Bamberger: Alan, you are underestimating the importance of his philanthropic life.
Shipnuck: (laughing) He's also got cars to race.
Anonymous Pro: Since Scott isn't going to be able to keep using that anchored putter, maybe even after the end of this year, I've got to say Tiger.
Van Sickle: But Stevie could change horses. Who's to say he couldn't loop for Rory or Jason Day or some other young gun in two years?
Anonymous Pro: That's true. I still think Tiger is the answer. Because he's Tiger.
Shipnuck: It's definitely Steve Williams. Scott may pick off another one or two majors before he loses his putter. Then some other talented underachiever will pick up Stevie, and he'll snag a few more. There's no doubt he's a really good caddie. He read the putt in the gloaming that won the Masters for Scott. We've got to give him credit.
Van Sickle: Stevie is 49. As Michael pointed out, how much longer is he going to work?
Garrity: So you're saying Stevie is never going to be a ceremonial caddie? He's not going to caddie unless he thinks he can still win?
Bamberger: What I'd like to see happen is, once he retires from pro caddying, Stevie starts caddying for elite amateurs and picks up a few British Amateur or U.S. Am titles and rekindles the debate about whether national amateur titles should count toward the majors total. Maybe Stevie could get to 21 and pass Jack at 20.
Shipnuck: Scott said it best—that Stevie instilled in him the will to win.
