Former Tiger Woods Swing Coach Hank Haney To Release Tell-All Book
Former Tiger Woods swing coach Hank Haney has written a tell-all book that will go on sale this spring. Haney worked with Woods through his highs and lows including the period in which Tiger Woods won nearly half of all tournaments he entered.
Given the title The Big Miss Haney says the book should be hard to put down, speaking to ESPN he revealed:
“I get asked all the time about Tiger, what it was like to work with him. I felt like I had a front row seat to golf history. It just kind of chronicles a little bit of what I went through, what I dealt with, how I coached and the observations I made.”
“I think there’s a lot of things that people are going to find interesting.”
The book spans from his first time working with Tiger Woods at the Bay Hill Invitational in 2004 to their falling out months after Woods managed to win the 2010 Masters.
Unlike many people who have worked with Tiger Woods over the years Haney says he never signed a nondisclosure agreement and in fact never signed a formalized contract with Woods.
Hank Haney tells ESPN that the book probably won’t bother Woods as it’s not hard punching:
“If he reads it, I don’t think it will be a book that bothers him. It’s hard to say,” Haney said. “I think anybody who reads it will think it’s interesting, very fair and honest, and that’s what I wanted to do. I was on that job for six years. There were 110 days a year I was with him. I stayed at his house for close to 30 days a year. You make a lot of observations.”
In any sense there should be a fair amount of observations from Haney, after all he was with Woods through a marriage, the birth of two children, playing through a broken leg at the U.S. Open and the death of his father in May 2006.
