• The 61-year-old worked with Woods for six years from 2004-10
• Video footage emerged of Woods' swing on Twitter yesterday
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.
If reports r correct that Tiger shot 63 at Seminole last week then he can win the Hero World, I don't care if he hasn't played in 15 months.— Hank Haney (@HankHaney) November 27, 2016
He's playing 4 rounds w 17 other people and some of those guys haven't been playing a lot. Scores depend on the wind, I expect a top 5 finis https://t.co/niUxEzNc2o— Hank Haney (@HankHaney) November 28, 2016
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.
Can't believe coaches are out on social media already dismantling tiger before he has even pegged it up 1/2— Phil Kenyon (@SwashPutting) November 29, 2016
2/2 Give the guy a break and concentrate on your own players getting anywhere near him— Phil Kenyon (@SwashPutting) November 29, 2016
