Tiger Woods' agent Mark Steinberg says racist remarks made about the golfer by his former caddie Steve Williams were regrettable.

Williams made the slur during a dinner for caddies in Shanghai, where he was given a mock award for his celebration after winning the Bridgestone invitational, carrying the bag for Adam Scott.

That was his first victory since being fired by Woods after winning 13 majors with the former world number one.

He then stunned the audience by saying the point of the interview was to "shove it right up that black a…”

Williams has since apologized for his remarks. While Woods agent Mark Steinberg said they were “regrettable and sad.”

The question now is whether Adam Scott will keep Williams as his caddy when he plays in the Australian Open, or if the outspoken Williams has talked himself out of a job.
