Tiger Woods is Already Annoyed By Your Hank Haney Book Questions
There are plenty of reasons for Tiger Woods to think the Hank Haney upcoming book is ridiculous. He already said how disappointed he was about it, but as with anything in the spotlight, the questions won't stop.
Woods was asked at his Tuesday press conference at the Abu Dhabi event about the Haney book once more, and his answers seemed more defensive about the question than the actual book being released next month.
"Certainly it's something that I have to deal with. I get asked at press conferences what these guys have done, and that's just part of it," he said. "Am I disappointed? Yes. Frustrated? Certainly, because I have to answer the questions. ... So I've answered them and I guess I'll have to continue doing it. Hopefully, this will come to an end."
Things didn't stop there. Tiger was then asked later in the press conference if he, "ever think Hank could write a book about you?" He simply responded, "No." Then, the reporter followed that up with, "and why not," which he responded, "I don't know."
And the same reporter followed that up with a question on if this forces Tiger to not trust people as much as he used to, which he responded, "One might say that."
The best part? One more reporter stuffed his finger into the bullet wound that is the Haney book, asking what is so wrong about a book about Tiger's golf swing. Tiger answered, curtly, "I think I've answered all the questions already on that."
The thing is, Tiger must understand these questions won't stop. They won't. Like, at all. Expect questions lobbed your way about the Haney book up until the Masters, and maybe after.
The book isn't being released until March 27, so you'll definitely get some at Pebble Beach and then even more will flood your way after people get their hands on this paperback. Don't blame the media. It's your old teacher who is stirring the pot.
