Billy Foster, who caddied for Matt Fitzpatrick as he won the US Open, is one of golf's greatest personalities and has done everything from staying in hotels that were "too dirty for rats" to making fun of Tiger Woods.

Steve Williams, Tiger Woods' longtime caddie, claims that he persuaded his ex-boss to establish a career goal of winning 21 majors.

American Woods, 46, is three victories short of Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 victories.

Tiger wanted to reach 20 years old, Williams revealed in an interview with BBC Sport for the "All about Tiger Woods" podcast.

I mentioned that my favorite number is 21, so let's make it 21; after you reach that age, you won't see me again. He claimed that's because I'm also retiring.

Williams, who caddied for Woods during 13 of his major championship victories between 1999 and 2011, opened up about their relationship both on and off the golf course, as well as winning the "Tiger Slam" and attempting to surpass Jack Nicklaus' record.

This most recent installment of the BBC Radio 5 Live series has been leading up to the 150th Open Championship at St. Andrews, which will take place next week.

According to Sports Illustrated, "I slept at motels where if rodents had wandered in during the night, they would have taken one glance and departed because it was too nasty." But I was unable to purchase anything else.
In 1981, the 59-year-old began working as a caddy for South African Hugh Baiocchi after training as a joiner apprentice with his father.

When the Ryder Cup was first played in 1987, he switched to Gordon Brand Junior.

He has participated in 13 other Ryder Cups after that time, most recently at Whistling Straits in 2021 with Fitzpatrick.

Although Ballesteros's last major victory was at the Open at Lytham St. Anne's in 1988, Foster did get to see some of the legend's most memorable moments, most notably the dramatic finale to the 1993 European Masters.

Ballesteros had a seemingly difficult shot over a wall with trees also in his way after pushing his drive right on the final hole.

Woods requested Clarke for permission to use Steve Williams, his regular caddie, for the remainder of the week because Williams was at home with his wife, who was expecting a baby.

Foster remarked, "That was a really humbling event." "To be asked [by] who I think is the greatest player ever. To have been the chosen one's caddy is something I'll cherish until my death.

At the Ryder Cup three years prior, Foster and Woods were on different teams, but the caddie saved his future employer's bacon.
