Legendary looper Stevie Williams has a book coming out tomorrow which might be a nice Christmas stocking filler.

But judging by this excerpt posted in a New Zealand paper today, there's going to be no gritty stuff about Tiger Woods sexual deviance.  Just more detailed explanation of how Williams hadn't a bloody clue his boss was riding everything around him.

When you live so intensely in the public eye, you surely have to have something else away from the spotlight that gives you pleasure – and it turns out I was wrong about the gym. The one question I'm now regularly landed with is: How could you not know about Tiger's multitude of mistresses? It's a valid question – it's one I would ask myself if a scandal of Tiger-like proportions happened to another caddy's boss. How could I spend so much time with him and not have an inkling this was going on? The answer, in a roundabout way, is that Elin didn't know either. Only a handful of his oldest buddies actually had any idea this was going on. I didn't know because Tiger didn't dare tell me. We had such a strong bond and working relationship that there was no way he could let me in on what was happening – he knew my values and that I would have zero tolerance for that kind of behaviour. I would have told him straight away that I condemned that kind of activity and, unless he stopped, there would be no conversation – that would be the end of us.

And after Tiger dinged his car with Elin sprinting down the drive with a golf club.

I was angry at him for what he'd done – especially what he'd done to Elin – but regardless of the morality of the matter, he was still a friend in trouble and I was going to stick by him. I did that even though people were accusing me of being an enabler, an accomplice, saying I was lying when I stated clearly that I knew nothing about this. For months on end, my life was absolutely miserable.

People in my local community would front up to me at the shops and call me a liar to my face, and ask, 'What are you doing with him?'

And Stevie's love for the media endures!

At one stage, one of the many women who claimed to be a mistress said she'd met me when I was with Tiger in Las Vegas – that got broadcast on radio in New Zealand and picked up in the papers. It was despicable reporting. I was giving my side of the story but no one seemed to care and comments like that from some bimbo on the other side of the world trying to get her 15 minutes of fame made me look like a fool. I begged Tiger's team to say something in my defence, but they wouldn't.
