While the Australian golfer Adam Scott celebrated the biggest victory of his career at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio, his caddie New Zealander Steve Williams took a few verbal jabs at his former employer Tiger Woods.

Williams described Australian Scott's four-shot victory at Firestone Country Club as the most satisfying of his career, despite having previously won 13 majors in tandem with Woods.

Williams also took issue with the manner of his firing by Woods last month saying the split had been conducted over the phone and not face-to-face as his former employer has said.

Williams, who has previously caddied for topline players including Australian Greg Norman and American Raymond Floyd, was stunned when Woods abruptly decided to end a highly successful relationship dating back to 1999.
