AKRON, Ohio — The chants and cheers began as Adam Scott walked toward the 18th green to complete a command performance Sunday in the Bridgestone Invitational and win his first World Golf Championship.
But in a surreal scene at Firestone, they weren’t for him.
They were for his caddie.
“Stev-ie Will-iams,” they shouted as the guy carrying the bag for Scott broke into a big smile.
“I’ve caddied for 33 years — 145 wins now — and that’s the best win I’ve ever had,” Williams told CBS Sports on the 18th green. This from a guy whose 12 years working for Woods featured 13 majors and 16 world titles among 72 wins worldwide. That includes the 2001 Masters, when Woods won an unprecedented fourth straight major.
