Hank Haney, Tiger Woods’ swing coach since 2004, gave the golfer his resignation Monday, and RadarOnline.com has the details.
Haney told the Golf Channel he’s had great times working for Woods, but feels it’s his time to step down, for which he did not give a specific reason.
“I know Tiger Woods will be successful in the future no matter who helps him,” he said. “As we all know, Tiger has been through a lot in the past six months, and I really believe that given the chance, mind free and injury free, we will all see Tiger Woods play once again like we all know he can.
“I wish Tiger well, not only with his golf, but in finding peace and happiness in all aspects of his life,” Haney said. “Tiger knows that if he ever needs me in any way, whether it be with his golf or just as a friend he can always call.”
Woods’ camp has remained relatively intact since news of his infidelities became public; his longtime caddy, Steve Williams, has stood by his side while expressing his disappointment in the golf icon. Woods, in the meantime, remains questionable for next month’s U.S. Open, after withdrawing from this past weekend’s The Players Championship with an injury to his neck.
