Altvater: Tiger Woods’ agent rips Haney, “The Big Miss”Written by Fred Altvater | | BackNine@toledofreepress.com
That sound you hear is cash registers ringing all over the world. Tiger Woods’ ex-swing coach, Hank Haney, has written a book called “The Big Miss.” The book chronicles Haney’s six years working with Woods.
Excerpts of the book are hitting media desks and Tiger’s agent, Mark Steinberg, took the opportunity to make some rather unkind comments about the project.
Steinberg called Haney’s armchair psychology ridiculous and that Haney only cared about self-promotion.
Tiger has a press conference scheduled today at the Honda Classic. How long into it will be until the first question is raised about Tiger’s comments on Haney and Steinberg’s comments?
Evidently the book references Tiger’s wish to become a Navy SEAL. He did some extensive training and tandem parachute jumps.
Can you imagine Tiger Woods in fatigues rather than a Red Shirt?
I sincerely hope the book does not become just another expose. Inside information on Tiger’s training, practice ethic and mental strength could be a positive for golfers everywhere.
Steinberg is obviously just sticking up for his friend and paycheck, Tiger Woods. That is commendable but it only helps to sell more books.
