Stevie is a legend in his own mind...he needs to be reminded that he did not win a single tournament-much less 14 majors... Since Stevie revels in receiving awards... Adam Scott should g

i think it qualifies as racism, albeit vaguely.  my thinking on it is, okay, when you're mad (as stevie obviously is) and you're talking smack about the person who made you mad, you aren't going to us

There was a great sledge from the gallery at the Aussie Open yesterday: "Hey Adam! You gonna put a muzzle on that sheep, mate?"

Disappointing why?  Because of your belief that any comment made toward a person of color must be an indicator of racism?  If you refer to your asian friend as the as the "bald guy", does that make you a racist?  If you describe the girl you slept with after last year's company Christmas party as the "fat chick" does that make you a sexist?  Your ignorance isn't excused by a holier than thou attitude.  This is a non-story, and the best evidence of that comes from the people who interact the closest with Williams himself.  Adam Scott doesn't believe Williams is racist.  Neither does Tiger Woods.  These people know him a damn sight better than any of us.

There's a difference between making a racist comment and calling someone a racist.  If Tiger or Scott called Williams a racist they'd be sued for slander unless they had sufficient proof to back up their statement so it's unlikely anyone would make such an accusation.  That doesn't mean that Tiger or Scott don't consider the use of the word "black" that Stevie used to describe Tiger as a racist comment.

Outside of golf but still relevant Brett Ratner was forced to resign as producer of the Oscars for making an anti-gay slur, he said "rehearsal is for fags".  Does that mean Ratner is anti-gay or did he just slip and use an offensive term.  Hollywood and the Oscars committee didn't seem to care and pressured him to resign.

He's not a racist. But he is an idiot who ran his mouth way outta control trying to be edgy and funny. For the record I think Scott should sack his ass for bringing the game into disrepute. The minute a caddie gets more attention - be it at the side of a green after his boss just won or in a private session which he knows will go public - than the player, is the time to tell him cheerio.

No, there really isn't.  Now I am not saying Williams is going to put a white sheet on and go out lynching blacks.  There are degrees of racism.  But you don't go where he went in his comments without having that inside you - and that is what racism is..

One could find that comment to also be very inappropriate and offensive, as sheep is a derogatory name for a New Zealander. Though, as you call it a sledge I guess its not insulting at all anymore...  And he said mate afterwards...

I demand this guy to be hauled through the media and shamed!

Even when his new boss is the reigning Masters champion, it's fair to say Steve Williams is still more of a draw as Tiger Woods' spurned former caddie. At least that would explain his guest appearance on Australia's Fox Sports' Golf Show this week , in which the veteran caddie says he and the world No. 1 are still not on the chummiest of terms.

"I haven't sorted anything out with him," Williams said. "There's been a lot of . . . this, that and the other . . .  but the hatchet hasn't been buried."

    • Still no wedges! Jeez i am past 10 weeks on those now
    • Lol. Yeah well I’ve succumbed to just living with them. I’d rather quit than use all hybrids. Just can’t do it. If I have to hit a long putt…like 50+ feet….yeah, yeah I’m Sure I could shank a putt.    Imagine if someone completely covered your club head with lead tape into a ball. Then took all the markings off the grip. Then at the top of your back swing the lead tape comes off and you’re expected to hit the ball squarely. That’s how much feel I have for the club head. Be it a short chip or a full swing. Zero natural talent. 
    • Long second shot from the rough over water to a front pin ... with trees in the way I think?  Onto the green was unlikely, maybe I could see trying to hit it over the green or maybe into the bunker for that chance to hole out instead of a full swing.
    • How do you get the distance right?  I can get on GG the distance I hit the first putt, but not necessarily how far out I am.
    • It wasn’t a particularly good lie, either. I believe that’s what they said on the broadcast. I think he made the right play. What he needed to do was not put himself in a situation where he needed to eagle the final hole to tie.
