Johnson not bitter after losing caddie to Woods

KINGSBARNS, Scotland — Dustin Johnson doesn't begrudge Tiger Woods for hiring his caddie, saying such decisions are part of the business of golf.

Joe LaCava left Johnson on Sunday to become Woods' third full-time caddie.

"I spoke to Tiger about it. There's no hard feelings at all," Johnson said. "We had a great conversation. He just did what he did."

LaCava was the longtime caddie for Fred Couples but joined Johnson this summer. Johnson, one of the most talented American players, was looking for a caddie. Johnson won The Barclays last month with LaCava on the bag.

"I liked Joe. I still do. But you've got to make decisions and you can't get mad at him for the decisions he made," said Johnson, who was in the locker room after the final round of the Tour Championship when he found out LaCava had been hired by Woods.
