Tiger Woods trashed his golf career over his sex addiction — and The ENQUIRER’s expose also wrecked his relationship with his loyal caddy!
Now Steve Williams is revealing some of Tiger’s dirtiest secrets in his new tell-all “Out Of The Rough,” with The ENQUIRER getting a first look at the manuscript!
Steve revealed he first learned of Tiger’s compulsive womanizing shortly after Tiger won the Australian Masters in 2009:
“As I was driving,” Steve wrote, “I got a text from [Tiger’s agent] Mark Steinberg which read, ‘There is a story coming out tomorrow. Absolutely no truth to it. Don’t speak to anybody.'”
That story was The ENQUIRER’s bombshell scoop on Tiger’s dalliances with Rachel Uchitel — and a frustrated Steve has made it clear he never knew about his boss cheating on wife Elin Nordegren.
“I didn’t know because Tiger didn’t dare tell me,” insisted Steve. “We had such a strong bond and working relationship that there was no way he could let me in on what was happening – he knew my values, and that I would have zero tolerance for that kind of behavior.”
Steve would soon learn that Mark Steinberg was once again trying to protect his powerful client, though — and wrote of how he kidded himself that The ENQUIRER was wrong in exposing Tiger’s infidelity.
“That all changed once Tiger slow-crashed his SUV into the fire hydrant just outside his house on Thanksgiving night,” revealed Steve. “He was fleeing an angry Elin, while dosed up on sleeping tablets, after she discovered he had been cheating on her. Before long, my phone wouldn’t stop ringing.”
“Out Of The Rough” also reveals Tiger’s terrifying temper, as Steve wrote about how his boss would frequently abuse him during a tournament — and would even spit on the golf green after missing a putt!
“One thing that really pissed me off was how he would flippantly toss a club in the general direction of the bag, expecting me to go over and pick it up,” Steve also wrote.
“I felt uneasy about bending down to pick up his discarded club — it was like I was his slave.”
“Out Of The Rough” arrives in bookstores today.
