Adam Scott has parted company with caddie Mike Kerr and persuaded old partner Steve Williams to work with him over the summer.
Scott has not enjoyed the best of fortunes in 2015 to date with just one top-10 finish all year.
That came in the WGC – Cadillac Championship, and he has subsequently missed two cuts and failed to challenge in any of the events he has teed it up in.
The Australian secured a share of 38th place at both the Masters and the Players Championship, while he finished joint-24th in the Crowne Plaza Invitational.
And it is Kerr who has paid the price, as the former world number one has now dispensed with the Zimbabwean’s services.
Kerr had previously worked for Ernie Els, Lee Westwood and Miguel Angel Jimenez, among others, but will be looking for another bag, with Williams now back on board for the US Open, the Open Championship, the Bridgestone Invitational and the US PGA Championship.
Williams used to caddy for Tiger Woods and was on his bag for 13 of his 14 major triumphs but the pair were involved in an acrimonious split a few years ago before Scott opted to begin his successful association with the 51-year-old New Zealander.
