Haney: Woods' chipping yips not going away


Paul Azinger said on Saturday that Tiger Woods' short-game woes could be corrected "in minutes." Hank Haney, one of Woods' former swing coaches, doesn't agree. He says Woods has the yips with his wedge game. “When you have the yips, you have issues,” Haney said. “This isn’t going away."

Haney made his comments on his show on Sirius/XM PGA Tour Radio.

Haney said watching Woods use a 4-iron to hit bump-and-run shots rather than lofting a wedge convinced him Woods has "a serious issue and he knows it."

Mis-hitting several chips and pitches at TPC Scottsdale, Woods shot 73-82 - the second round his worst as a pro - and missed the cut in the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
