After Tiger Woods played in the Honda Classic pro-am at PGA National, next stop on his schedule? His favorite of the week! — the pre-tourney presser.  And it was certainly the most awkward and eventful — by that, I mean, amazing, amusing, greatest, best, etc. — one in recent history (I’m told even better than at the Masters in 2010). The tone and atmosphere were a little tense from the get-go.

Tiger Woods’ former swing coach Hank Haney has written a tell-all about the six years he spent with the golfer — from the time he started working with him in spring 2004 when Tiger won 31 PGA Tour events, including six major championships, to late 2009 when the sex scandal was exposed and all hell broke loose. Tiger and Haney parted ways in 2010, a month after Tiger tied for fourth at the Masters. Since then, Haney hasn’t minced words when relentlessly defending himself against critics and engaging in public spats via Twitter. (Chip on the shoulder, anyone?)
