Kiwi bag carrier Steve Williams gets an undue amount of publicity for a golf caddie.
A flair for shooting his mouth off, then saying sorry, helps explain what gets him into the headlines.
His latest indiscretion has been to call Tiger Woods a black arsehole.
This was wrong.
No, Alf is making no judgement on whether Woods is an arsehole. He is in no position to say, although he does recognise that Tiger seems to have been a prodigious shagger.
But the record should show that Woods is neither black nor an unadulterated African-American.
He is of mixed race and has strived over the years to impress this on people.
Steve Williams should know this, after working for several years as Woods’ caddie (and pocketing a handsome income as a consequence).
