After helping golfer Adam Scott to his first world title at the Bridgestone Invitational over the weekend, Steve Williams, Tiger Woods' ex-caddie, made some controversial comments aimed at his former boss.

While opinions varied on how Williams' interview with CBS Sports on the 18th green reflected on Tiger, there was greater consensus that the caddie was stealing the spotlight from Scott, with several pro golfers taking to Twitter to voice their opinions.

After having a chance to reflect on his actions and words, Williams conceded, during an interview with from Atlanta, that he was "a bit over the top".

"I had a lot of anger in me about what happened [with Woods] and it all came out."

This weekend was not the first time that Williams rubbed some the wrong way, having previously gone public with his dislike for golfer Phil Mickleson while still on the bag for Woods.
