If you were looking for a good laugh to break the withering playoff tension bound to envelop Friday and Saturday's Tiger-Phil-Adam pairing at the Deutsche Bank Championship, Robert Lusetich has the story of Adam Scott looper Stevie Williams, new pal of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
Or so he says.
You may recall Stevie used a less than flattering bit of imagery while suggesting that he would like to insert something into Tiger. And with Phil he just went with the more succinct "prick" description.
The Stevie-Tiger make-up story started at Merion where Stevie says he sensed that his presence made Tiger "uncomfortable," so feeling the pain and concern for his former mate, decided at Muirfield during the final round--and what better time to chum it up than during a major final round--Stevie talked auto racing with Tiger on the 8th hole. Voila! They've been exchanging loving glances ever since.
“When I used to caddie for him I’d watch it at (their rented home) and after a while he started watching with me and getting into it.”
They engaged in small talk; as often is the case in such situations, the subject wasn’t important.
“He asked me how the family was and I did the same. We just talked, you know,” Williams said.
“At some point in time, I just felt we had to break the ice."
As for Phil, all Stevie said is they are "all good."
Call me skeptical...
