The Dan Patrick Show: Golf Channel's Steve Sands thinks caddy Steve Williams helped Adam Scott, but the golfer played well enough this weekend to win without him - 8/8
Steve since covers the sport you don't chipper Jones and fired -- -- -- there and yeah -- I didn't know Stevie Williams won that event is that how the Golf -- covered it. I'm now I haven't got the lead the -- out of our league. The first World Golf Championship event will always trump whose caddie although I kind of agree with both the view I understand Robert pointed. Out like. Well I would say the people who think it's easy -- as me Adam a better golfer instantly was hey it didn't happen at the US open or the AT&T national. And beat when Tony Navarro was the caddie at the match he'd make a strong case -- -- what you with the players that at that at. Adam won the masters if not crucial Schwartz -- birdied the last four holes. Bad game becoming the first player to ever do that in the history of the masters Adam Scott played well enough to win that I got that when He was the -- up closing. Very well playing very well down the stretch under the gun on Sunday at the masters. How -- see what they would like you'd think he'd be helped a lot yesterday and the entire week -- He's not problematic -- He played well that would be did not -- at the US so ability PT national where He did not. What was it like though the fans -- -- Stevie Stevie. It that was brutal car -- it was I mean I. I would be dependable on the idea of seeing a lot of of really comical that you go on big golf that that cannot happen in other sports because the people are so close. To the performers. Publicly here. Thought that -- and yelling and screaming force feed more so that and I don't care if they were yelling more for him and Adam at least the people who work. Publishers enough to be heard so many others are you it was that's not really talks. If I say you could interview Adam Scott after the round on Sunday or Stevie Williams. Who would you take him. Well that mean you're talking I would say and god because I always think that the golf. The -- whoever. Whatever sport you're covering the main thing is the year on the athletes who win. What they actually loses or whatever the story they'd be -- bought his yesterday where he'd bail in the all day I mean there. All day. Thank you got it it's -- you got to just Stevie because it's a foregone conclusion that we're gonna get the winner of the partner in this case is gonna be out of god it was not a foregone conclusion. As to whether or not -- would speak it that all my bosses wanted to hear from. Looks easy but thankfully we we put it in the proper order or the proper context you heard from out of first and that you're from the caddie -- The big story again but I think the story can go away now baseball cooperate like T Kirk that because the local law. After twelve years or so working with tiger not speaking to anybody who are the ones you heard that He had the fate. Now let's go back and put things in proper context. Where the players the cellar and the caddies the person -- with him. You don't think this has legs going into the PGA championship and Atlanta. No I don't do that has legs a little -- -- away from the golf should Begin you know we covered scored 24/7. You know put it. You know for the rest of the sports world -- maybe today and I mean you know obviously the big story that you were you not on the show what you. For that reason and -- the other shows -- we'll obviously talk about it. Won't do it tonight and then on Wednesday he'll ratchet up again because tiger has discovered interestingly. Yesterday afternoon -- the hot meal that was interest in tiger always and I mean every kind of you know -- Should a big event coordinator -- chip on Tuesday. He moved to Wednesday perhaps that was to get an extra day in between all the nonsense between what happened yesterday. For the next at least until I do think it'll be. Ratcheted up again on. Wednesday morning when He speaks to the media for the first time of the PGA but before and after that I would imagine it would have a lot alike. Is Stevie Williams liked. Volume one and until yesterday -- I'll tell you that He He has He has not been a very popular figure. In the world of golf but I do think -- And it's just part but some people -- perhaps understand -- you know He got a job to deal in his job. In his loss. Who was it what it was mandated to him that He. She's itself. A certain way. And for all of us who have ever -- -- and I most people who it was string of those people who who work. Have -- and -- not run their own business or. Work for themselves they can understand that you have to abide by the rules are volatile years ago you wanna be -- You're never going to be real. So make sure you -- -- that they get paid to make those decisions -- -- basically do what you're told and try to do it as well again. He did that for 1213 years with the world's greatest player the time and I think it. He would -- a good opportunity. Now that the model taught that you will could take a couple shots and I and I expect that there might be more shot. That well but contrary to popular bigger and gave up until yesterday war in the last couple here and -- before He was not paid very well liked man in the sport. That you takeover target back.
