In a Feb. 20, 2007 file photo Tiger Woods uses his putter to indicate a point of interest to coach Hank Haney during a practice session for the World Golf Championships Accenture Match Play Championship in Marana, Ariz. Haney said late Monday in a statement to the Golf Channel that he enjoyed working with Woods but he thinks it's time for him to step aside as his coach.
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Tiger Woods is thanking Hank Haney for his six years as Swing Coach. He is not saying, however, who his next coach might be.
Haney said in a statement on his Web site Monday night that he has resigned. Woods posted a short comment on his Web site Tuesday that they have agreed Haney will no longer work with him.
He calls Haney an outstanding teacher who has helped him and a great friend. He says their friendship will not change.
Woods missed the cut at Quail Hollow and withdrew in the final round of the Players Championship with a sore neck. It was the first time he played consecutive tournaments without earning official money.
