Tiger Woods' former caddie, Steve Williams, recently revealed that he is "still disappointed" with the way his relationship with the golfer ended four years ago.

Yahoo Sports reported that Williams remains dismayed with how he parted ways with Woods in 2011.

Fox Sports detailed that the two split, with the caddie acknowledging it and announcing that he will already be working for Australian Adam Scott.

"Following the completion of the AT&T National, I am no longer caddying for Tiger after he informed me that he needed to make a change," Williams' earlier statement read.

Williams also said that parting ways with the champ "came as a shock" to him.

"Given the circumstances of the past 18 months working through Tiger's scandal, a new coach and with it a major swing change and Tiger battling through injuries I am very disappointed to end our very successful partnership at this time," the caddie added.

He also told Fox Sports that he lost respect for Woods when adultery charges haunted the golfer. Williams noted that he did not reveal his real feelings about the issue early on.

"Well, I think when you're great friends with somebody and a situation like this occurs, you obviously lose some kind of respect," he said.

Williams claimed that he was indeed "unhappy" with Woods dropping him even though he remained loyal to him.

"I've stuck by him through and through. Now he decides things aren't going well for him, and I'm down the road, so the timing's very disappointing," he said.

Since announcing his summer-only return to caddie for Adam Scott in this year's PGA Championship, Williams told Golf Digest that after he retired last year, he just wanted to be a normal fan of golf.

Williams also gushed about the memorable times he spent with Woods when they were still partners, like how the golfer intimidated Andrew Coltart prior to their match at the 1999 Ryder Cup and the "dime-sized ball mark Woods hit with his chip-in at No. 16" during the finals of the 2005 Masters.

"He then hit that old ball mark exactly, from 20 feet away from a tough lie. That the ball went in the hole was sort of a miracle, but hitting the old ball mark on the fly was one of the most amazing things I've ever seen," Williams added.

Williams shared that he took his hat off for Woods during the 2008 U.S. Open because he was playing on "one good leg" but he still managed to win it.

"On the course, the sickening click of bones rubbing together as he walked made me queasy. The groans and squeaks he made were unreal. It's the most heroic thing I've ever seen in golf," the caddie added.
