Day announces Williams split
Jason Day has announced he has split from caddie Steve Williams after just six tournaments together.
The Australian has made the decision after failing to make the cut at The Northern Trust last week and has cited a clash in styles as one of the main reasons.
"Parting with Steve was a mutual decision and not an easy one to make," Day told Australian Associated Press.
"He is the ultimate pro; it was a real learning experience being exposed to a caddie who has achieved what Steve has. He has worked with the best.
"But it was a disconnect of old school and new school."
Despite the end of their working relationship, Day has been quick to point out that he and Williams, who was on the bag for 13 of Tiger Woods' first 14 major wins and has also worked with Adam Scott and Greg Norman in the past, have parted on good terms.
"Steve has become a friend and I have a lot of respect for him. I thank Steve for everything he taught me," Day added.
Day will have his friend and fellow pro David Lutterus on his bag for this week's BMW Championship. He will need a big performance at Medinah if he is to make it to next week's season finale at East Lake given he is currently 50th in the FedEx Cup standings.
The 31-year-old is also on course to miss out on a place on the International Team for this year's Presidents Cup as he is outside the automatic positions ahead of next week's squad announcement.
