Woods' caddie finds work

Steve Williams, the longtime caddie for Tiger Woods, has a new boss this week. With Woods out due to injury, Williams, left, is carrying the bag of Adam Scott. Scott is between caddies, and Williams has a few weeks open. If Woods is unable to tee it up in two weeks at the AT&T National, Williams will once again tote Scott's bag.

Favorite role falls to Phil

With Tiger Woods sidelined, Las Vegas is finding it hard to pick a U.S. Open favorite. Sports books have decided on Phil Mickelson, left, but his odds are 10-1. Other top picks are Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood at 15-1, followed by Luke Donald at 18-1. Bettors can take the field besides Mickelson for odds between 8-1 and 10-1. golf tour, Tiger Woods' caddie finds work, U.S. Open favorite 06/15/11 [Last modified: Wednesday, June 15, 2011 7:50pm]
