As noted at British news sites on Saturday, Steve Williams hit his former boss Tiger Woods with a sarcastic comment while making his speech at the “Celebration of the Year” dinner in Shanghai, China.

According to reports, Williams was asked about his speech when his current boss Adam Scott won against Woods at Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio last August, which he described as “the best win of my life”.

“It was my aim to shove it right up that black a****.” The 48-year old caddie from New Zealand was quoted telling to reporters, apparently referring to Tiger Woods, his boss from 1999 to 2011.

Nevertheless, Steve Williams, who was fired by Tiger Woods last July, posted on his official website later, and expressed how sorry he is for his negative comments against his former boss.

“I apologize for comments I made last night at the Annual Caddy Awards dinner in Shanghai. Players and caddies look forward to this evening all year and the spirit is always joking and fun.” Williams wrote.

“I now realize how my comments could be construed as racist. However I assure you that was not my intent. I sincerely apologize to Tiger and anyone else I have offended.” He added.

As of this writing, Tiger Woods, who is now in Australia preparing for the President Cups teams event in Melbourne starting next week, have not yet released his comment.

Meanwhile, Woods‘ agent Mark Steinberg called the act as “regrettable” and Adam Scott reportedly said that he will not fire Steve Williams.
