Kind of funny that Scott is in the lead, with Stevie Williams as his caddy. He was sinking a lot of putts, I wonder if Williams was a big help with that..he knows the course very well. I can't stand how there is no morning coverage on Thurs/Fri, should at least be something online in the morning..

Fowler had a great round, tied for the lead at -8 now.

It's a constant uphill battle for Phil. Anxious to see who is for real this weekend. I'd like to see Fowler win, but I'm not sure if he's got "it" yet to win.

McIlroy lurking in the distance, too.

Caddies are normally not intereviewed by networks after a win. The ONLY reason anyone even gives 2 thoughts about Stevie is due to his association with Tiger. Too bad he couldn't just take the high road without taking a subtle dig at the man who made him relevant.

Little salt in the wounds there.

Can't wait for next week.

What a moron. Tiger Woods is the reason anyone knows his name, Tiger Woods was his meal ticket for a decade.

Steve Williams you're a caddy, just carry the bag and shut up.

Williams kind of comes off toolbagish to me. Sounds like he's bitter. I know he's pissed that he was let go, but the guy has to know this is a business as well.

Way to stoop down to Tiger's level Steve.... you're a freakin' caddie who happens to make more $$ than 99% of athletes. Shut your pie**** and be grateful you were on the gravy train for as long as you were.

Agreed..he said he "Wasted the last 2 years of his life"

Yea, with a net-worth of 30 million I'm sure it must have been an awful 2 years

Players fire caddies all the time so he should be glad he lasted for so long.

I honestly don't get how Williams is getting all this sympathy. Woods is in the worst 3 year stretch of his career, so he fired his caddy. It made perfect sense.
