JOHNS CREEK, Ga. (AP) — Adam Scott has talked with Steve Williams about the caddie's comments last weekend at Firestone, and both are ready "let our clubs do the talking" at the PGA Championship.

Coming off a win against an elite field in the World Golf Championship, Scott is one of the favorites at the final major of the year in suburban Atlanta. But he was again asked whether Williams stole his thunder by lashing out at former boss Tiger Woods.

Scott says the whole thing has been "blown out of proportion," but he did talk with Williams about it. Scott says he knows his caddie his a very emotional personal and had a lot of things to say about being fired by Woods.

Williams tells The Associated Press that "a lot of emotion and anger" came out but he didn't mean to hurt anyone.
