Hank Haney stepped down as Tiger Woods’ swing coach on Monday and on Tuesday Woods responded to the move via his website.
“Hank Haney and I have agreed that he will no longer be my coach. Hank is an outstanding teacher and has been a great help to me, but equally importantly he is a friend. That will not change,” Woods wrote. “I would like to thank him for all he has done for me the past six years.”
Woods began working with Haney in March 2004 and since then he was won 32 PGA Tour titles and six majors.
“It was my choice,” Haney told ESPN on Tuesday. “Six years is plenty
“In many ways because of all of the time that I have spent with Tiger, I may have learned more from him than he has ever learned from me,” Haney said in a statement issued to Golf Channel on Monday. “However I believe at this time that it is in both of our best interests for me to step aside as Tiger's coach.”
