After six years together, Hank Haney has informed Tiger that he's moving on.

In a statement released to the Golf Channel Monday night, Haney says, "Tiger Woods and I will always be friends, but I believe that there is a time and place for everything, and I feel at this time and at this place in my life I want to move forward in other areas."

Translation: I quit this bitch!

I am soooo tired hereing about tiger woods I could spit. He screwed up (royally). Deal with it. Get out of the public eye, and go on with life. Leave your family alone. And stay out of the PGA, because no offense, you are not worth it!!!

Tiger has been dupped first by his wife then by the rest of the people that surround him. Where's his attorney? You always here that you are innocent until proven guilty. Well, the beginning of Elin's strategy was to get him to go on National TV and ADMIT to his affairs. There's goes the PRENUP. I think that she planned for him to cheat on her since she KNEW that she stood to MAKE A LOT more from Tiger. It looks suspicious now. If she was NOT interested in his money she would of just been done with it. Now she wants to RENEGOTIATE the terms. Come on, she knew that women would be throwing themselves at him. She used his mother and his religion to get him to say how sorry he was eventhough she KNEW that she was getting the divorce. Did you notice that her mom and his mother were there?????. Things that make you go UMMM. Sorry, Tiger...money is the ROOT to ALL EVIL. (ERIN)

No, Dudes, he "quit" rather than be fired. His swing concepts just weren't working. Everybody has been calling for Tiger to fire him for years and go back to Butch Harmon.

As much as I despise Tiger for what he's done, one still has to acknowledge his "skill & ability" as a golfer (ie: notwithstanding his poor on-course behavior) ... and being the absolute "best" that he is, he's hardly in need of a "swing coach ... that's like Mozart taking piano lessons or Hitler signing up for a course in public speaking ... it doesn't make sense ! What Tiger really needs is a "life coach" to help him now, assuming he can still be helped. He probably had that with his father, until illness took him out of the picture.



ps: as the previous poster said, having a swing coach is very gay ... do you ever notice how stupid it sounds when these PGA'ers are always going on about "we need to make some changes" or "we are really excited" or "we think we're almost there", etc ... very gay ... very unhetero !

Get a grip folks. Tiger, John Daly or anybody else that plays sports does not owe me an explanation. All he ownes me is that he represent his sponsor and leave it all on the course, field,court track etc and give it his best shot. Nobody wants to spend money on some halfway effort especially in golf. If I tune in to see Tiger and Phil I am not looking for a Pro-Am with Bill Murray walking around playing with the fans. The fact is people are conditioned to enjoy dirty laundry because media makes it a big deal. Imagine the most dishonest news outlets in the media market taking the high road on a morality issue. WTF people!!



How many millions of dollars from the private sector was spent to impeach Clinton? Even with John Daleys' honest admission and his breakdown on the course he was hounded into submission by parascitic publications that rely on mis information and out right fabrications to sell papers.... As long as we continue to fund those efforts it wont go away.
