ATLANTA (AP) — Tiger Woods will be joining the U.S. Ryder Cup team on a charter flight to Wales. His caddie is on his own.
Steve Williams, along with the caddies for Stewart Cink and Rickie Fowler, were bumped off the U.S. team’s charter flight to the Ryder Cup when it was discovered the plane was not big enough for everyone.
Also on the charter flight will be several fans, who bought seats through a special Ryder Cup package.
PGA of America spokesman Julius Mason says the original plane was not available, and the alternative plane didn’t have enough seats. Instead of having the caddies fly coach, the PGA is reimbursing them for business-class seats.
The three caddies were picked because their players did not qualify for the Tour Championship. The charter is to leave Sunday night from Atlanta.
