Who’s the “high-profile” golfer laying bets on Steve Williams’ future?
Well the whole Steve Williams/Tiger Woods saga has hit an interesting juncture. Just after Robert Lusetich broke the news of Steve Williams’ plan to be on Tiger’s bag at the Masters, Geoff Shackelford found an interesting update to the story that should have many in the golf world talking.
As Shackelford pointed out, there seems to be a couple of people that seem to be “in the know” regarding Williams’ future with Woods. And one of them happen to be a high-profile golfer.
Let the madness begin.
A high-profile golfer has been laying bets that Williams would be axed and replaced with Billy Foster, a well-respected Englishman who caddies for Lee Westwood.
Foster, who said last week that he knew nothing of any such plan, filled in for Williams at the 2005 Presidents Cup so Williams could be with his wife, Kirsty, as she gave birth to their first son.
But Williams confirmed Sunday that he would be on Woods’ bag for his comeback tournament next month at Augusta National.
Not only is this golfer betting on Williams getting the axe, but he’s also probably got some inside information that would lead him to place such a wager. That’s akin to a close associate at work betting on you losing your job after hearing rumors of layoffs hitting the company. I just don’t see how this ends well if the players name is ever released.
Does this mean Stevie and Tiger are definitely on the way out? Probably not. But it seems very strange that a “high-profile” player (Considering gambling is illegal in the States, I’d assume he’s from Europe) would place bets on the looper’s future. There’s got to be more to this story, and I for one hope someone finds out what the hell is really going on.
