Tiger's caddie to make debut as golf commentator

12:26 pm on 7 October 2008

Tiger Woods' caddie Steve Williams will make his debut as a TV golf commentator later this month.

He will be an on-course commentator for the inaugural Kiwi Challenge event being played at the Kauri Cliffs and Cape Kidnappers courses on 27- 28 October.

The challenge features Anthony Kim and Hunter Mahan of the United States Ryder Cup team along with Adam Scott and Brandt Snedeker in a 36 holes stroke play event.

Williams says he's agreed to the role because the Kiwi Challenge will provide great exposure for New Zealand.

The televised event, with a prize of $US1.5 milllion for the winner, will feature on NBC in the United States in mid November, and can be seen on Sky TV 10 days later.
