Kingsbarns (Scotland): Dustin Johnson says there is no friction between him and fellow American Tiger Woods after losing his caddie to the former No. 1.

Joe LaCava left the fifth-ranked Johnson on Sunday to become Woods` full-time caddie.

Johnson says "I spoke to Tiger about it. There`s no hard feelings at all."

Johnson says Keith Sbarbaro, vice president of his club makers TaylorMade, will carry his bag for the rest of the year. He said he has "quite a few caddies wanting the job" to replace LaCava.

Johnson is playing the Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland, where he shot a 1-under 71 in the first round on Thursday.
