GOLF: Day hires caddie Williams in bid to unlock potential


So after months of contemplating a caddie change, Day lured Steve Williams out of retirement to carry his bag, starting with the U.S. Open this week.


Williams was the caddie for 13 of Tiger Woods’ 15 major championships, helped Adam Scott win the Masters in 2013, and has also worked for Greg Norman and Ian Baker-Finch during a long career.


Johnson won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am here in 2009-10, posted three other top three finishes in that event, and played an almost impeccable first three rounds the last time the U.S. Open came here in 2010.


Tiger Woods knows all about playing through an injury in chase of a championship: He won the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines on an injured left knee that needed major reconstructive surgery after the tournament.


That gave Woods a special insight into what Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant went through Monday night in the NBA Finals.


Durant returned to the floor after missing more than a month with a strained right calf and then suffered a much more serious injury when he hurt the Achilles on the same leg in the second quarter of Golden State’s 106-105 victory at Toronto.
