Woods says Haneys still his coach


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Hank Haney is still Tiger Woods’ swing coach.

That’s the word today from Woods at The Players Championship.

Since Woods missed last week’s cut at the Quail Hollow Championship by eight shots, rumblings have grown about Haney’s future with Woods.

Woods was asked today about his status with Haney during his news conference.

“I’m still working with him, yeah,” Woods said.

Given the escalation of rumors Woods must know exist, and the intense scrutiny he knows Haney faces every time Woods struggles, it wasn’t an overly enthusiastic confirmation of work they’re doing together. Woods did not answer the second half of another question when asked if he’s seen Haney since Quail Hollow. Haney is not with Woods at The Players this week as Woods works the bugs out of his swing.
