So Hank Haney, Tiger's swing coach, has resigned. Haney retooled Tiger's swing after the 2004 season, and he's been a more consistent winner in the latter part of his career because of it. However, in his past 2 events (Quail Hollow, MC, TPC, WD), his swing has looked awful. He's hit a couple of shots with the 3-wood that just popped up (think nose up in dg terms) went under 200 yards (think 275' with a Boss).
So when will Tiger get his swing worked out?
In other news, Tim Clark, the man who has made the most money on the PGA tour without a win, finally broke through on Sunday at TPC Sawgrass, carding a 66 67 on the weekend to win. Tim has been around a while, and has been a solid player for a lot of the international competitions as well as the President's Cup, so it's good to see him get that elusive win. Still not winning are Lee Westwood (3nd place) and Robert Allenby (2nd place).
I think people are watching less golf because of Tiger's struggles, but the outcome of the tournament is a lot more guesswork now. Keep in mind Tiger wins over 25% of the PGA events he tees it up in. That's an absurd amount. Ben Hogan is next at 20%. The great Jack Nicholas? A shade over 12%. So it's nice to see some new people winning, even though I'd like to see Tiger play well again, because he hits shots no one else can hit.
