I'm pretty sure he would just blow me off. That's kind of how he does it. He doesn't try to be a jerk. He just doesn't get it. … There is a price for greatness. I think that comes across in the book.


Oh **** off, Haney. You don't get to write a tell-all gossip book where you're including stories in an effort to make them subject look bad (which he references in the next question), and then expect to gab like chums at the driving range.

No kidding. WTF a sociopath? Seriously? What the hell is he talking about. Haney needs to get over his own egocentric self.

Forreal. I've always supported the idea of Haney writing the book, but its just never-ending. A sociopath? 

 

And I don't think it reads well for Haney for Damon Hack to say that he learned more about Tiger from the book than covering his career. That sounds pretty sarcastic to me.

Would Haney just go away already? You don't teach the pros anymore. Good for you, so go away and stop talking about pro golf. Just go away you ****.

Wow, that's a lot of animosity for someone who wrote, by all accounts a book of his own experience, thoughts and opinions. he retired from teaching tiger by quitting on his own accord from the worlds greatest golfer- during his peak time. he was not under any obligation or responsibility contractually forbidden to speak or to write - there was no non disclosure agreement. What he did write about were mostly his opinions, there was no dirt or smoking gun. I personally did not read anything slanderous. And for that matter no one came forth and disagreed with what was written- that I am aware of.

did all of you read the book cover to cover? Or was the bible's writing of Jesus in bad taste too? Personally I did and found nothing strange or damaging about. It- to me it was like being inside the ropes a little bit.

The " sociopath" comment came from behavior professionals based on some of Haney's writings, again another opinion of someone else. And you know what? there is some truth to the description.

If you believe that Haney quit completely on his own… then I've got some oceanfront property in Idaho to sell you.

He was under no LEGAL obligation. He violated the unwritten code, though.

They didn't feel the need to dignify the book with a response. People don't respond to articles written in the National Enquirer very often either - doesn't make them all true.

 


 

But it's okay, you hate Tiger, so anything bad said about him you're inclined to agree. Right?

Whether you're a Tiger fan or not is no matter, you gotta take the book for what it's worth simply a behind-the-scene view of Tiger's world. I come to appreciate his solid work ethic especially when it came to preparing for majors, 8-10 hours on practice range is what seperates him from the field. Funny how Haney encouraged him to grip club in palm rather than fingers. And Tiger's obsession with the military is crazy when you consider he would walk away from the game to wear camouflage.

Any update on Tiger? Presumably with no sign of him on a course yet we can write off the chances of him being at Hoylake?

He's chipping and putting for longer periods of time without pain.

 

That's all they had to report. IIRC Notah Begay told someone, who reported it last night during Live From.

Thanks, good news that Notah Begay is well enough to pass Tiger news on!

my point is there's a lot of over reaction of the " content" written, So much reaction and brew ha ha by posters that likely never read the book IMO


I failed to read any part that was derogertory, bad, slanderous, mean spirited, shocking or for that matter unbelievable accounts or descriptions to have likely occured......inside of that book written about Haneys experience while coaching TW. The book has been out for a while and many have concluded the same thing, nothing shocking, no wow, no dirt, just a simple account of Hanks experience.

But to each his own.

I read the book and thought it was ridiculous. The trash outweighed the "insights" by an order of magnitude.

 

I also thought it said way, way more about Haney than it said about Tiger.

Then you agree, the content wasn't anything insiteful or to write home about, kind of soft....nothing great.

Oh well we'll have to wait for Harmon's book.. a1_smile.gif

No.

 

He could have offered the insights with a retelling of history, and avoided the garbage.

Your suggestion would not make sense to the title of the book...The Big Miss: My Years Coaching Tiger Woods by Hank Haney

 

Back on topic though, I wonder if Tiger will be watching the US open? I mean like most/some of us we'll probably play golf and then watch What else would he do, from what I understand from another book about Marc O'Meara, Tiger enjoys fishing, but he probably can't do that either, so will he be watching?

Tiger hitting full shots?

According to Tim Rosaforte of Golf Channel, Tiger Woods is taking full swings with the golf club again -- including his driver.

Just heard @TigerWoods hitting balls at @MedalistGC this weekend, including driver. Check out @GCMorningDrive.

With the British Open still five weeks away it sounds like Woods might be ready in time.

I've said all along that I'd be surprised if he played that tournament, thinking he'd opt for a more comfortable venue (like the Bridgestone Invitational) but now I think I'd be surprised if he missed it.

Woods isn't one to skip out on majors if he can give them a go and he won at Royal Liverpool back in 2006.

Either way, the sport could use him as US Open ratings were down by almost 50 percent from last season.

Woods is the 7-1 favorite to win the British Open.
