However, by 2015, Williams’ role had dwindled to a part-time role, although he has performed for Scott at most large and major events. When Williams permanently retired from his limited duties two years later, it was because Scott needed a full-time looper. Williams would caddy for LPGA player Danielle Kang at the New Zealand Women’s Open in December of that year before eventually retiring.

Now 58 and out of full-time work five years ago, Williams is delighted to be reunited with Scott, who at 42 is currently ranked 34th in the world.

“The time I spent with Adam was very memorable; helping him become the first Australian to win in Augusta,” Williams said. Golf Digest. “I feel like Adam is in good shape with his game and I’m fresh as I haven’t played a caddy in a few years so I’ll bring a lot of enthusiasm. I always told Adam and others to be remembered as one of the great players, you have to win some big tournaments.

“Being able to try and get Adam Major #2 and rise to a special group of players in history would be a privilege.”
