  • After transition, Caitlyn Jenner faces different access at Sherwood C.C.

    Caitlyn Jenner, who has transitioned from her former identity as Bruce Jenner, may face a loss of privileges at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif., where she has been a member for 15 years.

    The club grants men and women different access to portions of its property, including a male-only grill room, which Jenner is now prohibited from using. She is allowed to use a dining area off the women's locker room. However, it is smaller and shuts her off from male members, many of which she has played alongside over the years.

    Sherwood intends to enforce its gender-based segregation in Jenner's case, according to TMZ, but may be open to hearing an appeal. 

    Jenner made her new identity public on Monday on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine. The club is closed until December for renovations, giving both parties time to reach a potential compromise.

  • Steve Williams to caddie for Adam Scott this summer

    The band is getting back together. 

    Adam Scott will have former full-time caddie Steve Williams on the bag for four events this summer, including three major championships. The Kiwi will loop for Scott starting with Scott's next event, the U.S. Open, followed by the Open Championship, WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship.

    Williams will replace Mike Kerr, who Scott announced last week had been fired as the Aussie's full-time caddie. 

    Scott and Williams parted ways after last PGA Tour season when the two were unable to forge a relationship that satisfied Scott's need for a full-time caddie and Williams' desire to have more weeks free.

    The two first worked together at the 2011 U.S. Open, when Scott called on Williams to be his caddie when Tiger Woods was unable to play due to injury. The relationship became permanent after Woods fired Williams ahead of Woods' Quicken Loans National near Philadelphia. That summer, Scott won the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational with Williams on the bag. After the win at Firestone, the caddie gave what is perhaps the first-ever winner's bagman interview.
