Steve Williams has caddied for Tiger Woods for more than 10 years.

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Tiger Woods' caddie said Saturday he supports his boss while the world's No. 1 golfer copes with allegations of extramarital affairs.

Steve Williams has been Woods' caddie the last 10 years. He refused to discuss Woods' private life, although he said the golfer had confided in him.

"That's what friends are for," he told the New Zealand Herald. "You support them through good and bad. It's like marriage, really."

Williams also told the newspaper he expected to carry Woods's bag in San Diego the last week in January.

He said Woods called to say he was withdrawing from the Chevron World Challenge in California because of injuries from a Nov. 27 car crash.

Williams was to have driven in a dirt track car race at Te Marua, north of Wellington, on Saturday night but withdrew because of engine trouble.
