Roethlisberger Out As Tiger's Caddie

Aug 4, 2011

"A bad idea from the get-go"
 
AKRON, OH - In a last minute decision, Tiger Woods dumped Ben Roethlisberger as his caddie for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club.
 
"It was a bad idea from the get-go," said a source close to Woods who asked not to be identified in order to speak to eTrueSports.
 
The recently married Roethlisberger said he was disappointed. "Tige promised I could meet some of his girl friends if I beat up Stevie Williams," said the Steelers QB. "But treating me like this?

"It really makes me question his commitment to personal authenticity."
 
Dropping Roethlisberger may have been a desperate attempt by Woods to salvage his fading friendship with tennis star Roger Federer.
 
"Roger doesn't think much of Ben Roethlisberger," said the Woods source. "And Roger is the last athlete in the world who still talks to Tiger.
 
"It's lonely at No. 28."
