ATLANTA (AP) — The Associated Press has learned Tiger Woods will hire Joe LaCava as his next caddie.

Two people aware of the deal said Sunday that LaCava has left Dustin Johnson and will go to work for the former No. 1 player in golf. LaCava was the longtime caddie for Fred Couples. He began working for Johnson in June, and they won The Barclays a month ago.

Woods split with Steve Williams this summer.
