Tiger's Statement on Haney

By May 11, 2010

Follow me on:

Tiger Woods has posted a statement on his Web site about the resignation of Hank Haney as his swing coach. Tiger's statement is brief, and this is what it says:

"Hank Haney and I have agreed that he will no longer be my coach. Hank is an outstanding teacher and has been a great help to me, but equally importantly he is a friend. That will not change.

"I would like to thank him for all he has done for me the past six years."

Rumors continue to swirl about the possibility Woods is planning to work with Orlando-based Sean Foley, whose clients include Sean O'Hair and Hunter Mahan. On Sunday, before Haney's resignation, Lorne Rubinstein of the Globe and Mail posted a friend-of-a-friend update on that rumor. Rubinstein writes about the stack-and-tilt guys, Michael Bennett and Andy Plummer, who are friends of Foley's, and what one of them might have said: "A source told me that Bennett said ... that Foley was going to announce within a couple week that he'd be working with Woods."

Personally, I think Tiger should blow everybody's mind and hire Phil Mickelson's former teacher, Rick Smith. Then Smith, fired by Mickelson, would be Woods' coach. And Butch Harmon, fired by Tiger, would be Mickelson's coach.

Anybody who coaches Tiger is going to have thier hands full. Being able to wipe Tiger’s hard drive clean isn’t going to be easy. Getting back to fundementals and slowing his swing down alone would get him back in contention.

I think it should be Johnny Miller, he knows everything.

I think he should get a shrink, not a golf coach, a shrink could help more

Charles Barkley would be my choice if Tiger wants to do a complete change.
