Hank Haney’s book, “The Big Miss: My Years Coaching Tiger Woods” hits stores today, March 27th, 2012.
“The Big Miss” reveals many ‘behind the scenes’ details of the life of Tiger Woods. By this point, you have likely read about a few of the details including how Tiger discouraged his then-wife Elin Nordegren from smiling on the golf course when Tiger performed well or won tournaments. After it’s release, the book has been said to contain more details of the life of Tiger that fans will certainly want to read about.
Woods has made it clear that he is not impressed with Haney’s decision to write and release this book. He told ESPN.com on a telephone interview that it was especially hurtful because ‘it’s someone I work with and trusted as a friend.’ He called Haney’s anecdotes ‘one-sided’ and a cheap way to earn money.
‘I’m not going to waste my time reading it,’ Woods said.
In the end of his 247-page book Haney wishes Woods well; he even thanks him for ‘an incredibly rewarding six years.’
Haney should be thanking him for the incredibly rewarding book revenue’s he’ll be receiving shortly.
With The Masters less than two weeks away, all of Woods’ energy will be focused on his golf performance. Aside from likely being annoyed with the media’s questions concerning the book release, the launch of this new book should not impact Tiger’s performance at the Masters. If anything, it may light a fire in his belly to perform well.
