Tiger Woods knows caddie drama.
Steve Williams manned Woods’ bag during his peak run from 1999 to 2011 before an acrimonious split that included Williams writing “it was like I was his slave” in a tell-all book.
Now Woods finds himself of the wrong end of a lawsuit tied to his current caddie.
A civil suit filed Tuesday in Pinellas County, Florida, by a man named Brian Borruso claims that Woods’ caddie Joe LaCava “intentionally shoved” him while he was a spectator at the 2018 Valspar Championship in Central Florida.
The suit claims that Borruso tried to take a selfie with Woods in the background when Woods approached a ball near the 13th green, where Borruso was standing.
Here is video of the alleged incident.
Mental injury, disability, disfigurement
There, he claims that LaCava shoved him, causing “bodily and mental injury ... disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, expenses of hospitalization, medical and nursing care and treatment, loss of ability to earn income, and aggravation of a previously existing condition,” according to documents obtained by TMZ.
He did not accuse Woods of making physical contact. Woods is named as a defendant alongside LaCava because LaCava is his employee.
The damage total Borruso is seeking isn’t clear.
Why wait two years?
Borruso’s attorney Josh Drechsel described his client’s injuries as “either permanent or continuing” and told the Associated Press that he waited two years to file the suit to get a better understanding of the injuries.
LaCava declined comment with AP and Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Had the Masters not been postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Woods would be preparing to start his defense of the tournament on Thursday.
