Tiger Woods says everything is fine as far as he is concerned with his former caddie, Steve Williams.
The two met during practice rounds for the Australian Open and discussed the recent incident when Williams made a racial slur directed at Woods during a caddie awards dinner in China.
"Steve's certainly not a racist," Woods emphasized after the two hashed out the incident. "It was a wrong thing to say, something we both acknowledge. He did apologize. It was hurtful, certainly, but life goes forward."
Woods is competing in the Australian Open as is Adam Scott, who now has Williams as his caddie.
"We talked this morning, we met face-to-face and talked about it, talked it through," Woods said.
This week marks two years since Woods' last victory, which came at the 2009 Australian Masters.
