Nobody is going to feel sorry for Tiger Woods. He is a high-profile golfer who has gone through a bunch of personal turmoil and now his former coach has written a book. As Tiger himself would typically say, “It is what it is.”
Although in this case, not exactly. Woods is none too pleased that Hank Haney has written a book about their six years together called “The Big Miss” that is due out just in time for the Masters.
Woods told ESPN.com in a telephone interview Thursday that he thought it was “unprofessional” of Haney to violate their working relationship, their friendship. He said the book was all about making money and self-serving.
Of course, few are the folks who write books for the fun of it. Certainly as a golf instructor, Haney understands the value of marketing himself.
Woods was matter-of-fact in discussing the situation, sounding more disappointed than angry, more hurt than mad.
