THE BIG MISS by Hank Haney Audio Edition
Celebs come and celebs go while some are always top news, which is the case with tiger woods as evidenced by the interest in Hank Haney’s book and Tiger’s tourneys. Haney who has tutored more than 200 touring golf professionals and considered a topnotch golf instructor coached Tiger Woods from 2004 to 2010.
THE BIG MISS is a mix of golf and gossip. Haney relates that he was having dinner with his father the night he received a phone call from Woods. That call was received with a mixture of surprise, happiness, and the knowledge that his life was about to change - little did he know how much. Haney was one of the few in Woods’ inner circle, privy to the golfer’s moods, comments, and reactions. Hence, there’s much new in Haney’s story.
Haney devotes much of his story to Woods’ swing, however for this listener and so-so golfer at best much of it was beyond my understanding. As for the revelation of comments made by Woods, his opinions of others, etc. - those are all too easily understood.
If you want another look at the life and times of Tiger Woods, The Big Miss is your book.
