(Newser) – Tiger Woods' freshly fired caddie is apparently rather miffed at his sudden sacking by the golf great. After 12 years, 250 tournaments, and 72 wins together, Steve Williams says he was "extremely disappointed" by the surprising turn of events.

"I was prepared to hang in there through thick and thin so I find the timing extraordinary."

Williams said that their friendship, once quite close, has grown strained, and the two have not talked since Woods fired him two weeks ago. "I understand that's part of the game," said Williams. But "to be let go after staying incredibly loyal during the most difficult time in his life and then for him to decide that he needs a change, I think that the timing has been very poor."
