Tiger Woods announced on Wednesday that he will no longer be working with caddie Steve Williams. The split ends their twelve year partnership which saw Tiger win thirteen of his fourteen major championships.

The official statement from Tiger's website says:

"I want to express my deepest gratitude to Stevie for all his help, but I think it's time for a change. Stevie is an outstanding caddie and a friend and has been instrumental in many of my accomplishments. I wish him great success in the future."

Williams posted an update on his website that reads:

"After thirteen years of loyal service needless to say this came as a shock. However, given the circumstances of the past eighteen months working through Tiger's scandal, a new coach and with it a major swing change and Tiger battling through injuries I am very disappointed to end our very successful partnership at this time. I have had the opportunity to work of late for Australian Adam Scott and will now caddy for him on a permanent basis."

Tiger may want to take his time in deciding who Williams replacement will be, seeing as how most golf experts believe he is one of the greatest caddies of all-time.
