ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates – Tiger Woods’ season-opening news conference lasted 30 minutes and included six different questions regarding Hank Haney’s impending book “The Big Miss.”
The answer, more or less, remained the same. “Am I disappointed? Yes. Am I frustrated? Certainly,” Woods said on Tuesday at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship. “I have to answer the questions. Hopefully this will be coming to an end.”
That, however, is probably wishful thinking. Haney’s book is scheduled to be released just before the Masters and will be a talking point through the season’s first major.
Woods was also asked if it was difficult, given his comments about Haney’s book and Steve Williams’ behavior last year, to trust people who are close to him.
“One might say that,” Woods said.
