Adam Scott says his caddie's racial slur against former boss Tiger Woods was taken out of context and was not a distraction. Scott showed his focus in the final hour of the HSBC Champions on Saturday to charge back into contention.
Steve Williams was given the ''Celebration of the Year'' at the caddies' award party Friday night. In a night full of banter, Williams says his TV interview after Scott won at Firestone was done to ''shove it right up that black a------.''
Scott says the comments at the private party were not meant to leave the room. He says Williams' apology should be accepted.
On the golf course, Fredrik Jacobson stayed in front at this World Golf Championship with a 5-under 67, giving him a two-shot lead over Louis Oosthuizen, who had a 68. Scott finished birdie-birdie-eagle for a 69 to stay three shots behind.

Months ago, when Tiger Woods decided to fire his current caddie, Steve Williams, after all the turmoil the two had gone through the previous 18 months, blame was tossed Tiger's way. People didn't understand how you could let go of such a loyal employee right when things seemed to be somewhat back to normal. Williams was obviously the victim.
But nearly three months ago, when...
Fellow golf legend Nick Faldo says Tiger Woods' mental domination is finished and he is potentially a weak link in the American Presidents Cup team competing in Melbourne, Australia, in two weeks' time.
Faldo, a six-time major championship winner, told GolfChannel.com Thursday that the changes and injuries Woods had endured since his most recent win, at the 2009 JBWere Masters...
Oh boy. Tiger Woods' ex-caddie, Steve Williams was asked at a dinner in China about Adam Scott's win at Firestone. He got all Tigery:

Tiger Woods' former caddie took a racially-charged shot at his old boss during an awards roast in Shanghai, then apologized the next day.

While Tiger Woods bears the brunt of Steve Williams' insensitive comments earlier this week, you could argue that the biggest victim of all this is Adam Scott. The Australian golfer who is having a fantastic season with Williams on the bag will most likely have to make some decision once the HSBC Champions wraps up after his caddie dropped racist remarks about Woods.
Tiger Woods says he's ready to return to top form after shaking off injuries that have undermined his performance for the last two years. The former world No. 1 told reporters in Singapore that he has been practicing frequently at home and getting his playing instincts back.
