Tiger Woods unhappy with former coach writing book

The former world No 1 says he’s not going ‘to waste his time’ reading Hank Haney’s much-anticipated book.

REMEMBER WE TOLD you about Tiger Woods’ former coach Hank Haney writing a book about their time on tour together?

Well guess what? The former world number one is not happy about it.

“I think it’s unprofessional and very disappointing,” Woods said in an ESPN interview, “especially because it’s someone I worked with and trusted as a friend.

“There have been other one-sided books about me and I think people understand that this book is about money. I’m not going to waste my time reading it. I just think this book is very self-serving.”

Haney left Woods in May 2010 after a six-year period in which the former world number one won six of his 14 majors. “The Big Miss” goes on sale in the spring and the golf guru  believes the book will be hard to put down.

“I get asked all the time about Tiger, what it was like to work with him,” Haney said recently. “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.”

Haney wrote the book with Jaime Diaz of Golf Digest and it will be published by Crown Archetype, part of the Crown Publishing Group at Random House, Inc on 27 March — one week before the Masters.

Tiger Woods begins his season in Abu Dhabi next week.
