Video: Tiger reacts testily to questions about Haney book

February 29, 2012

A day after excerpts of Hank Haney's new book, The Big Miss: My Years Coaching Tiger Woods debuted online and in Golf Digest's tablet editions, the 14-time major champion was inundated with questions about the book's contents in a pre-tournament conference at the Honda Classic.

Most notably, Woods was asked to address Haney's assertion that Woods was prepared to leave professional golf from behind to join the military. Is it true? Woods wouldn't say. Nor would he say much at all about the book by his former coach. And if this exchange with the Golf Channel's Alex Miceli is any indication, he prefers not to be reminded that such a book even exists.

Translation: Alex Miceli, don't hold out for an invititation to Tiger Jam just yet.
