Tiger Dumping Haney?
By Kickntrue on 4/30/09
There are reports that Tiger may be dumping Hank Haney after struggling so far controlling his swing. Tiger denies these claims so maybe Hank has dumped Charles and has been spending more time with Tiger again.
Whatever the case- Tiger seems to have it going so far. He's just completed his first round at The Quail Hollow Championship at -7 and is currently in first place. He teed off early this morning and played a bogie free round. Now the afternoon groups will have to try to chase him down.
If you look at Tiger's stats they still aren't that good, especially off the tee where he's only hit 35% of his fairways. The rough has been cut to a very short 2 inches though and we all know who the best is at controlling the ball out of the rough.

3 stroke lead, tournament is as good as done
Let's not get too hasty with the predictions. Phil is 4 under after only 8 holes.
lol...phil....only chance he has of catching tiger is if it's for 2nd or 3rd place.
who the hell said tiger is dumping haney? I'm pretty sure Tiger said he has been pleased with how he is striking the ball lately, he's been upset about his putting.
i say tiger should hire charles barkley as his coach. i think it'd be a good combination.
My point of view is rather simple: On a scale of 10, Woods and Haney are 8.75 people and still should blend well and flourish; Phil, Butch Harmon, and the "other folks" are 5.25 people and need to make a lot of progress!! JWHpurist

JWH. WHAT? "8.75 people and still should blend well and florish". Did you read too much on that liquer column before? Tiger has had his frustrations in the past FEW games. I blame Steve Williams for the incomplete shots by Tiger. I quote "he lied to Tiger woods"* He has also been noted for telling Tiger an " Adjusted yardage"* based on Tigers adreniline. * Was quoted from Golf Mag. Dec. 2008. With all that info, do you blame coach or caddie?
Jake Bogardus says:
You are right Stevie has only been on the bag of top tier players player for like 30 years, and has won 13, count em, 13 majors with El Tigre. Want to know who is at fault for Tigers recent lose play, ummm I think its the guy swinging the club, Tiger himself, and he will tell you that. Haney is one of thee best, Stevie is one of the best, and Tiger is THE best, and at the end of the day if he hasn't won its his own fault. He putted horribly at Augusta, and I'm pretty sure that isn't Stevies fault.
JWH are you fricken high? What the hell does your comment mean? Please send me the rubric on how to assess people's relationships that you know nothing about. Thanks
I have a "higher level of respect" for Haney & Woods based on their contributions to "The Whole Life Experience" VS the actions of the others mentioned! I also have a much higher level of respect for Stan Thompson than a guy like Jesse Ortiz! I don't drink or smoke dope and "Kick The Crap Out Of Those That Do On The Course." Parsons probably Drinks "Ten High VS Daniels Black Label" and Bogardus "Smokes $Weed VS Gold". LOL JWHpurist
Also: Permit Woods some time to "Polish Off Thr Rust" from the layoff and see what happens. Golf is an easier game than Target Shooting that requires a massive amount of work and practice for perfect scores, but is possible with sufficient effort! Trust me I know "What The Hell I'am Talking About", JWHpurist
Cool......An opinion quantified to 2 decimal places, outstanding.

Mr purist. Your posts on several other topics as well as here, leave one pondering your ability to comprehend basic communication. The above and highly questionable "COMMENT" you stated makes no connection to the debate brought too hand. However your last 2 posts actually make sense. WOW first time. ATTA BOY!
BOGARD is correct, even this weekend Tiger beat himself. He couldn't putt. He couldn't hit the close shot. Give Sergio the best caddie and swing coach in the WORLD, will he be #1? To better explaine it for JWH thats n-u-m-b-e-r- o-n-e.

The Haney and Barkley thing was filmed while Tiger was recovering from his knee surgey. Tiger is not 100% regardless of what he says. Has anyone every had knee surgey? It takes about a year to a year and a half to get fully recovered. IMO Tiger and Haney are fine.
Merlin, do you know how much fun it is to land that aircraft in a 40 to 50 MPH quartering crosswind? JWHpurist
