Hank Haney Likes Tiger’s New Swing But Claims He Wasted Last 5 Years

December 9, 2014

Tiger Woods has one supporter of his new swing even after his last-place finish at the Hero World Challenge: former coach Hank Haney.

Haney, Tiger’s swing guru from 2004-10, live-tweeted several thoughts during Woods’ return to competitive golf after a four-month layoff, and while the results on the course were mixed, count Haney as a believer. Woods finished the tournament with rounds of 77, 70. 69 amd 72.

Working with a new swing coach, Chris Como, Woods had noticeable tweaks since his last appearance at the PGA Championship. The main shortcoming was his short game. For the week, Woods had nine mishaps around the greens, varying from chunked pitches to bladed chips. Even so, Haney appears optimistic about the future of his former pupil’s game.
