Scott reunites with Masters-winning caddie

Sydney - Adam Scott has reunited with his US Masters winning caddie Steve Williams as the Australian attempts to revive his on course fortunes, the PGA Tour said on Tuesday.

The pair mutually parted company at the end of the 2013-14 US season in part because the 50-year-old New Zealander wanted to cut back on his travelling schedule.

But after struggling to just two top 10s and a tied 38th at the Augusta Masters, Scott decided to part ways with Mike Kerr last week and reunite with Williams.

"Steve was adamant that he was not going to caddie in 2015, so he took some convincing, but I am very happy he's agreed to help out," he told the PGA website of Williams, who was on the bag when Scott won his first career major at the 2013 Masters.

"We've had great success together, so I'm looking forward to being on the links with Steve again."

Scott first hired Williams, previously Tiger Wood's caddie for 13 of his 14 major titles before being sacked, in 2011 and flourished with him by his side, reaching the number one world ranking in May last year.

Williams will caddie for Scott in his next four events -- the US Open, The British Open, World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship.

In three seasons with him, Scott won the 2011 World Golf Championship Bridgestone Invitational, the Australian Masters in 2012 and 2013, the Barclays in 2013, the Australian PGA Championship in 2013, the Crowne Plaza Invitational in 2014 and the Masters in 2013.

Scott also spent 11 weeks as the world's top golfer, only the second Australian to reach the milestone behind Greg Norman.
