SHANGHAI (AP) - Golf's two top tour executives say caddie Steve Williams' apology for a racial slur about Tiger Woods is sufficient and they will not take further action.
PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem and European Tour chief executive George O'Grady issued the statement Sunday after the HSBC Champions, a tournament sanctioned by all the major tours.
While getting roasted Friday at a caddies awards party, Williams said of the TV interview he gave at the Bridgestone Invitational that "it was my aim to shove it up that black a------." Williams was caddie for Adam Scott, two weeks after being fired by Woods after 12 years as his caddie.
The statement condemned his comments but said the matter is closed after the apology.
