Who would you like to see on The Haney Project?

Recommended Posts

With the recent announcement of Michael Phelps (yawn) being the next pupil for Hank Haney to screw up (kidding!), it got me thinking - who would you like to see on the show?

THP got off to a good start, imo, with Charles Barkley, but then Rush Limbaugh & Ray Romano kinda took the bloom off the rose for me. The show needs some kind of lovable nutjob with some attitude.

Up until his recent arrest, I was thinking Chad Ochocinco. Maybe Terrelle Owens?

Who would you like to see?

The gist of the show has always been him taking a non-golfer or really crappy golfer and trying to turn him/her into a decent one, huh?  I think I'd find it more interesting if he took an already decent golfer and attempted to make him/her into a really good one.

Like, say, Michael Jordan.  Tony Romo, etc.

If his health was still up there, I think Bill Clinton would be fun to watch too.

Good question Zip, here's a few that might be interesting to watch;

  • Donald and Ivanka Trump
  • Brian Skatell from Big Break (the guy that pure's his shots)
  • Bill Murray
  • Dana White (UFC President)

She gets her face time every season he does, whether it be during golf lessons or photo shoots.

I lost interest in this series after Sir Charles........

Watching Barkley was a hoot, but the other celebs?...not so much.

Angie Everhart is a hard act to follow.  Maybe Jenna Jameson?

In all seriousness why not the loser of this coming presidential election?

BuckeyeNut I like your avatar.

Kevin James would make for a hilarious student.....although Ray didn't do a lot for me so maybe that wouldn't be so great.

They should do a season where they pick 6 different celebrities and dedicate one episode to each of them.  They could go and spend 3 days with Hank in kind of a "golf boot camp" and that could be condensed into an episode.  Then the 7th episode could be a competition and the 8th a wrap-up (or whatever).  They could call it The Haney Project - Boot Camp.

Lisa Lampanelli would make a hilarious episode.  Tony Romo would be good.  William Shatner, Betty White, Justin Timberlake, Mark Wahlberg would all make good episodes.

It would be interesting for us golf nerds if he took a Web.Com player or elite amatuer or something like that .. but that seems almost as unlikely as Tiger doing a season.

    • This annoys me with regular pants too. My phone and my wallet get all tangled with the pocket.
    • I would give Henry Griffits a call.   If a company was able to make extreme clubs it would be them. Henry Griffits
    • His reaction is now my favorite victory celebration ever. 
    • How often on the range do you face the same conditions: you haven't made a swing with that club perhaps yet that day, the lie is sidehill/downhill from a slightly burned out lie, you've just walked up and down a hill for 250 yards and spent two minutes looking for your buddy's ball… etc.? On the range you're just out there hitting the same club over and over, from flat lies, to the same target over and over. And yet someone who can't break 100 can be better at "course management" than a PGA Tour pro. So even if you want to put that in the "mental" column, it doesn't account for much of anything. Nah. I'm not giving you that one. How you practice determines how well the "physical" side of things improve. No, it's not. Controlling distance on long putts is entirely a physical thing - delivering the clubhead to the ball with the proper impact conditions (clubhead speed, AoA, contact location, path, loft, etc.). And nobody is thinking about their tempo when playing. That's on autopilot at that point. It occurs without thinking. Oh brother, so you're just gonna attribute everything to the mind because golf is not something we do naturally, like breathing, is that it? Maybe… just throwing it out there… it's not nearly as mental as you seem to believe it is?  Maybe… just throwing it out there… the player with the superior physical skills almost always wins, and the most the mental aspect can add is a sliver of an advantage? I'm going to lose almost all the time to a table tennis person rated two hundred points higher. I can know the location of the pitch, the speed, the shape (curve, slider, etc.), and I can be coached to have all the positive mental imagery and confidence in the world… and still not hit the ball as well as an MLB player who is singing along to music on headphones, using a bat that isn't their own, and facing a pitcher they've never seen before. Muscular tension is a physical thing. It may be a manifestation of a mental thing, but it is itself a physical thing. Green reading isn't mental. You train the physical to do it. I've taught seven-year-olds to read greens better than far more accomplished golfers in 30 minutes. The training involves paying attention to physical sensations. One is doing a better job of training the physical. Seriously, if you want to attribute everything to the mental game because we're sentient human beings and golf is not an instinctual thing, be my guest, but that renders the conversation silly at that point.
    • Depending on the hole, have 2 to all of you go at the pin with your approach shots. Lets say the pin is guarded by water, then try to get one ball on the green or just off the green in a safe spot. Then you have free reign to try to pin seek. You need birdie opportunities. In most cases you should be able to get up and down from most places around the green.
