Breaking up is hard to do, even in golf. From husbands and wives to players and caddies to players and putters, we revisit the highest-profile splits in golf
Tiger Woods and Steve Williams

Tiger Woods-Steve Williams

For the second time in his professional career, Tiger Woods parted ways with his caddie. This time, Woods split up with Steve Williams, who was on the bag for 13 of his 14 major championship victories. Williams had caddied three events for Adam Scott, while Woods was sidelined due to injury. What made the move -- which was announced on Woods' website on July 20, 2011 -- more stunning was the apparent close bond the two had formed throughout their 12-plus years together. Woods has yet to announce a replacement or when he'll even return to playing golf.
