Tiger Woods hired Joe LaCava as the third full-time caddie of his golf career, turning to a U.S. PGA Tour veteran who spent 20 years working for Fred Couples before joining Dustin Johnson briefly this season.
Tiger Woods, wearing a red shirt and black pants, flexed his right arm and unleashed an uppercut as the ball tumbled into the hole on the 16th green. He let out a wide-mouthed roar that was matched by the crowd.
Wearing the gold winner’s medal around his neck and hoisting the silver U.S. Open trophy over his head, Webb Simpson continued a trend in major golf championships with his win at San Francisco’s Olympic Club.
Tiger Woods said he accepted an apology from Steve Williams over comments the golfer’s former caddie made last week at an awards dinner, adding that he doesn’t consider the New Zealander to be a racist.
