Williams continues to race
Tiger Woods , to give
the season-opening Mercedes Championship in Hawaii starting on January
5 a miss.
This will allow Williams to continue racing his saloons and super saloons in New Zealand for a while longer, as he'll be doing in Palmerston North tonight.
"I was very lucky he didn't play it last year because that was the weekend of the New Zealand super saloon champs," said Williams.
"It was the first time I had raced it and I won it."
Williams's left wrist has repaired itself after he tore ligaments when he rolled his super saloon at Bay Park at Mt Maunganui at Labour Weekend and his thumb was caught in the steering wheel.
For three tournaments, he had to caddie with a cast on his hand and, as he pointed out, a caddie virtually needs three hands when it rains.
"I have had three very successful players and at the end of the day it's what I do," said Williams, whose other players were Raymond Floyd and Greg Norman.
"Caddying has become a very big business, a difficult field to get into but I've always said, nothing is impossible."
Williams lugs a bag weighing 18kg so it pays to be fit, not that it has ever affected him.
"We work in extreme conditions and we follow the sun all year round," he said.
Tiger Woods is arguably the best player golf has seen and Williams has the best seat in the house.
"That would be a great time to bow out."
"Tiger Woods hit a 3-iron out of a fairway trap onto the green, 210 yards up hill into the wind over a high lip and over pine trees. He didn't have a proper stance in the bunker."
Williams rates the second best Tiger Woods shot as the blast out of a bunker and over water to beat Manawatu's Grant Waite at the 2000 Canadian Open.
