SAN DIEGO: The latest endorsement deal in Tiger Woods’ camp belongs to his caddie.
Steve Williams, who races cars in New Zealand when he’s not on the bag for the world’s No. 1 player, has signed a deal with Valvoline to wear its logo on his shirt sleeve during golf tournaments.
Valvoline is his primary sponsor on the racing circuit.
“It will be good exposure for them,” Williams said on Tuesday. “And it’s good to be associated with a company that is synonymous with racing.”
That begs the question: Is he a caddie who races cars on the side, or a race car driver who moonlights as a caddie?
“I treat each of them seriously,” Williams said. “I love to caddie and I love to race cars, and I give each of them my undivided attention when I’m doing them.”
He said Woods and Nike signed off on the deal, and he will continue to wear Nike hats. – AP
