Steve Williams: Tiger Woods Treated Me Like a Slave: Bitter former Tiger Woods caddie Steve Williams has written a memoir in which he offers this specific complaint: "One thing that really pissed me off was how he would flippantly toss a club in the general direction of the bag, expecting me to go over and pick it up. I felt uneasy about bending down to pick up his discarded club, it was like I was his slave." Williams made an estimated $6 million in the job he compares to slavery.

He was also NZ's highest paid sportsman for all of those years.

(A bit like being the tallest dwarf, but you know what I mean)

Maybe we should set up a youcaring fundraiser for poor Steve to assist with the long term emotional therapy he requires.

I thought we were done hearing from Steve the eternal victim, but apparently not.

Interesting that Williams feels badly for Tiger having to sort out his personal problems in public but has no reservation about continuing to blabber his own whiny tales of woe which help perpetuate the gossip and scrutiny.

I hear that Jose Bautista is looking for a mid-life English speaking batboy.

Poor Stevie. Millionaire caddie feels like a slave because he has to go pick up a golf club. Go ask some West Virginia coal miners for a shoulder to cry on. Better yet, go carry a bag and shutup.
