    In an interview with Television New Zealand, Steve Williams talked about being let go as Tiger Wood's caddie.  It was packed with undertones that he has been treated unfairly.  Here's what William's had to say.


    "You could say I've wasted the last two years of my life," he said.


    "I've stuck with Tiger and been incredibly loyal," he said.  "I'm not disappointed I've been fired -- that's part of the job -- but the timing is extraordinary. I am extremely disappointed, given that the last 18 months has been a particularly difficult time.


    "With the scandals, a new coach, a swing change, I've stuck with him through thick and thin and been incredibly loyal -- and then this happens. I wouldn't ditch someone when the chips are down. I've stuck by Tiger and put myself and my family in a difficult position."


    "I'm a very big stickler for loyalty and I stuck with Tiger through his difficult period when a lot of people thought I should have left his side. That was the most difficult period that I've ever been through in my life. I'm pretty hard-headed and took it probably a lot better than my wife and family did, but there's no way that I should have been put through that" continued Williams.


    "My name should have been cleared immediately. It wasn't and that's what makes it even more disappointing what's transpired."


    "I, along with a lot of people, lost a lot of respect for Tiger and I pointed out before his return at the Masters at Augusta in 2010, that he had to earn back my respect."


    "Through time, I hope he can gain my respect back," Williams said speaking about Woods. "He definitely needs to earn my respect again, that's for sure."


    Just when we thought we were done with Tiger Wood's drama, he pulls us right back in....
