Do you think Tiger Woods was trying to be his Caddie?

Tiger Woods’ caddie Steve Williams has dedicated his New Zealand stock car championship to his embattled friend and employer.

“I realize Tiger’s going through a difficult time and I hope my success on the track cheers him up a bit,” Williams said.

In an interview with FOXSports.com from his Home in Auckland, Williams also said he had “no idea“ when Woods would return to competitive Golf.

He said he‘d spoken with Woods by telephone — their birthdays last week were a day apart — but declined to discuss those conversations.

Williams, who turned 47 the day before Woods turned 34, beat 60 drivers on Saturday night to win his country’s Saloon Car championship at Maunganui’s Baypark Speedway.

It was his first national championship in the saloon class and came on the heels of his victory in the North Island Saloon Championship.

On Friday night, Williams will again get behind the wheel of his Mustang as he attempts to sweep the treble with a win in the Super Saloon class, a title he won in 2006.

“It’s been a great run and for sure it’s helped in keeping my mind off what’s going on (with Tiger),” he said.

“I work in a high-pressure environment as a caddie so racing’s a great release for me and always has been.”

Williams, whose team, Caddyshack Racing, is named after Tiger’s favorite movie, said he treated stock car racing as “more than a hobby.”

“People recognize me as a caddie, but I treat my racing equally as seriously as my career as a caddie,” he said.

Woods said in a statement issued on his Web site last month that he was taking an indefinite leave from golf after admitting to marital infidelity. A string of women have gone public with claims of having affairs with the world’s no. 1 golfer, who is married to Elin Nordegren, with whom he has two young children.

What In The World Happen Here???

WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. – A man who thought there was an intruder in his house shot and killed his fiancee the day before they were to be married, police said Friday.

“Right now everything points to a tragic accident,” Police Chief Kevin Brunelle told The Associated Press, adding investigators were awaiting forensic results.

John Tabutt, 62, told investigators he got his gun when he thought he heard an intruder, then fired at a figure in the hallway, according to Brunelle. It was Tabutt’s live-in fiancee, 62-year-old Nancy Dinsmore, who family members say he was going to marry Saturday. Tabutt told authorities he thought she was next to him in bed the whole time.

A message left for a phone number listed for the house was not returned.

Brunelle said no charges have been filed against Tabutt, adding the information he provided has been verified and he appeared “very distraught.”

Tabutt was “very concerned about her well-being,” standing by while she was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, Brunelle added.

‘They loved each other’
The couple planned to wed in a small ceremony Saturday at St. Stephen Catholic Church in Winter Springs, Dinsmore’s son-in-law Scott Sposato, of Vero Beach, told the Orlando Sentinel.

“They loved each other,” he said. “It was quite apparent.”

Tabutt called 911 shortly after 2:30 a.m. Friday, moaning and sobbing, the newspaper reported.

“I thought I had an intruder in the house,” he told the emergency dispatcher. “Honest to God, she looks dead.”

He then thought he heard her take a breath.

“Hang in there, Honey. Hang in there,” he said.

Winter Springs is about 15 miles north of Orlando.
