Hank Haney Project Gets Big Ratings
By Kickntrue on 3/6/09
The Haney Project was the most watched debut for a tv show in Golf Channel History.
Let's not count chickens... but I imagine this will lead to more shows like this. I'm still waiting to see the show where they take an athletic 15 handicapper- and turn him into a scratch golfer. I think people want to know, "can a person be taught and trained" to that level. I can think of at least one volunteer for Golf Channel if they want to try.

Already been done, at least in print, read the excellent book by Tom Coyne, Paper Tiger. I am now reading his brand new book A course called Ireland, Coyne walks around the island playing golf, sampling the local pubs and eateries, and getting to know the Irish people, excellent read. tomcoyne.com
Personally I would like to know what a top instructor like Mr. Haney would charge to overhaul the average 12-15 handicapper to 0-4 hcp. As a 4 hcp. myself I would love him to try and make me a +1 and someone else pay the bill.
I was definitely anxious to see that show but mainly because watching Barkley play golf is just amusing. Im around a 15 myself but, good god, I wouldnt play at all with that swing.
