Jason Day may have a big advantage heading into the 2019 U.S. Open.
Now, according to a Golf Channel report, Day is taking another page from Woods' book by working with his former long-time caddie Steve Williams.
Tiger Woods will play alongside past US Open victor Justin Rose of England and three-time major victor Jordan Spieth in the first two rounds of next week's US Open golf tournament.
Williams most notably caddied for Woods when he won the 2000 U.S. Open by a whopping 15 strokes at the same course.
Day was seen practicing at the grueling coastal course with Williams and confirmed he will in fact be his caddie for the major championship.
It is unknown how permanent the move is, given Williams has not caddied full-time since his partnership with former world No. 1 Scott ended in 2017.
Day is looking for his second career major victory to go along with the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits. The two won the 2013 Masters together.
Day's childhood mates, Luke Reardon and Rika Batibasaga, normally share caddie duties for the Queenslander.
The significance in having Williams debut for Day at Pebble Beach for the US Open is not lost on Swatton.

He has yet to win on tour this season, but his best finish on the PGA Tour came in February at Pebble Beach, where he tied for fourth in the AT&T Pro-Am.
"Each day I got a little more crisp", said Woods, who was out of the running for a sixth Memorial title heading into Sunday, but lit up the front nine with five birdies at Muirfield Village before coming home in even par to sneak into the top 10 - albeit 10 shots behind victor Patrick Cantlay.
