HANK HANEY | TIGER WOODS

Hank Haney, the former swing coach of Tiger Woods, hasn’t been able to help himself by picking apart the 14-time major winner’s new swing on Twitter.


Haney, who worked with Woods for six years and six major wins from 2004-10, has been very outspoken about the 40-year-old – including in his book ‘Big Miss’ – and called his early 2015 comeback an ‘epic failure’.

And when images and video footage emerged in recent days (below) ahead of Woods’ return at the Hero World Challenge, Haney couldn’t resist but pass comment.

Here’s what he had to say, with emphasis on how low Woods was teeing the ball up.

However, Haney liked what he saw at the top of Woods' swing.

And, as a result, he has high expectations of him this week.







However, other coaches haven’t been too complimentary about all the dissecting of Woods’ swing.

Here’s what Phil Kenyon – putting coach to the likes of Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson – had to say.
