Greg Norman has defended caddie Steve Williams over his racial slur about Tiger Woods, saying the comments were "stupid" but that he doesn't believe Williams is racist.
Norman, speaking Monday at The Lakes, where he'll begin play in the Australian Open on Thursday, also said Williams' current employer Adam Scott should ignore calls to release him.
At a caddies' awards party Friday in Shanghai, Williams talked about a television interview he gave following Scott's win at the Bridgestone Invitational , saying "it was my aim to shove it up that black a------."
Norman said "we've all made stupid comments at stupid times, unfortunately his stupid comment became global news."
