    With 150 wins to his name, Steve Williams is one of the most successful caddies of the modern era. From his modest start in freelancing his way around the world’s golf courses, he became a man in demand, working with some of the golfing world’s best. Greg Norman, Raymond Floyd, Terry Gale, Ian Baker-Finch, and Adam Scott all benefitted from the knowledge, experience, and honesty for which Williams is known.
    Williams is perhaps best known, however, for his triumphant thirteen years on the bag of Tiger Woods. Together, Woods and Williams won more than 80 tournaments—with 13 major championships among them.
    But it wasn’t all celebrations. Despite his best efforts, Williams could only watch as Woods fell from the podium, his game in decline—ignorant of the scandal about to make headlines around the world that would nearly ruin Tiger’s pro career.
    In this candid book, Williams tells the stories of golf’s elites that you won’t hear anywhere else—the highs and lows of their careers, and the critical role of a caddie in both spots.
    Bold and entertaining, his story offers a rare insider’s view of the professional golfing world.

About the Author:

Steve Williams is a professional caddy with a career spanning 36 years. In that time he has amassed 150 wins, among them 13 major championships on the bag of Tiger Woods. Away from the golf course, Williams has a strong association with motor racing, winning two New Zealand titles in 2005 and 2010. He continues to race saloon and super saloon cars. In 2001, Williams and his wife, Kirsty, set up the Steve Williams Foundation. As well as assisting junior golf and motor racing throughout New Zealand, the foundation has a close relationship with Starship Hospital in Auckland, and a primary focus on children’s health.

Review:

“Steve’s record has a caddy is greatest in the history of golf.”
—Hank Haney, Tiger Woods’ former coach
 
“Williams’ book is exceptional—original, comprehensive, enlightening, honest. For all his gruffness, he’s intelligent, insightful, frank, and on his subject, extremely knowing . . . An important golf book.”
Golf Digest
 
“From my observation, Williams was very good for Woods. He wasn’t scared to come in over the top and offer his boss advice, sometimes as late as when Woods was in midswing. He supported him, calmed him, encouraged him, bolstered his confidence.”
—Joseph Romanos, Kapiti Observer
 
“An easy day’s read, Out of the Rough is one for the Christmas list.”
Sunday Star Times, New Zealand
