If Tiger doesn't see it as an issue then he won't change it. I think Hank said it's close to 95% that Tiger dismisses.
As for not drawing the ball, I think it was mentioned above, Haney took the left side of the course right out of play for Tiger. When he misses (missed) big, it was left if the form of a monsterous hook. Most big misses (hence the title of his book) were unplayable in the left rough/trees.
Butch wanted him to hit the ball 330 yards every time and draw it, Haney took that away and wanted him 310 in the fairway and Foley is in between them, learn to control the draw but the cut is the go-to shot.
Count me in the camp that will not read Haney's book - Hank, from the stories of those who worked for him, is fairly self-serving, and interested in, surprise, in his brand, which is about money. He seems like a nice guy on the radio, but it's his brand ... there is a man behind the brand. The book promotes the brand, and the stories as factually true? The only ones who know are the principals... Hank pushes his brand.
Before Hank left Tiger, I heard the stories from Haney instructors - Hank would mention something to Tiger, and 3-4 months later, Tiger would ask about it again. That's not dismissive ... it is distrusting, and says something about Tiger.
