You know that part at the end of Wizard of Oz when the voice booms over everything? In the golf world, that is Tiger Woods, except it isn't some little man coming out from behind the curtain (Tiger has more muscles).
Tiger's caddy, Steve Williams, made some rather interesting remarks on the second most famous golfer in the land, Phil Mickelson, this past week, going as far as calling Lefty a pr**k and saying he hates him. Mickelson's response was extremely mature and handled as well as he could have -- "All I could think of was how lucky I am to have a class act like Bones (his caddie, Jim Mackay) on my bag and representing me."
Now, Tiger's voice reigns over them all, speaking for the first time publicly about the incident concerning his caddy.
"I was disappointed to read the comments attributed to Steve Williams about Phil Mickelson, a player that I respect," Woods said in a statement Monday. "It was inappropriate. The matter has been discussed and dealt with."
Alright, very Tiger. He said something without really saying anything.
