2011 U.S. Open Tee Times, Pairings: Steve Williams To Caddie For Adam Scott, What Does This Mean For Tiger Woods?

The Tiger Woods saga continues. Just days after announcing via twitter that he will not be playing in the 2011 U.S. Open, Ron Sirak of Golf Digest is reporting Woods' friend and caddie Steve Williams will be on Adam Scott's bag when Scott tees off Thursday at Congressional Country Club. No offense to Adam Scott, the young Australian slowly making his way back up the world rankings, but the story here is what does this mean for Tiger Woods? Sirak, who notes he has covered Tiger for 16 years, offers his thoughts:

Could this mean that Tiger is going to shut it down for the year to get his left leg healthy? Could it mean that Woods is going to have yet another operation on his knee, perhaps even a knee replacement? With three more majors to play this year, and with Scott rediscovering his once-promising form, it would seem odd he would sign on a caddie for just one tournament.

Sirak also makes sure to point out Steve Williams doesn't need to loop at Congressional for the paycheck, meaning he more than likely will caddie for Scott at all the 2011 majors, further adding to the intrigue surrounding Tiger's return. As with everything in Tiger Woods' life, I'm sure there is more to come on this story in the days and weeks ahead.
