While Adam Scott celebrated the biggest victory of his career at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday, his caddie Steve Williams took a few verbal jabs at his former employer Tiger Woods.

Williams took issue with the manner of his firing by Woods on July 3, saying the split had been conducted over the phone and not face-to-face as his former employer has said.

"It's the most satisfying win I've ever had, there's no two ways about it," Williams told reporters after Scott had clinched his first World Golf Championships (WGC) title with a flawless five-under-par 65.

"The fans have been unbelievable. It's the greatest week of my life caddying and I sincerely mean that."

Williams, who has previously caddied for topline players including Australian Greg Norman and American Raymond Floyd, was stunned when Woods abruptly decided to end a highly successful relationship dating back to 1999.

The New Zealander was axed after the AT&T National at Newtown Square, Pennsylvania, although the split was not made public until after the British Open to limit any distraction for Scott.

Williams later broke his own silence, saying he was "very disappointed" and felt he had wasted two years of his life with Woods having been sidelined for long stretches by leg injuries.
