After much anticipation, Hank Haney's book is finally available.
Haney, Tiger Woods' former swing coach, wrote The Big Miss: My Years coaching Tiger Woods. The book details Haney's time working with Woods.
Multiple excerpts from the book paint Woods in an unflattering light. Stories of Woods being rude to other golfers, as well as other people are peppered throughout the book.
The book also details how Woods' off-the-course behavior affected his play. According to Haney, Woods tore his ACL in 2007 during a Navy Seal training program.
Haney claims that everything in the book has to do with Woods' golf game, and ultimately is very positive in regards to Woods.
The golfer was not involved in writing the book, and is not happy about Haney's decision to publicize these stories. Wood's agent Mark Steinberg said some of the information in the book is not true.
Haney admits he never had in-depth, personal discussions with Tiger. This self-serving book is full of guesses and false assumptions. Most don't merit a response, but his stories about Tiger's injuries are simply not true. Tiger's injuries, and how they occurred, were exactly as described at the time they happened. Despite repeated claims that this is a golf book, it's not.
Haney coached Woods from 2004 to 2010.
The book can be purchased on amazon.com. The hardcover edition costs $15.60 and an audio version can be bought for $23.10.
