This week Tiger has experienced another big change in his life, firing his long time caddie Stevie Williams. That makes in the last two years Tiger has lost his wife, encountered more injury problems, lost his squeaky clean public image and now his caddie. However, none of these are why Tiger is not winning. He lost his confidence, he no longer feels unbeatable when he steps on a course, and now others aren’t afraid of him. Now firing the caddie that has helped you win 13 majors may not be the brightest move but a new voice may be needed. We see that strategy all the time in baseball, basketball and football. So why can’t it apply here? Stevie wasn’t going to be the special elixir that brought him out of his slump, so no harm no foul. Now if you want to speak upon Tiger and his loyalty being lost, well that’s our fault for thinking he had any. I’ve never thought of Tiger and Stevie as friends, but as people that since they work together they’ve are more than associates, but not quite friends. Hence it should be no surprise that Stevie plans to write a book, and the chapters on Tiger will be as heavy as a 6 ton gorilla. That’s not something that a ‘friend’ would do. So for all the whining Stevie is doing about loyalty and wasting 2 years of his life, where’s his loyalty to Tiger. I’ll always say this, in big money situations most people will have no loyalty to any person, only their wallet, and family. Example, Stevie could have as easily bitched out Tiger face to face, on the phone, and left it at that. However he chose to go on television vent his feelings, and mention how he plans to write a book. Are these actions of loyalty? Nope, therefore let’s just assume this. Both Tiger and Stevie have no loyalty to each other. Thus Tiger fired Stevie to get a new voice and leave behind anyone that was associated with his past good or bad. Stevie is bitter because he’s no longer with the most lucrative golfer and will most likely not make the same money he did before. Moral of the story… Do your dirt by yourself so there are no witnesses, and remember its business, never personal.
