Former staffers’ action ‘upsets’ Tiger Wood
Abu Dhabi: Former Golf number one Tiger Woods has expressed his displeasure with his former caddy and swing coach after they spoke about him in public.
Hank Haney, Wood’s former swing coach is expected to release a book in March titled ‘The Big Miss’ about his tenure with him. Both of them went their ways in 2010 after Wood made a comeback in the midst of a cheating scandal that busted his marriage as well as his good-boy reputation.
“Certainly, it’s something I have to deal with. I get asked at press conferences what these guys have done, and that’s just part of it,” Tiger Wood told a press agency. Woods had last week revealed that the move was ‘unprofessional’ despite the swing coach reportedly not been asked to sign a nondisclosure agreement, The Age reveals.
Last November, his former caddy Steve Williams who worked with Woods for 12 years and 13 major championships, was criticized for an alleged racist comment at a caddie awards dinner.
During the awards dinner, Williams in response to a question about a celebration with his current boss, golfer Adam Scott, said, ‘It was my aim to shove it up that black arse.’ Williams later expressed regret on his website.
Woods who is making his debut appearance at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship is now finding it difficult to believe anyone. Am I disappointed? Yes. Frustrated? Certainly because I have to answer the questions. Hopefully this will end. I’m looking forward to getting out there and giving it a full season, which I haven’t done in a while,” said Woods.
