tiger just announced the split on his website, writing, "I want to express my deepest gratitude to Stevie for all his help, but I think it's time for a change ... I wish [Steve] great success in the future."

So far, no replacement has been named.

But now, Steve has fired back -- saying, "After 13 years of loyal service needless to say this came as a shock. Given the circumstances of the past 18 months working through Tiger's scandal, a new coach and with it a major swing change ... I am very disappointed to end our very successful partnership at this time."

0720-steve-60-minutes-vidSteve -- who caddied for Tiger since 1999 -- famously gave an interview to "60 Minutes" after news broke about Tiger's cheating scandal, denying he ever knew anything about the golf legend's affairs.

Tiger is a snake

He harbored feelings and he waited until it was the right time to can em

He smiled in his face past year and in the back of his mind strategized against him just like he strategized cheating against his wife

Tiger you're trash
NOW I definitely lost ALL respect for you son

What's interesting now is your time of being on top is soon coming to an end.

Peace

Well if Tiger couldn't be loyal to his WIFE - what makes this guy think he'd be loyal to him?!?

He had a longer relationship with Tiger than anyone else has (or ever will) except for maybe Tiger's parents...

YOU SAID IT YOURSELF......" not to mention Tiger has no wins in how long?"

How much money did TYGER earn last year from his NO wins show? maybe $60...0,000.00??????

.....for NORMAL PEOPLE, 600k in money is a lot, but if you have to payoff HUSH MONEY to your old girlfiends, plus deservedly payoff your EX-WIFE, AND you're used to a LAVISH lifestyle, 600k is CHUMP CHANGE... which is fine because chump is the kindest word I would use for to describe "THE ONE WHO LOST IT ALL"

Bet heavy ....sleep in the streets...

By the way I loved watching Tiger play golf......he was the best...

operative word............ WAS!


Is he broke ? no ..... but he is BROKEN

I THINK THAT TIGER IS LOSING IT. HE FIRED HIS LAST CADDIE BECAUSE HE TALKED TO ESPN I HOPE THAT HE COMES BACK AND GETS HIS A$$ KICKED IN EVERY TOURNAMENT HE PLAYS IN.
AT LEAST HE IS GETTING BACK THE HUSH MONEY FROM HO*BAG # 1 RACHEL

I would have dumped Williams a long time ago.

He's got a big mouth.

He's a caddy - not a mentor.

He forgots that.

Tiger should be congratulated for giving Williams time to hook
up with someone else.

Very generous of Tiger -

Also forgiving -

Tiger's learning the lessons we all once learned -

Who our true friends are.
