The two had mutually parted ways at the end of last season in part because the 50-year-old Williams wanted to cut back on his schedule.

After struggling to just two top tens and a tie for 38th at the Masters, however, Scott decided to part ways with Mike Kerr last week and reunite with Williams, who was on the bag when Scott won his first career major at the 2013 Masters.

Scott says Williams was adamant that he was not going to caddie in 2015, so he took some convincing, but the Queenslander's very happy the veteran caddie has agreed to help out.

Scott says they've had great success together, so he's looking forward to being on the links with Williams again.

Scott first hired Williams in the summer of 2011 and flourished with him by his side, reaching number one in the world in May of 2014.

Williams will caddie for Scott in his next four events - the US Open, The Open Championship, World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship.
