Well... Now that Hank is no longer Tiger's coach... I don't know how relevant he is anymore!!!
Probably his last chance to be in spotlight before he fades into obscurity...

I agree Jon, he is also selling his name to coaches online to become a "Haney Pro" . Maybe Tigers last paycheck bounced.....

"Most of the people involved with Woods have signed a nondisclosure agreement. Haney said he signed no such thing - "I didn't even have a contract," he said - although he said the book was not intended to "take jabs at anyone."
If the book is not written to take jabs at anyone, why was it written in the first place? For financial gains? Has professionalism gone down the drain for all those who are associated with TW or for that matter simply rub shoulders with him and couldn't resist the opportunity to exploited the situation, financially. I feel sad for TW. It's already more than 2 years and people are still dwelling on it. Are these people sadist? But that's the price to pay for being a celebrity. We should all leave his private life alone. Hank Haney have made enough money from TW, so has Butch Harmon. Will Sean Foley be next, if TW decide to change his swing again?

a tell all book will always be something "interesting"

it more or less would give us an idea of what's the Pysche of TW

Haney & Harmon are great coaches that's why they were able to give TW result's

Falling off usually happen in Life. Just like celebrity couple's

Once happy together & then ... "Unhappy Together"

I tend to see it from a different perspective

This is a result of TW being a victim of his own fame. People who were close to him wants to leech on it to milk it. He literally become a marketing machine during his hey days. He wasnt just a professional golfer no more.

Though, i symphatise with him as a person, he should have expected this when he signed to be marketed by marketing companies. Then again his minders would have told him about what happens when the value of his image depreciates. Everyone was gasping in excitement about how much he makes on endorsements. But what we are witnessing now is the exact repucussion when a marketing icon falls.

Then again, we will never know what is going on behind the scenes. Of all you know, Hanky would have to pay a cut of royalties to TW for his book.

its will be a book about golf and how TW evolved and improved under him.

Its like what we read from other ppl talking about Hogan only this time its not after the death of the player but after the death of an 'once in a life time' career.

TW reacted & made a comment

In an interview Thursday with ESPN, Woods said a new book set for release this spring, authored by former swing coach Hank Haney, was done for financial gain.

"I think it's unprofessional and very disappointing," Woods told ESPN.com, "especially because it's someone I worked with and trusted as a friend.

"There have been other one-sided books about me, and I think people understand that this book is about money. I'm not going to waste my time reading it."

That's hard to envision, since Woods reads practically everything written about him these days.

The higher they are, the harder they fall.

Hank's not some rookie coach so there's little chance he'll sign such an agreement.

Money grab. Pure and simple. Trying to make a few more bucks off of Tiger.

Not that it is the first or last time this will ever happen to someone in the spotlight.

Self interest is not the only horse in the race, but he is a pretty good one to bet on.

Actually I never like Hank Haney's face - has a very sly and cunning look. How come never asked permission can write a whole book about your ex-boss/client. An utter betrayal of the relationship.

Betrayal comes in all forms for rewards. And often it shows the betrayer' s level of selfishness, dignity and principle.
