U.S. Open 2019: Jason Day says he’s ‘underachieved,’ but new caddy Steve Williams will help

Jason Day has never won the U.S. Open, but he’s come close; he finished tied for second in both 2011 and 2013 and had five top 10s in the event.

Steve Williams might be able to help the 31-year-old Australian break through. Golf Digest confirmed Monday that the veteran caddy will be on Day’s bag at Pebble Beach for this week’s U.S. Open.

Williams, of course, won 13 major championships caddying for Tiger Woods and helped Adam Scott win the 2013 Masters. Williams supposedly retired in 2017, so his appearance this week at Pebble Beach with Day turned some heads.

Day, the No. 16 ranked golfer in the world, said Tuesday at a U.S. Open media conference that it’s not a one-off deal. Williams will caddy for him going forward, replacing Luke Reardon.
