SHANGHAI (AP) -- Tiger Woods' former caddie has caused another sensation, this time by using a racial slur to disparage his old boss during a caddies award roast in Shanghai.

Steve Williams received a mock award Friday night for "Celebration of the Year" for his TV interview after Adam Scott won the Bridgestone Invitational. That was the day Williams said it was "the best win of his life," despite being on the bag with Woods for 13 majors.

At an awards party filled with banter, Williams said of his interview, "It was my aim to shove it right up that black a------."

Williams was stunned to hear British tabloids had gone with the story because the awards night was supposed to be off the record. He later apologized. Woods' agent said the comment was regrettable.
