Tiger Woods thanked his former swing coach Hank Haney yesterday for their six-year working relationship but gave no hint as to a possible successor.
Haney said in a statement he had resigned from the position after helping the world’s No. 1 win 31 PGA Tour events and six major championships.
“Hank Haney and I have agreed that he will no longer be my coach,” Woods wrote on his website. “I would like to thank him for all he has done for me. 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’ response comes a day after he told a news conference he was unsure when he would return to the game after a painful neck injury forced him to quit The Players Championship in the final round on Sunday.
