The Big Miss - My Years Coaching Tiger Woods

Hank Haney

More Information

Description:

The Big Miss is Hank Haney's candid and surprisingly insightful account of his tumultuous six-year journey with Tiger Woods, during which the supremely gifted golfer collected six major championships and rewrote golf history. Hank was one of the very few people allowed behind the curtain. He was with Tiger 110 days a year, spoke to him over 200 days a year, and stayed at his home up to 30 days a year, observing him in nearly every circumstance: at tournaments, on the practice range, over meals, with his wife, Elin, and relaxing with friends.

What Hank soon came to appreciate was that Tiger was one of the most complicated individuals he'd ever met, let alone coached.

On those days, it was impossible to imagine another human playing golf so perfectly. And yet Tiger is human-and Hank's expert eye was adept at spotting where Tiger's perfection ended and an opportunity for improvement existed. Always haunting Tiger was his fear of "the big miss"-the wildly inaccurate golf shot that can ruin an otherwise solid round-and it was because that type of blunder was sometimes part of Tiger's game that Hank carefully redesigned his swing mechanics.
