ATLANTA (AP) - Two people familiar with the decision tell The Associated Press that Tiger Woods will hire Joe LaCava as his next caddie.

The people requested anonymity because Woods had not yet announced the hire. They said LaCava has left Dustin Johnson and will work for the former No. 1 player in golf.

LaCava was the longtime caddie for Fred Couples. He began working for Johnson in June, and they won The Barclays a month ago.

Woods split with Steve Williams this summer.
