Australian world No 3 Adam Scott has hired a new caddie to replace semi-retired Steve Williams after auditioning several hopefuls in recent months.

Scott announced on Monday that Zimbabwean Mike Kerr, who has previously worked for Ernie Els, Lee Westwood and Miguel Angel Jimenez, would take over as his permanent caddie next year.

"I'm delighted that Mike has accepted my offer and I am confident that he will be a valuable member of my team for 2015 and beyond," Scott, 34, said.

Scott settled on Kerr after using him at the Australian Open and Australian PGA Championship earlier this month.
