Tiger Woods' caddie a better driver than his boss!

If Tiger Woods also had Steve Williams drive for him, things might have been looking a lot brighter for the world's No 1 golfer.
Woods' caddie captured the New Zealand Saloon Car title at Mt Maunganui's Baypark Speedway on Saturday night – and wants to continue his hot streak when he competes at the Huntly Speedway this weekend.
Williams, who won the North Island Saloon Champs title just days before in Rotorua, beat out a field of 60 competitors.
He started on the sixth row of the grid but shot to the lead on the second lap and wasn't headed to repeat the title he captured at the same track in 2006.
Now he has his sights on three victories in succession when he races in the New Zealand Super Saloon champs at Huntly starting on Friday night.
Williams, like his boss on the golf course, said he was always aiming to win.
"I always have high expectations," Williams said yesterday.
"You have to set your goals high. Sometimes they don't always work out that way but you have to always aim high."
Williams faces an indefinite spell away from golf after Woods announced late last year he would be taking a break from the sport following revelations about marriage infidelities that emerged after Woods was involved in an early-morning car crash outside his Florida home.
The game's most high-profile caddie wouldn't be drawn on whether he'd had any news from Woods as to when he'd be called back to work.
"I'm on holiday, mate," Williams grinned.
*Tiger Woods' wife Elin has told friends that she has agreed to a NZ$414 million (£185 million) divorce settlement, according to the "News of the World." The English Sunday newspaper said the 30-year-old former model told friends she received 'US$300 million as a Christmas present' from the world's No 1 golfer.
According to the Swedish paper "Express," Elin Woods, her twin sister, Josefin and five friends were in Chamonix in south-east France on a skiing holiday on New Year's Eve. Tiger Woods has been in seclusion for the past few weeks, but recent reports have him spotted at the Trump International Hotel in New York City, guarded by private security.
