Tiger's knee affected his swing

"Protecting Tiger's knee during the swing and still getting performance wasn't a simple thing," Haney writes....

"It was the shot he most dreaded, because with a clubhead speed of more than 125 miles per hour, a hook for Tiger could easily turn out to be a big miss."
